TODAY'S FLOWERS AND iHEARTMACRO

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

Mine were taken from a trip to a local garden last September.  This purple flower I believe is some kind of trillium.  Please let me now if I am wrong.



One of the many lilies in the garden blooming that day.


I am hoping I have identified my orange flower correctly.  I believe it is a Mexican sunflower.  The information I found said they were three-inch, bright orange flowers on a medium-green bushy plant.  It is an annual and is good for gardeners who are looking for heat tolerance.  It averages from 4 to 6 feet tall and attracts butterflies and hummingbirds.  Self sows.

  5. I've seen the first two flowers in Japan, where I live, but I've never seen the third one. It is very beautiful. I wonder what it is called.

  32. Beautiful shots. I like the orange of the Mexican sunflower...it might actually survive in my area...

  33. Gorgeous flowers Denise. Actually the first flower is a native plant called Tradescantia or Spiderwort. There are many varieties and cultivars and colors like purple, pink, lilac and white. I have them all over my garden and they are stunning. I hope that helps.

    Wishing you a wonderful week!!
