Today's Flowers

 
 
 
 


I found this flower in Yungaberra, Tablelands, Queensland, Australia. I don't know what it's called. We had rented a caravan in Lake Eacham Caravan Park. There were lots of other pretty bushes and trees, harbouring lovely birds.

This is so unusual! I can't even guess what it is! But I love its striking beauty! It does remind me of a tiger lily in colour but the shape is quite different!

The first image looks like a mininature Tiffany lampshade! I love the 'veins' in the last image.
It is gorgeous - thanks for sharing it's beauty.

Isn't it unusual! What interesting colouring it has. It does look like a miniture Tiffany as Carletta mentioned.

WOW! What beautiful images of this flower!

"Louis" likes Carletta's comparison of it to a Tiffany lampshade.

Wil: What a beautiful contribution to Today's Flowers. I agree the colors do have the Tiffany look only designed by God.

There has to be a bigger word than exotic for these beauties. . .simply gorgeous!
My daughter is wanting to visit Australia so I'm sending her your link, if that's o.k.
Hope your week is lovely!

Wow, I have never seen a flower like this before. That's the fun of traveling all over the world and "Today's Flowers" is a great way of doing that. Thanks Luiz!

Reader Wil your photos are wonderful and thank you for introducing me to such an unusual bloom.

I remember having seen this flower, here in Brazil, when I was a boy. But I do not remember her name.

This looks to me like an abutilon Wil - possibly 'abutilon vesuvius' but I'm not positive. Whatever it is it is stunning. Beautiful photos of it!
