TODAY'S FLOWERS #320 and LAURA'S iHEARTMACRO

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



My photos were found in Manassas Virginia, all except the one below of the beautiful leaves tinged in gold.  They were nearer home on the curb near a traffic light.  I know the pink and yellow mums but not sure of the other two.








Other participants of TODAY'S FLOWERS can be found here.

Beautiful Autumn color Denise. I think the leaves are coleus plants. We used to grow them. Thank you for hosting!!

Denise, I don't think I've ever seen quite a display as the coleus leaves near your home. The colors are very vibrant and beautiful, especially the last one.

The second photo is of one of the hundreds of varieties of coleus plants. Distinguished for their leaves, their flowers form on large spikes, which someone has apparently removed. The city is taking care of these plants at the curb.
I grow coleus in pots every year. Except for recognizing this coleus is one of the older varieties, I don't know its name. They all have names. I generally grow 'Twist and Twirl' and 'Strawberry.'

Beautiful flower shots my friend, thank you so much for sharing those wonderful flowers. =0)

Gunilla Bäck said...

I love the mums and the pretty leaves. Have a wonderful weekend!

Hannah said...

The mums are perfection, and the coleus and begonias are so colorful. I've seen the pretty purple flowers in the last shot but no names come to mind.

Hannah said...

Google is amazing. The last flowers are Duranta erecta 'Sapphire Showers'.

William Kendall said...

They're pretty, particularly those blue ones.

LOVE those vibrant splashes of colour.

Anni said...

The purple flowering bush is called a duranta. And the wine colored trimmed in a muted lime green is a coleus [not sure that is spelled correctly]...and the smaller, blooming plant with 'waxy' leaves below the coleus are begonias.

Mascha said...

Wow, that's a pink!
And I very like the coleus.
Have a great sunday :-)
