Today's Flowers are from Queensland, Australia.

The Cooktown Orchid is the top flower of these purple flowers. All these flowers grow in my daughter's garden

The big orange flower is the African Tulip. These trees have become a weed, especially along waterways near Cairns, but they are so beautiful!!!
