I always think of one of my first blogging buddies Eve when I see this flower. She hosted Sunny Side Up. She took the lovliest photos. Eve told me it was a Cleome. It took a few times for it to sink in, but she was always there to remind me, and after a while, I never forgot. Thank you Eve! I hope life is happy in your world. You often pop into my thoughts.

A lovely dark pink Cosmos Flower
Today's Flowers was originally created by Luiz Santilli, Jr. Thank you Luiz! I am now its host.
An orange lily, not quite sure of its name. I keep going back and forth between a Trout Lily and a Turk's Cap Lily. What I love are those twirly, candy-stripe buds before they unfurl. No, it doesn't take much to keep me entertained!
I am also linking with the following memes as they become available, with my thanks to our hosts. Please click on their names to visit other participants.
