Funny, Fantastic and Favorite Flowers! 🌺

Hahaha just goes to show that there really are fan fics about everything, @Amethyst! :joy: And totally agreed- even if there was “smell-o-vision”, I think I’d pass this time! :laughing:

They do seem to be very rare! And same here, @Siofra- I’d line up to see a lovely and rare nice-smelling flower, but a stinky one? No thanks! :grin:

I’m not sure why it’s endangered, @Jeannie1- that’s a good question! Even if it is quite smelly, it’s always sad to hear about species going extinct :cry:. It makes me wonder what wonderful flora and fauna existed in the past that we no longer know about! :t_rex: :herb:

You’re welcome, @Christina4! :blush:

Glad you liked it @Abs53- it really is a gorgeous plant :purple_heart: I’ve seen smaller Wisteria and it’s lovely, but to go to the tunnel and be surrounded by it would be like a dream come true! :star_struck:

A flower inside a flower, inside a flower. We found this in my Tiger Lilies this afternoon! That has to be a good something if not just beautiful :heart_eyes:

We were watering the flowers in our half circle out front. It’s between our dinner plate Hibiscus & behind a small bit of daisies. I cant wait for those & our Rose of Sharon to bloom. They are doing really well so far. Fingers crossed :crossed_fingers:

Thank you, I can’t take credit for the photo, my daughter took my phone & started enhancing the flower. She did a great job though! It’s a great way to capture the flower with the water.

We got this flower as a seedling from my neighbor. It’s a Dahlia. It just started blooming this week & it’s beautiful! I love to sit on my porch & look at it in the sunlight. :two_hearts:

The Dahlia is breathtaking. Thank you for sharing. It could be a desktop background or perfect profile pic. Can I steal it?
