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.

"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?

I'm with Pam. Love them all. The sunflowers are dazzlers.

"can't stop". Ha, I know that feeling. ;)

RE: Theme of the week 'Flower'

Oooh, Alisande
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!

RE: Theme of the week 'Flower'

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.

Hi konrad,
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.

Thanks Ron.

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.

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.

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.
