Today's Flowers #60

Oops ... i almost forgot...it's Today's Flowers Sunday! To visit pictures of lovely and rare flowers from around the world please visit the TF team by clicking Here.

Snapdragon, I love them as cut flowers. They come in a variety of colors and size.


This was originally given by a friend but it re-seeds and come up every year ... sadly, I don't know the name. One of these days, I will look it up. It is nice to use as fillers in a bouquet.


Wild morning glory, so invasive but provides greenery on our deck railing.

Happy Sunday everyone!

Hi there, Thanks for your kind words on my blog on the death of my brother. I appreciate it SO much.

Your flowers are beautiful. My mother used to grow Snap Dragons and loved them. I've never grown them--but may have to try. They are so pretty.

Hugs,
Betsy

Those are so beautiful - and now I have learned the name of a flower I have seen: snapdragon! That is such a lovely flower!

All three are lovely and as I scrolled down I noticed they all compliment each other in color. That made for a lovely post!

I can't get morning glories to grow - too hot maybe

Lovely flowers. Snapdragons are so delightfully hardy in the garden and some plants survive for a number of years.

I am glad Betsy pointed out the name. It is snap dragons. And I see them bloom every spring here in my sunny CA. You are a wonderful gardener, your blooms are always special.
