TODAY'S FLOWERS #282



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.

Apologies but no list this week as I am away from home with not as much computer time, and wi-fi connections, well sometimes they are good and sometimes not so much.  

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

Gregg found out about this place.  He has one of those apps on his phone that tells you about local attractions when driving through an area.  This garden popped up.  It was described by one reviewer as a ' little jewel of a place' and indeed it was.  We enjoyed our time here.  Even though this is January there were still a few flowers blooming, and I can only imagine what it is like in full blooming season.

We were at the Nature Coast Botanical Garden in Spring Hill, Florida.  Click here to see their home page.










Today's Flowers was created by our good friend Luiz Santilli, Jr.

It's hard to imagine all that beautiful color in the wintertime. We had snow this morning and everything is so gloomy and gray.

There are hidden gardens all over the place in England so such an app could seriously prolong your journey times.

Valerie said...

Denise, you always make the morning brighter with the flower pictures. Thank you.

I just love botannical gardens. I just like looking at the flowers. I drive my gardener friends crazy because I don't bother to learn wht the flowers are. I just don't want to mess up the right and left side of my brain I guess.

I love that "Welcome" sign! Nice images to brighten my day.
