Cactus is in flower; looks and smells amazing, but only lasts for a couple of days. I planted the seeds from this plant last year, and now have more baby cacti than I can practically keep. #florespondence

Ça y est, la saison des pluies commence officiellement aujourd’hui à Fukuoka (une petite semaine plus tôt que la moyenne). Pour célébrer ça, quelques photos d’hydrangeas prises tout à l’heure, dans la chaleur moite avant la pluie.

#SpiderSunday × #bloomscrolling: This year, at least, the _Zygiella_ spiderlings emerged in concert with the horse-chestnut blossoms. (I actually like these even more than cherry blossoms.)

A tiny spiderling on the underside of a leaf. It is beginning to develop the dark-and-white folium (leaf-shaped dorsal marking) it will have as an adult.

I went for a walk and saw all three of my favourite #wildflower genera - Veronica (speedwell), Vicia (vetch), and Viola (violet)

(it is a coincidence that they all begin with V)

#flowers #florespondence @plants

Veronica (speedwell) - tiny four-petaled flowers, intense blue with white centres
Vicia (vetch) - pinnate leaves with climbing tendrils and purple pea flowers
Viola (violet) - vertically symmetrical light purple flowers and heart-shaped leaves

the Ranunculus had trouble establishing himself in my micropond. I actually forgot he was there when, without me even noticing, he sneaked a flower in a shadowed spot between the swordleaf reeds.

which was promptly chomped by (probably) the slugs ☠️☠️☠️


A small, white swampflower, radial with 5 petals and a yellow decoration marking the genitals. Two petals have been bitten.

Some aster flowers from Budapest, Hungary. We were exploring Margaret Island in Budapest right at the end of autumn, so the flowers are very nearly spent. November 2017

Thin, light purple petals radiate from a raised, yellow centre with long stamens.  There are many flowers, some with missing petals and some flower heads that are in the process of making seeds.  Behind is a blur of more flowers and green foliage.

Seeing a lot of #flowers in my timeline and it's a wonderful respite. Especially given the weather yesterday, and the fact we're heading into winter.

Perhaps I'll ease back into things with a few contributions to this beautiful #florespondence 💐

my many buds on the rose vines (yet to become an actual bush, but were working on it hehe)

and some blooming bittersweet nightshade

rose vines reaching outside of their plant cage. each vine has a tiny bulb forming at the end.
closer up and a different angle of the same rose plant, the focus is on one bulb to the right if the frame.
purple flower clusters like tear drops blooming at the end of nightshade vines crawling on a wooden fence.
more clusters of blooming purple flowers. their centers stick out and are bright yellow

A shrub spotted when out walking with Mom yesterday. No idea what this is, but what a showstopper!

#Florespondence #Plants #Gardening #Pink

A close picture of a shrub covered with pink flowers. The closed flowers are bright pink with a fancy bud that reminds me of a candy from my childhood. The open flowers appear more white inside, are hexagonal, and have dark pink markings.

Does anyone want any Phyllostachys nigra (Black Bamboo) seeds? I can pop them in the post to UK addresses. No guarantees but apparently it's rare for bamboo to flower so we might as well make the most of the seeds!

from the garden and beyond (the last flower was downtown)

so extremely excited to have Calla lilies 🥺


Tiny, delicate indigo blossoms that are a long tube shape, making them very friendly to hummingbirds. The plant has slender leaves that are reminiscent of rosemary.
Calla lilies! Beautiful white open cones of flowers with a center pistil. There is one open and several still curled up nearby. We can also see some various purple flowers besides the Calla lilies.
Huge domed flowers composed of many small purple blossoms and a darker cluster at the center.

@ct_bergstrom You “need” some of the tags Carl. #florespondence, #FlowerFriday and (one of my all time favourites) #bloomscrolling seem to be the most followed tags.

Lovely photos.

Apparently it's world bee day, so here is a photo of a bumble bee I took in Cologne in 2013 in the Rheinpark. I love how fluffy this bee's butt is.

I couldn't decide which photos of marionberry blossoms I liked the best, so I'm just going to post a bunch.

I'm entranced by the way twisty #BottleBrush filaments unfurl from their buds like coiled springs.
#BloomScrolling #Florespondence #Callistemon

Closeup of three bottlebrush flower spikes. At the tops of the spikes are buds in shades of green and cream. Lower on each spike, bright pink filaments radiate in the shape of  cylindrical brushes. Some buds are partly open, their pink filaments still tightly packed and just beginning to spiral outward; they look almost like rosebuds.

The first buds and blossoms on a bouncing new baby #BottleBrush bush (#Callistemon viminalis). The cheery pink "bristles" are actually #stamens rather than skinny petals ("Callistemon" means "beautiful stamen"). The pollen-bearing anthers add a bit of bling to the tips.

Looking down at a little bottlebrush shrub with smooth green leaves and flower spikes in various stages of opening, from green and cream-coloured buds to bright red and pink pompom-like brushes with starry yellow tips.

This tiny bee was so lost in the sauce (marionberry pollen) that it didn't care that I was stalking it.

Any guesses at identification are appreciated; I'm in Oregon.

A tiny black bee is brushing along the anthers of a marionberry flower.
It's moved up a little, and you can see its pollen-y legs more clearly.
An even better view of how dusted with white it is.
Its face is turned more towards the camera.

HELLO new #instance!! 👋

Quick #introduction - I am robyn, a hobbyist gardener in Alberta, Canada.* I practice short-season #gardening because I have to 😂

I love planting #vegetables in raised beds, as well as zone-hardy perennials.

I work in #tech by day, and am working towards a #horticulture certificate by night!! I just started the program and it is super exciting.

Nice to meet you all 😀

Australian native flowers often have a particular look. In the same way you can sometimes tell just by looking at them that a plant is from South Africa, or Europe, the same is sometimes true for Australia.

This is a Banksia (b. spinulosa), and you can see similarities with things like grevilleas, or callistemons (bottlebrush).

A chive flower in focus with other blurry ones on the background. It's a delicate light lavender puffball of a flower with slender petals that suck straight out.
A blue-purple lupine just starting to bloom at the base. It's a tall conical flower with many discrete blossoms, and leaves like many pointed stars.
