Flowers to Brighten Your Day

Before Spring and Summer 2010 fade completely from view, I want to share a few photographs that deserve a little front page feature here.  May they brighten this day of remembrance.


Honeysuckle Tree Blossom (?)





Buttercup (?)


Peonies


(Lobelia ?) Ellen says these are 'Plumbago'.


Clematis


Remembering all who lost their lives nine years ago today,
 and the courageous responders who struggle still.

  4. I'm remembering too...

    ... and well done to Obama for soberly countering that crazy cleric...

    Remembering, remembrance, is marking, recognising, respecting, honouring. We must always remember...

  6. Thanks for sharing these photos. It takes a special mindset and soulset to remember hideous strategy with offerings of beauty. They are all gorgeous and I, like George, was especially taken by the lobelia.

  7. Beautiful pics of the flowers as usual. The blue flowers look like plumbago to me. At least that's what we call it. The clematis picture is especially nice.

  8. Beautiful flowers, whatever name they go under.
    A rose by any other name smells just as sweet.

  9. Your garden's offerings are a beautiful garland of remembrance Bonnie

    Yep Ellen is right - it is Plumbago... Lobelia is a little ground cover...

    Happy days
