Starting with a small blossom they grow into beautiful flowers. Hydrangeas or hortensias have been a part of my life since I was a little girl. My cousins grew them in the garden and their beautiful color, shape and size amazed me every time I came to visit.

Perfect pansies

Valentine's Day in Brazil is June 12th and for Today's Flowers I am adding these pansies, because the Portuguese word for pansy is literally "perfect love" (amor perfeito).

We have different stories, and no matter how simple or elaborate, may love and joy grow more each day in our lives...

Please visit Today's Flowers to see more perfect flowers blooming around the world.

Tiny and naturally fragrant. Lavender flowers... these are not from my garden, not yet. I have a pot of lavender growing in my balcony and I found out the plant started to look better when I moved the pot under a glass table that has my other plants.

Can anyone tell me what type of lavender is pictured here? English, French, Spanish, none of them? Thank you.
