An alpine forgrt-me-not from last weeks trip in Wyoming.
The entire plant is less than 2 inches across.

"Flowers". You guys are in trouble now. Ha.
I'm gonna hafta get back to you on this one.
Me, too, rcnaylor...this is my favorite subject. :)
I'll have to post later, too.
Flowering dogwood in Tokyo.....
I love all the photos.
crunchpa, what a bee-autiful garden...Heaven!
cranelady...who is your rose?
solstice98...it feels like Spring again! The Hibiscus is luscious.
ronf...so delicate...are the leaves fuzzy?
msmitoagain...very exotic looking and beautiful.
bigack....I like the deep grape color. Is it fragrant?
carol in california...simply beautiful.
May I post more than one? more than 2? more than 3? :)
Just a wildflower growing in my field.
Yes, Pam, you can post more than eight. Or twelve. (See how easily I make the rules?)
This is gonna be one long thread! Who can resist photographing flowers? The city folk will just have to bear with the rest of us.
I'll try to keep these images to a reasonable size.
Rose Abbaye de Cluny
Iris Let's Dance
Lupine My Castle
Phlox (It looks flashed, but I never flash flowers.)
This one needs no introduction!
Rose Crimson Sky
That's it . . . for now.
"cranelady...who is your rose?"
She's Belinda's Dream, a large shrub rose with hybrid tea type flowers. Great for Florida because it's resistant to black spot. Isn't she a lovely color?
Wow, beautiful pictures everybody. Love them all.
Well, lets just start with one from last week:
Vitex agnus-castus and Cosmos sulphureus
Chives and Golden Oregano
Salvia uliginosa and Bottle-us Tree-us :)
Papaver somniferum paeoniflorum - Peony flowered Poppy
Heaven help me, I can't stop....I'll do more later, if it's ok.
I'm with Pam. Love them all. The sunflowers are dazzlers.
"can't stop". Ha, I know that feeling. ;)
Abbaye de Cluny is to die for. I'm crazy about your phlox and sunflowers.
rc...fabulous. I can see each little pollen grain. And what color!
pfmastin, yes, the little forget-me-not leaves are fuzzy. This little guy grows at the tree line and higher in the mountains. The furry leavers are to protect it from the UV rays which is about off the scale at that altitude.
This is a shooting star from about the same elevation.
Awwww...so cute! I'm sure this tough little plant probably wouldn't appreciate being referred to as "cute". It's stunning. Such a good photo.
I searched the world over and found your clock in Geneva, I think :) We have a version of it in Frankfort, KY...near the capitol building of my home state. The petunias are stunning. What a beautiful background for a beautiful girl!
Shooting stars. What neat little flowers.
Of course, its hard to top a "wall" of dazzling petunias and an even more dazzling girl.
There are some great photos here....which should not surprise anyone. Here are a couple more.
Another flower from a botanical garden in Tokyo, Japan.
Thank you all!....love all of YOUR flowers!!
Pam, you're right, me and my daughter went over there for a short 10 day visit last year, the wall of flowers are from the Island Mainau Germany, only about 15 min. drive from the Swiss border, a lovely park.

Great flower pics. And congrats on a lovely daughter Konrad.
What fabulous pictures!
A couple still fresh with dew from this morning.
Konrad, your daughter is so beautiful!
An oldie I'd forgotten:
Oh goodness, I missed this thread.
I'm drooling over all your gorgeous photos!
Hope it's not too late to add a few of my own:
Black Dragon Lilies with Veronica spicata:
I'm loving your Allium. How pretty!
Glad you checked in. I'm with Pam, that allium pic is great.
Many Allium cultivars dot my gardens and contrast well with other blooms.
These are the blooms on a houseplant we have - from the spring. I have no idea what the plant is, but the blooms this year were beautiful. They are very very tiny and I had a new camera (Canon PS SX110 - not too advanced, but all new to me!) Close-ups of plants are about all I have mastered.
A bright little zinnia that was shining this morning:
What kind of thread is this? This is so Fabulous! I can't find the perfect adjective that can best describe how beautiful the flowers posted in this thread. I just can't help it to look over and over again. I'm so thankful for everyone for posting those lovely flowers.
gardenlover25...it's a "theme of the week" thread to submit photos...come join us!
