Today's Flowers Post

These lovely, dainty flowers were growing along side a path at the Oregon Zoo. Sorry don't know their name.

It is a seedum or the leaves look like it. Very showy this time of year.

I have my flower up at Canon Pixels. I hope you can see it if you have the time.

Wild flower always beautiful indeed.

Leora said...

Lovely, all that pink. I see Abraham Lincoln thinks it's a sedum; the leaves give one a clue, and they do look a bit sedum-like.

Hi, so much beauty in front of the name is the least important. I thank you for sharing.
hugs, Denise

Ha! I dont know their name, but they were in the bouquet my mother gave me last week. They last longer than the other flowers, they are really fresh after a week, and they go together extremely well with many other colours and flowers!
They are GREAT!
Thanks for posting!
:)
Have a nice week!

Maria said...

Ah, yes, they are on my last post too!
Seem to be real autumn flowers!
Here's my mother's bouquet where they really dominate the whole thing! Have a nice week and thanks for your visit!

Darlene: Definetly a Sedum with a red bloom, mine are a little more purple and there are hundereds of different types. Look it up on Google some day.

In the Philippines we call it "Katakataka," which means "wonder" or "puzzling," something to that effect because there are roots in the leaves! =)

My flower for today is posted here. Please take a look if you have time. Have a great week ahead!

Very pretty pink flowers, and nice photos.

They are SEDUM flowers..
Sedum is the large stonecrop genus of the Crassulaceae, representing about 400 species of leaf succulents, found throughout the northern hemisphere.

Lovely pictures..I have the sedum in my garden as well and bees & other insects love them too.

Such a lovely collection--of sedum. I can't get enough of their soft pink color this year either.

mirage2g said...

Red WIl has the same flowers, he said they are sedum or stonecrap...and true, the roots grow on the leaves right? They are good as cough medication...

Tommy v said...

beautiful flowers

PERBS said...

Just a short return visit -- thanks for stopping by. I have the exact same camera you do -- an Olympus C-700 digital camera. I want to get a new one with more pixels but I want an Olympus and the one I saw and liked has only 5 zoom instead of 10 like ours. . . so thinking about it. I sure have enjoyed it the last almost 6 years.

Again, thanks for stopping by and yes we are close since I am just across the river. Ü

Craver Vii said...

They're the funniest flowers. If you zoom way up close, you'll see that they look very much like cow udders. :-)

Reader Wil said...

Thanks for your visit! You see: we have the same flowers! Funny that the sedum is doing so well this year. I cannot remember that it was blooming so exuberantly last year! Have a nice week!

Gypsy at heart said...

Lovely pink color and host of miniature blossoms. Lovely shot.

Autumn Joy, a type of Sedum. Great photograph of it.

marina said...

So sweet, like a bouquet!

Barb said...

Yes, leedra is right... Autumn Joy from the Sedum Family. Here in PA, it's nickname is 'live forever'! I never knew about roots growing in it's leaves, guess that explains why a piece broken off, will grow anywhere! (Hence, the name 'live forever'??) B;-)

How very beautiful.
