Flower of the Day: Pink Quill

I first saw this flower growing in the Orchid Garden of the Naples Botanical Garden but it wasn’t labelled. I took some photos but didn’t post them because I wanted to do a little research to find it’s name. What luck that there were several of these plants hanging on the border wall of the entrance boardwalk when they decorated for the orchid show and it had a pretty little sign telling me what it is. I find it absolutely delightful and hope it brings joy to your life today.

Favorite Flower of Today: Zennia

This was a flower growing in the Botanical Garden in January and I admired the colors for few weeks – and then they were gone. The people of the Naples Garden Club had pulled them and planted a new batch of seedlings. Now I have to wait until they bloom to see what colors the new ones are.

I’m looking forward to sharing some of the flowers blooming in the garden that aren’t water lilies and orchids over the next few weeks, linked with Cee’s Flower of the Day Challenge (FOTD).
