Today’s Flowers – In soft colours

Hope you are having a nice weekend.

I found these pretty flowers on my walk. They remind me of orchids and irises – are you able to identify the plant? These are grown by the coast, so I’d imagine that they are pretty hardy.

After seeing the many colourful flowers and gardens on the blogosphere, I want more colours in my garden. So I went shopping and  bought this daisy variety (Argyranthemum) recently. It tolerates dry period and is great for pots as well as for hedges.

I bought a few geraniums too, but that will have to be another post since I haven’t taken any photos.

Thanks for visiting. Do leave a link/comment, so that I can visit you too. When I see your lovely flowers, I’d probably want to buy more plants. Unfortunately it’s getting a little crowded on the balcony…

I wish you a great week ahead.

Friendship is the most beautiful relationship on earth. Share this wonderful relationship with the most beautiful object on earth the flowers. Flower is the symbol of joy, love, happiness, and passion. Every flower has its own image and importance and its own emotion symbol.

Hello there, nice to be here..I will be glad to hear from you soon.
