12 Varieties of Stunning Flowers in my Neighborhood

Sharing is caring!

Time seems to be flying by around here. It is the tenth of the month and you know what that means.   Yes it is time for me to join my friends on Ten on the Tenth for another project.  This time we have gotten together to share flower related ideas.  Last month we shared beauty and fashion ideas

Today I am sharing photos of 12 varieties of stunning flowers that grow in my neighborhood. Now if there is one thing you, my regular readers, know about me, it’s that I have a brown thumb.  I am terrible at keeping things alive. So when this idea came along I really struggled with it. 

​Be sure to scroll all the way down to see what my blogging friends came up with this month.

While I may be terrible at keeping plants alive I would like to think that I’m pretty good at photography. So instead of showing you how to kill flowers in your gardens, I’ve chosen to show you the beauty in my neighborhood. I live in a zone 7 planting area if that is of any help.

I’m going to keep the talk to a minimum and let you enjoy the flowers.

If anyone has any idea what this one is please let me know in the comments.  To me it looks like the flowers from a zucchini plant but in the wrong color.

Let’s talk about this one for a moment.  It looks like a Busy Lizzy, but I didn’t find any that had leaves like these.  What is your opinion?

I have to say one thing about photography.  It forces you (in a good way) to pay attention to things you normally don’t notice.  I hope you’ve enjoyed my photo essay on 12 varieties of stunning flowers that grow in my neighborhood.  I’m sure there are many more.  Which one was  your favorite?

I have a brown thumb too. If I added up the money spend on dead flowers each year I'd probably have a heart attack. Love your photography! Thanks for sharing. They are beautiful!

Thank you Cindy. I feel better knowing that there are more of us out there. I love flowers, they are so inspiring, but I leave the growing to others.

Thank you Jemma, and I never would have paid attention had it not been for this project.
