TODAY'S FLOWERS #319 and i Heart Macro

You can find all kinds of beautiful flowers on the TODAY'S FLOWERS home page here.


This is a Spider Lily as identified by Ginny of Let your Light Shine.  Thanks Ginny and thank you Dianne of Schmidleysscribbling for mentioning it also.  Blogging friends are always great for helping with identification and I always appreciate the help.



The flowers and fluttery things are fast disappearing.  These photos were taken last May.  













Thank you Hannah at Weeding on the Wildside who identified this as a Poke Plant.

  1. The second flower is amazing. It looks tropical, and I have never seen one like it! The butterfly, skipper, and bee are wonderful macros, sharp and gorgeous! The first flower is a spider flower.

  3. I often see the plants that look like the one in the last picture where I live around this time of the year, and I wonder what it is called.

    Your photos of the little creatures and flowers are wonderful.

  6. Love the purple flower image with the bee best.

    My father used to have a lot of the spider plant in his yard. Grown from seed.

  13. That first bloom looks like cat's whiskers. We have those here in red and white. I so enjoyed seeing all the clouded sulphur and the sharp focus on the bee's eyes. Very nice.

  15. What a beautiful set. Strangely enough, the big bee against the blurry purple flowers is my fave. Wonderful impact in this.

    Denise, I can't seem to get my image to show up in TF today. I quit and reopened my browser, but the image just wouldn't show. Here is the link to my weekend tulips:

  17. Lovely summer flowers, it brings a pang of longing for next year. I make up for loss of spring and summer by starting flowers under lights in late November. The last photo is the developing fruit of the poke plant, which will turn black-purple. An enormous one sprung up when we had a tree cut down, quite a surprise.

  19. The first flower is a Spider Lily. My mom planted those one year and the next year they came up everywhere. Yes, the last photo is pokeweed about to bloom. I have been pulling them up all over my garden. Birds love the berries, so you know who planted them.

  22. Nice pictures - we are getting these animals back now!

    Our apple trees have just got a decent head of flowers, and the bees are very happy as a result!
