Today’s Flowers/Fallen Blooms

Welcome to Today’s Flowers. For today’s post, the images come from my sister’s garden. I gathered some fallen blooms (there were many) and clicked these images.

The Coral Jasmine/Nyctanthes arbortristis. The flowers bloom at night and the blooms fall to the ground in the morning.

The Sleeping Hibiscus or the Firecracker hibiscus.

And a profuse bloomer from the Ruellia family. An easy maintenance shrub which loves the sun…direct or partial.

My thanks to the TF team: Santilli, Denise,Pupo,Sandy Carlson.

Thank you for visiting. I hope you have a great Sunday!

    The first flowers remind me of the fragrance that is in the air around them. Of course I’m just guessing they have a fragrance. Lovely..

    Randy has guessed right- those coral jsmine blooms have their special fragrance. I liked the pale pink barleria. I have a purple one, which is full of flowers now.

      Padma…your purple ones in full bloom must be beautiful! I did a post on the Coral jasmine two years ago which is why I didn’t want to go into all the details!;>)

    The Coral Jasmine reminds me of my childhood and it has a distinctly wonderful fragrance.
    Lovely post, and I enjoyed going through your other recent posts as well.

    • kanak7 says:

      Celine, thank you for stopping by. That fragrance is associated with my childhood too. We had a tree…a prolific bloomer and the fragrance in the evenings was delightful!

  4. Beautiful and interesting flowers…I love the Coral Jasmine!

  5. Mesmo no chão elas não perdem a beleza!

  6. That was a very creative way to show your lovely flower photos today Kanak. Does the Jasmine have a lovely scent?

  7. What lovely pictures of fallen blossoms. Around here, Jasmine and Hibiscus have strong romantic symbolism.

    • kanak7 says:

      Thanks Ginny. About the jasmine it’s the smell that comes to mind. I haven’t really come across the kind of connotations here. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Kanak.
    your fallen glory is so very beautiful. The night flowering jasmine must exude a heady perfume to sleep by.

    I don’t know what is going on in ciber space but it took ne 20 minutes to download your site! How is that for devotion?

    • kanak7 says:

      Arija…OMD…I wonder if that happens with others too! But the devotion part…thank you so much for waiting that long!!:)))) Always a pleasure to have you here!

    What a unique and lovely way to show blossoms! I must try that sometime. I love Jasmine. We don’t natively grow it here in Canada, but can buy it in pots for overwintering indoors. The scent is so exotic. And it’s also my granddaughter’s name. Jasmine, not exotic. LOL!

    Thank you for sharing your butterfly story on my blog. I have seen many sulfur butterflies this season.

      Wendy, I often take pictures of fallen blooms but in most cases they lie scattered. So the results are never good. In this case I gathered hem and the effect was better. It was fun being there with my little nephew following me all across the length and breadth of the garden. I like your granddaughter’s name. Maybe not exotic but beautiful:) (Hugs)

    hey they look nice even on the ground! Flowers are just simply delightful 😀

  12. One says:

    That’s beautiful and creative. I didn’t think of taking photos of flowers this way.

  13. Susie says:

    I like the pretty little piles of the spent blooms.

    Have a great week Kanak.

  14. Those fallen blooms still look fresh and pretty 🙂

  15. Such lovely blooms even if they have fallen to the ground. 🙂
