Today's Flowers

Here are a few flower photos I took during my vacation in Savannah, GA. The first one is a planter with Swiss Chard growing inside (Thank you to everyone who let me know that it is Swiss Chard and not beets)! Surprisingly, I saw quite a bit of it: some had parsley growing.

The other two photos are of several trees in bloom. For more flower power, check out Today's Flowers.

That looks like Swiss chard in the planter -- related to the beet. It's very photogenic!

It seems so early for tree flowers. That sure is a beautiful pink.

Love the pink one. Great show of pinks with gray. The one on left reminds me of chard.

The first one is Ruby Chard, both decorative and delicious.

That first photo of the chard is very pretty.

I agree that it is swiss chard. I have seen it in a couple of gardens before. Colourful, and very different from the usual stuff in planters. I did not know it was edible, though. Looking out the windows here, it is hard to beleive that anything could be blooming anywhere, but you are so far south, I suppose it could be.

Very unusual pot of Swiss chard. I would never think of growing something like that in a decorative pot so thanks for showing us.

I love the pink flowers and the planter in the first shot is so unique. I like your jewelry too!

Chard is amazingly colorful and wonderful with the purple flowers. And those pink flowers in the last photo, so sweet.
