Today’s Flowers

Welcome to Today’s Flowers!  Out of the several gazanias I planted in pots this one turned out to be most colourful. Below, again in a container is a potted dianthus adding a welcome look to the entrance of our house.

I took these pictures of the flowering trips on a trip last month. By now the flowers must be gone but these are what we see around us in the cooler months.

Bare trees with blooms are a common sight till the end of February or early March. I don’t know what this is called but we did see a few of them on the roadside. The shot below of peach blossoms was taken from a slow-moving car.

In the wild, there were several yellow blooms, somewhat like the flowers of the shrimp plant. I had never seen these blooms before but it was a joy to take a road where, at every turn, such delights in flashes of gold or red, or lavender appeared.

  1. Bare trees here, too. Probably till the first of April. Your flowers are wonderful, what a huge splash of color the gazania is!! And I love the dianthus fringed edges.

    Lovely flowers … that Gazania is a stunner! Those yellow wildflowers look interesting … especially if their form is similar to the Shrimp plant.

    What stunning blooms on the roadside trees! These don’t flower in our part of the world. Your potted plants are so pretty too.Hope you are having a nice weekend.

  5. I’ve always admired your roadside flowers Kanak and these are no exception. That first one is my absoloute favourite. I love how the colours blend like that together on the petals – it’s so pretty.

    I like your roadside flowers. Every now and then I see some gorgeous flowers at the road side but have never stopped to take a photo. I don’t carry my camera around. Maybe I should change. 🙂

  7. Your Dianthus look like a pink pillow. Dreamy!

    All your pictures are so pretty but that Gazania is a work of art. Wishing you a beautiful day.

    Gazanias…never heard of it. It is stunning, looks a bit like the Zinnia. / Tyra

    I thought the gazanias looked like our zinnias too. So pretty. And I love the dianthus – they smell so sweet and spicy. Your road-side flowers are lovely. Nice pics.

    I just came back from a trip to St. Maarten, an island in the Caribbean. While in a jewellery shop, I spoke to the owner (he was from India). I told him I had a blogging friend from India who had beautiful flowers in her garden. He asked where and I couldn’t remember. Anyway, just so you know, your friend from Canada was talking about your lovely gardens to someone in the Caribbean.
    Such a small world.
    Take care,
