B is for blooms


                              ABC Wednesday  ¸¸.•*¨*•¸¸.•*¨*•¸¸.•*¨*• Today's Flowers

Not my best ever photographed blooms, but fresh from my garden. This is the lantana I rescued from an impossible place in my garden to be properly potted and taken care of. It would have probably survived where it originally found a place to grow by itself, but now I can enjoy the beautiful blooms  right outside my door. I enjoy how the blooms change color as they mature, which results in different colors in one flower.

  2. I love the color of your lantana. I have a lot of it in my garden but mine is orange, red, and yellow. Your pastel is so lovely.

    B is for brevipedunculata

  3. Beautiful blooms, indeed! I have lantana bushes in my garden, pink like yours and yellow, too. They've grown so big. One thing good about lantana is that it never stops blooming.

    Hope you have a blooming week!

  11. I love lantenna and haven't seen it for a while. It grows in Hawaii just fine, but I don't think it survives the winter here in NM. What a sweet shot!

  12. Oh, that's pretty! Lantana is the one which is attractive to hummingbirds and bees, isn't it?

  14. BEAUTIFUL, Mar....That is a different species of Lantana than we have here....The Blossoms are much fuller there in Spain than on ours here in Los Angeles...And here, Lantana grows wild, in a number of colors.

  26. The Malaysian and Singapore people don't like lantana for it's extreme odor. Does you have it? I won't tell you what they call it. LOL

  27. I love Lantana but my partner says it won't survive our weather. Sigh.

  30. This flower is really fascinating - one flower and different colours.
    I never stop beeing thrilled by Lantana.

    btw. Later this week I'll post on the Nordic ABC - P, from our trip in 1994 to Puerto Montt. All photos are (bad) scannings from slides, but I think you might recognize. I'll tell you when posted. Friday at the latest.

  31. If I were a Bee, I would Buzz right to those flowers, without a Backward glance!

  32. I like how hydrangeas have different colours depending on the soil, getting a blue one to stay blue is difficult, very pretty.

  34. They are beautiful, especially the predominant color. We have two lantana plants, just put in this spring. Not doing too well. I think they need more water or better soil. We just put them in to cover a couple of bare patches
