From Baguio City

Today's Flowers

Flowers

When I last went to Baguio City with my sister last March, I really made it a point to take pictures of as much flowers as I can. I only had my cell phone that time -- I still don't own a digital camera back then -- so even if there are lots of flowers all over, I can only take about 2-3 pictures of each flowers. I am not sure if I can call it a blessing, but there wasn't really that much flowers all over the city, their Panagbenga Flower Festival just ended, and the plants were like starting over again. It was just March, and for sure come April and May the city will once again be wrapped with so many flowering plants.

This is another nameless flower. I don't know the name of this, but I find it really beautiful. If I can just pull it out and plant in our garden, I will. But of course, it's not allowed, and it will be very rude of me to do that. This was taken along the Burnham Park, while sister and I were relaxing after our breakfast.

Perhaps cleome? It has the spear-like leaves of cleome.

These flowers are "dianthus" and, if I remember correctly, have a smell like the spice, cloves. Very nice photos.

These are just beautiful! I agree with everyone else who mentioned that they are a type of dianthus, probably Sweet Williams -- one of my favorite flowers.

I found out that Sweet Williams are very easy to grow, but only flower the second year. But then they flower for a long, long time. Beautiful shot.

Beautiful photos of 'dianthus barbatus'. The name in Finnish is 'harjaneilikka'. :)

Nice shots. I've only seen these very small. I had no idea they could grow like that.
