Today's Flowers

This is what is flowering in my garden today

an Iris



a golden Tree Paeony



a Prunus with a heavenly scent



a pink Flowering Cherry



a red leaved Crabapple



a Wisteria outside my bedroom window



Bluebells and Cape Weed in the grass



Malus floribunda scenting the air



Scilla peruviana a haven for bees and a joy to the eyes.


What is flowering where you are today?

  2. Arija - I have just spent the afternoon (a lovely Autumn day. here) pruning my tree peony, cutting back my iris plants and pruning various shrubs - and in your garden these very things are in bloom' What is in bloom here?
    Kaffir lilies in scarlet all over the garden, a few late roses and some rudbeckia. Have planted lots of bulbs today too.

  18. Ellen B,
    if I posted all the flowers that bloom today, you would still be scrolling through them next Sunday.

    Paz,
    Luck has little to do with gardening, if you care to check out my post for August 'A Tired Gardener's Complaint' or 'Gardener's Hands' you may understand why.

  24. Hi Arija, these are a fantastic variety of the most beautiful blooms. Truly great photographs. Thanks for stopping by my blog and identifying a couple of my flowers. Much appreciated.

  25. Hi Arija, what wonderful flower photos. As our garden goes to sleep, yours is in full splendour. We do have the odd rose hanging on, the kaffir lilies have gone over now. Lots of violas are still showing their smiling faces, plus a pretty pink potentilla. The berries are gorgeous though.

    We have crabapples and golden leaves.

  27. Wow, you must have some kind of yard! These are beautiful. My flowering cherry hasn't started dropping it's leaves yet and won't flower until spring. I love those little pink flowers and so do the bees. :-)

  44. We have had a frost so there isn't much left that is flowering except for my container Mums. I don't think they will last much longer. But I still hear insects at night so there is still some life around the pond.
