Fall Flowers in Texas

I took some quick photos of the flowers still blooming vigorously in my yard.  So I'm linking in with A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday.  Thanks for hosting!

Red Lantana

Flame Acanthus

Orange Esperanza

Pride of Barbados

Turks Cap (note the red roses and the purple lantana as well)

We had enough rain to make the flowers come alive again.  It's about 85 degrees and a sunny day.

Happy Hump Day!

Boy, it is sure warm there still. Actually it was in the 70's near Chicago today but the wind kicked up in the afternoon and the clouds rolled in late in the day so no telling what the weather will bring us tomorrow. Your flowers are lovely. Thanks for sharing. Happy Halloween!

The flowers and their names are beautiful. Thank you for sharing your wonderful photos.

It's getting very cold where I live, and we need a heater at night.

Thank you for this bright and colourful post. OK girlie, it isn't sunny here or warm. We are still in a wet front from that hurricane that passed through and the rain keeps going round and round in circles. WE had a couple of hours sunshine yesterday before the clouds moved back in and downpoured - you cannot imagine how much pre-winter yard work I got done in those two hours. ha,ha

Lovely flowers in your garden! I think I like the Pride of Barbados best!

I love the bright colors.

We had cool temps, then it warmed up a bit.
It is suppose to rain today and be at record low temps this weekend.

Enjoy!

These are gorgeous! You have identified a flower I took a photo of years ago. Pride of Barbados. Thank you :)

Mike said...

Great colors.

Gorgeous flowers! So funny how different parts of the same country can have such varied weather. We may have flurries on Friday. I'd much rather have flowers! I love the esperanza.

Thank you for leaving such kind comments on my blog. I'm not visiting around as much as I normally would, but hopefully once the wedding has come off without a hitch I will get back into a better blog reading routine : )

So pretty. It's 84 here. It's supposed to be chilly this weekend, which means a high of 70. I think 70 feels good.

Love,
Janie

Beautiful! We really do have some fall color in Texas. It's just different! The weather is perfect, but rain is much needed.

Great shots. Your yard must beautiful. I always find Lantana interesting. In the house I grew up in it was growing wild. My parents never planted it. My mother called it a weed.
Thanks for coming by and visiting!

Lady Lilith said...

Nice. It must be stunning to stroll down your yard with these images.
