|1. My Facebook Friends (Thanks to YOU) identified this one as Chenille --with several names, the most common being "Love Lies Bleeding"; The 'official' name is Amaranthus.|
I will have an upcoming blog showing the Lilies and Lily Pads--but TODAY, I'm showing you some of the 'different' flowers we saw blooming this month. The flower above is one I love --but had no idea its name until some friends on Facebook told me.
SO---since many of you KNOW the names of flowers, hopefully you can help me with their names... I'll number the pictures --so that you can name them by the number for easy reference. BUT--even if you (like me) don't know all of the names, I hope you will just enjoy seeing the beauty.
|2. This little fuzzy yellow one was from a plant growing in the water. Another picture of this one is below. Name?|
|Pretty little yellow flowers in the water in the Italian Gardens. (See close-up above); Name?|
|3. Such a pretty border along the path in the Walled Garden; IMPATIENS (I think); I used to plant Impatiens in Summer --but rabbits kept eating it... Impatiens and Vinca are both such pretty annuals.|
|4. Such a pretty bush; Love the leafy colors; Name?|
|5. Another pretty purple flower --also growing in water in the Italian Gardens; Name?|
|6. Such a pretty and happy RED flower; Name?????|

|8. I couldn't get a close-up of this tiny white flower --growing in water at the Italian Gardens. BUT--it was so tiny --yet so full of beauty. Name?|

|10. Wonder if you have any idea what this cute little one is????????? Looks like a flying bird of some kind!!!!! ha ha .... TRULY, it's a kind of ORCHID.... Amazing, huh?|
|11. I know this one since I used to have the multi-colored COLEUS on the right. BUT--have you ever seen the scarlet red COLEUS????? It's so pretty in one's garden or yard...|
|12. Another beauty I have no idea what its name is.... Do you know?|
|13. I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this one... Isn't it gorgeous? Bet this one will make you smile for sure!!!!! NAME?|
Even if you don't know the names, I hope some of these made you smile today. As you can imagine, I will have many more pictures from our 8/4/16 trip to Biltmore to share...
