Today's Flowers on Sabbatical

Today's Flowers is on sabbatical until August 18 due to some technical issues the host, Luiz Santilli, Jr. explained at the home site here.

I want to thank Luiz for starting this fun meme and for his efforts to reopen it in August.

I'm will probably keep posting flower shots at the end of the weekend.

This time of year is a particularly good time for finding flowers to photograph where I live.

The first shot is a hydrangea blossom, the second is my black-eyed susan (rudbeckia), the third is coneflower (echinacea), the shot above is hibiscus, the shot below is coneflower.

I love dandelions and never understand people who hate them. Below is one of my volunteer dandelions.

I have coneflowers all over my garden and have been photographing them a lot lately.

They are at many different stages with some flowers barely started and others in full bloom.

All of the flowers above are from my garden. The planter below is at a shopping center.

The rest of the shots are of cana lilies at a park.

I like cana lilies particularly in large groups like the park has.

They require a lot of room to grow.

I guess I'll stop here.
