Today's Flowers # 74

My friend Luiz from Brazil does the Today's Flowers Meme, check it out. Come and join with your flower photos. Sunday at 2 GMT is the post time.


I'm looking back to last May when the flowers were in bloom and the bees were collecting pollen. Darla says they are Cornflowers.


This flower was quite beautiful on its own.



The variance in the flower colors is really neat.



You can see a lot of neat flowers at the above meme.

They are also called bachelor buttons. I love them, too. They come up in my veggie garden every spring, but usually die out when the weather gets hot.
