Today's Flowers

Since I love gardening, I thought of participating in the Today's Flowers by Luiz and friends. If you visit his site you will see various participants posting all sort of gorgeous flowers ... some of them I've never even seen before! Instead of posting various blooms from my garden, I decided to post maybe two kinds at a time. Dahlias and Lilies are now showing off their beauties so here are my entries from my garden. Enjoy!









The following are from my friend, Josie's garden.

They are all beautiful shots. Perfect infact. Ideal to make a collage. You can use Picasa and go for mosaic frame collage. There are options to choose from.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

Love the dahlias. The day lilies I see them a lot in the Botanical Gardens. You showed us a variety of flowers.
Nance, thanks for the visit. I checked out your profile. Pilipino po ako. I am Chinoy, they say (50/50). I see we have some mutual friends.
Enjoy your garden and the "apo's", the family! See you around. Have a great week.

hi!

I came from Tita Beng's blog. It's my first time here and I enjoyed reading some of your articles.

The blooms in your garden are awesome. I can imagine how much time you put into your garden. I wish I have that green thumb too. I only do container gardening. This season,I only have herbs.

I got my musical notes at Crowleys Nursery in Sarasota Florida. I do not know how it would do in the North. They are in the clerodendron family ..about $20.00 a bush I believe..sandy I love them because of their continual movement once a bloom more notes then spray out the confetti look, more note etc. In winter and into Spring they look very dead but are not..sk

Tracy said...

Gorgeous portraits of your dahlias and lilies, Nance...those bright pink dahlias are calling my name! ;o) Just love seeing all these beautiful views from your garden--you really have a great green thumb! Happy Day, my friend ((HUGS))

Mari said...

Gorgeous flowers, Nance. You truly have green thumb and toes. LOL

I'm having a hard time logging on. It must be the heat that's affecting the pcs here. We were having 90F deg. temps for the last few days...and that's in the shade.

Hello, Ate Nance. You're garden is so colorful with flowers...
I wish I can make even just a miniature garden and photograph the flowers in macro...
