Today's Flowers #47

My friend Luiz from Brazil does the Today's Flowers Meme, check it out. Come and join with your flower photos. Sunday at 4 GMT is the post time. I will be leaving on vacation tomorrow morning and will try to visit when I get back.

I have posted flowers in honor of our Independence Day Weekend. The first is a Red Lilly from a friends garden. I think it is called Starburst.
The second is a White Peony from my garden.
The third is a Blue Clematis from a friends garden.
I do hope all in the USA are having a great celebration.

Jack and I unfortunately had to attend my brother's funeral on the Fourth of July where most of the funeral floral tributes were in red, white and blue since my brother Paul was a Korean war veteran.

P.S. I just love the top pic of the dragonfly on the flower. Very, very nicely done!

My friend, wonderful post for TODAY'S FLOWERS!
But I loved that old Packard in the other post.
At 1950 my father had one Packard 1937, 8 cylinders (in line)!

Hugs,
