TODAY'S FLOWERS #285 - February 22nd, 2014

The link to Today's Flowers on the home page opens at 12.15 a.m. every Saturday, Eastern Time (US).  The old link will close the previous Thursday at 11.30 P.M.

To see beautiful blooms from around the world you can click here.

This pretty wildflower is called the Swamp Lily (Crinum americanum) and was found on a walk in the Everglades National Park.

I read somewhere that there are 15 native species of Morning Glory in Florida.  Mine was found not too far from the Spider Lily.  


I would like to thank last week's participants by sharing their links here.  Your names appear as they do on the Today's Flowers home page and are not in alphabetical order.  If you share more than one photo I will repeat your blog address and name if provided.

  1. the swamp lily is very pretty. i like morning glories, too.

  2. Love them - the crinium in particular. Thank you.

  3. These flowers are pretty. White ones are my fav. Both photographs make me feel like I could reach into the monitor and touch them.

    I did read your previous blog and enjoyed it very much! I just didn't get a chance to view it until a few minutes ago after you had posted this one. The pictures of the birds were great, especially the one swimming. The alligators and turtles - well - I'm afraid we have personality conflicts. :)

  4. 15 varieties! I have two of them in my balcony.

  5. the native flowers are very unique and picturesque.

  6. Wonderful set of Photos from you my friend. Many thanks for your visit and kind comments.

  7. Denise, lovely flowers and images. The Swamp lily is my favorite. Have a happy weekend!

  8. The swamp lily is an interesting flower, Denise.

    I also caught up with your previous post and yes I did manage to find the alligator. Those turtles are something else, would love to see them in real life.

  9. The flowers are lovely. Happy Saturday!

  13. I hated morning glory when we gardened in Oregon because it wanted to choke everything else to death. But I love the wild ones here.

  15. I'm nutty about morning glories...Nothin could be finer!

  16. Very pretty flowers - the purple one has a tropical look to it.
