Dipladenia / Today's Flowers

Blossoms in a hanging basket I saw last summer in Port Perry, Ontario

This was a hanging basket I would have liked to have hanging from my porch.  It was a beauty.

Thank you for the correction, Xavi! It's a Dipladenia  or mandevilla!

Your colours are so vibrant, I bet they glow in the dark.

Mine look like spring because that is just what we are in the middle of.

Gorgeous colours - I'd love to have a basket full of these :-)

I'm not sure I'm familiared with these but they are beautiful and so is the mosaic.

By the way, it was a very expensive swan and the photo cost me a fortune! :-)))

Hey there!

I have never been a fan of flowers but having them around is not such a bad thing after all. I like how you captured the beauty! Now they're not just flowers in a basket anymore! :)

Lovely mosaic and flowers. I would like to have these hanging on my deck, maybe next summer.

Exquisite!!! I always loved this vine and wished it grew here. When I worked at the Nursery we had one growing way up in the rafters in the greenhouse.
Mandevilla, formally know as....
Sorta like Prince. LOL MB

Beautiful - I do miss having hanging baskets (in our traveling lifestyle). I'm always impressed when people know the actual names of exotic flowers. I'm a lazy flower lover.

I like the hanging basket idea. Sort of. Doesn't water and dirt drip down out of a hanging basket?

Maybe if you put gorgeous dipladenias in the basket you don't care? ;-)
