I am going to begin 2016 with a brand new blog.  

My reason for starting anew is that it was taking too long for some to load up and make comments.  As I started it in 2008 and it was very photo heavy, I thought it kinder, and hopefully easier for all, to start 2016 with the sweep of a new broom.  

Please let me know what you think of the new background, and any constructive comments will be welcomed and considered.  I am using the largest text to make it easier for people to read. 

My old blog is now closed.

My next entry here will be the Today's Flowers meme on January 1st, 2016.  

Here's to happy new beginnings for all of us.

Thank you for your interest in Today's Flowers.

Today's Flowers opens on Friday at 12.00 a.m. and will close the following Thursday at 11.55 p.m.  You can add your photographs all week.  Everyone is very welcome to share their flowers, or just to stop by for a visit.  Thank you to those who leave comments, which are always read and appreciated.

For your convenience, if you would like me to send you an e-mail when each new link opens, you can leave your address with

If for some reason the link does not open on time and I am not able to fix the problem straight away, please leave your link in the comment section.  But only if there is no link available. 

If you have trouble adding your photo even when it is open, you can send me your entry, along with your blog address please, and with "Today's Flowers" in the subject line, to the e-mail address above.  This e-mail can also be used if you want to get in touch with me with any advice or concerns.  Thank you very much!
