TODAY'S FLOWERS # 338

You can find all kinds of beautiful flowers from around the world if you click here.  Our 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.



These are photos from last year, July 2014.  We were at The Norfolk Botanical Garden, one of our favorite places when we visit family in the area.  I will identify when I can.


This is called "Variegated Glory Bower - Clerodendrum thomsoniae - 'Variegata' Lamiaceae - Cultivated"



I am sorry, I don't know this one.



The marker nearby read, "Daylily - Hemerocallis - 'Harem House' - Hemerocallidaceae - Cultivated"






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

Beautiful and pretty!

Derek said...

Super photos, and you're quite an expert on flower identification too. I'm more of an is-this-a-weed kind of guy, so I'm very impressed by your expertise.

Have a great weekend.

Wonderful pics. I especially love the daylily.

Hi dear Denise,

Your flowers are beautiful and refreshing, and you are much more knowledgeable than I in the names of them. The one you said you didn't know the name of....it reminds me of Clematis, except Clematis is larger, this looks like a mini one. LOL! I enjoyed seeing these photos, thank you so much for sharing. :)

Now that two of my granddaughters are moving to Norfolk, I will have to visit them and perhaps finally get to this garden. Beautiful shots, obviously taken in summer because I hear they're covered with snow this week.

Jeanne said...

Wow... these photos are excellent! Makes me wish for summer.

Birgitta said...

We like to visit Botanical Gardens; just wish we could see this one in person; your pictures are the next best thing!

Lovely lagoon Denise. (ps - I do hope you manage a trip to Italy sometime; it's well worth the effort!)

Absolutely gorgeous! I'm looking forward to seeing the photos of the flowers you'll take in Hawaii.
