Today's Flowers # 95 - More From Mexico

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.


Here is a Bird of Paradise, I really enjoy this flower.
This next two are daisy looking flowers but not sure which kind. Carletta said they were Gazania, I grew them last year. Oh how the memory fails as you get older.
This was a different color.
Have a flowery day.

I was also thinking the last two are gazania! But I really love the bird of paradise flowers! they are so exotic!!! I still find it hard to believe they actually bloom that way!

Those flowers are utterly gorgeous, my friend. Works of art themselves.

These are very beautiful, Tom. The Bird of Paradise gave me a sense of deja vu - my aunt had them planted around the pool cage when she was alive. They always put a smile on my face. Love the colors on the Gazania.

I'll be back to look at your Mexico photos...
