TODAY'S FLOWERS # 336

You can find all kinds of beautiful flowers from around the world if you click here.  A new link opens on Saturday at 12.00 a.m. (East Coast Standard Time USA) and closes the following Thursday at 11.30 p.m.



I am never really sure when id'ing the names of the lovely flowers that I take photos of.  I rely heavily on the generous spirit of my more knowledgeable blogging friends.  I do believe that the foreground flowers in the photo below are Cleome.







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.

  1. Thank you for the name. I've seen those flowers before and didn't know what they were called. Cleome. Let's hope I can remember.

  2. Beautiful, as usual. I think the spiky blue ones are annual blue salvia. Pretty!

  3. The big tall one is called a Spider Plant. Oh, that is right, you have the proper name!

  10. I'm glad you have some answers... I couldn't even find those flowers in my wild flower book. Perhaps it doesn't cover the US.

  20. The white ones in the last photo look like a type of onion...Allium? The purple in the photo with the Cleome or Spider plant look like a type of veronica or Salvia ( a type of sage) but without smelling them I can't tell.

    Also these look like many annuals interspersed with a few perennials. I would be interested to know where you took the photos.

    The Cleome are a weed as far as I am concerned. And the Allium spread like ...onions.
