Luiz Santilli Jnr created Today's Flowers and asked me a few years ago to take over his role as host.  I was very happy to do so.  He occasionally pops in to say hello, so "Hello Luiz and thank you!"



Today's Flowers' home page can be found here.



I am linking with Laura's iHeartMacro here.  Thanks for hosting such a lovely meme Laura.

Oh my gosh! The clarity and crispness of these photos are just spectacular, Denise! I am in awe! I feel like I can touch that Bird of Paradise.

These are gorgeous, Denise...I can almost smell the flowers. :)

Ginny said...

Wow, your photographs are stunning! Love the bird of paradise flower. And a close up of a bee in flight, clear as a bell.I am so impressed. That is a hard shot to get!

Rose ~ from Oz said...

Gorgeous images Denise - and my Heliconias (re first image) are flowering madly at the moment, combination of the humid heat and the rains we've had I'm guessing.

Gorgeous photos, Denise! I love the bee. Enjoy your weekend.

Valerie said...

I've always liked the Bird of Passion flower. Once wanted to bring a rooting home from abroad but wasn't allowed. Shame, it would look so nice in my garden... smiles.

Beautiful flowers, Denise. I love seeing pretty flowers all year, but since we don't have anything blooming here now, seeing them in Winter is even better. Thanks!
