Green Thumb Sunday 08/12/07

I once again cannot name this flower. I think it is pretty interesting though and hope to figure out what exactly it is.

You might not have noticed the banner at the top of the page and the scoreboard on the right sidebar. That is for my August contest. I am giving away a Flickr or Zooomr Pro account (winner’s choice). I encourage you to step up to the challenge as it will be a fun contest. And it can help to drive readers to your blogs as well.

As always all comments will receive replies as well as return visits. I appreciate everyone who stops here each Sunday. You guys are awesome. I love the comments and the knowledge that everyone shares.

    That is one weird looking flower. I can’t decide if I like it or not.

    Could it be a Chleome? Happy GTS

    Hi Drew,
    Carn’t help you on this one, nicely done though, it never ceases to amaze me the patterns flowers make.

    Cheers Mark

    Lisa,
    I thought it looked pretty interesting so those types of flowers get my notice and I photograph them.

  5. Drew says:

    Ruth,
    I’m not sure I will have to look that one up. Thanks for the help.

  6. Drew says:

    Hi Mark,
    Thai one had one of the more interesting patterns that I have ever seen.

    Really interesting flower. I’m no help unless its a wildflower. Submit to flower submissions group on flickr. Of course you have the time to search for such a group, I know you do!

    PS I put your PAD badge on my pad blog.

  8. jean says:

    I agree with Ruth. I’m sure it is a chloeme or spider plant. They are really pretty when they are fully open. They are annual but will usually reseed under the right conditions. Great photo. Get another shot when it’s open.

  9. Sara says:

    Whatever this flower is it is certainly pretty and it has a delicate look about it.

    Beautiful flower and photo. I just love pink flowers!

  11. webfetti says:

    Man, that’s gorgeous! Great pic!

  12. Cleome or spider flower … lovely photo.

  13. Christine says:

    I don’t know what it is, but I think it’s one cool looking flower!

  14. We also think that your flower is chloeme. Great photo.

  15. Drew says:

    Meeyauw, thanks for adding PAD to your PAD blog, that is very cool. I will have to look into that group.

  16. Drew says:

    Jean, I’ll have to swing back by the office and see if it is open yet. But I don’t really want to go to the doctor’s anytime soon. :-)

  17. Drew says:

    Hi Sara,
    I thought that it was a very interesting flower and so different than any other I had seen in New England.

  18. Drew says:

    Beth,
    Thank you very much. I’m not always a fan of pink but on the this flower it certainly fits.

  19. Drew says:

    Hi webfetti, thanks for stopping by and commenting. Glad you liked the photo.

  20. Drew says:

    Thanks for the help with the id. I thought the flower had some spider-like qualities, that is probably what drew me to it.

  21. Drew says:

    Hi Christine, it certainly is a different looking flower. That is for sure.

  22. Drew says:

    Thanks Chris and Laurie. I knew that having all these green thumb friends would pay off in identifying the flowers that to me are just pretty. I should invest some time learning a bit shouldn’t I?

  23. Kylee says:

    Pretty picture of a cleome! I plant them from seed every year, but with our hot, dry summer, this year they’ve not done well. :-(

  24. Ladynred says:

    I haven’t seen that flower before. Looks interesting and pretty.

  25. Aiyana says:

    That is an interesting flower. I see that someone has identified it, so I’ll have to check it out. I do like it–and can see why it is called the spider flower.

  26. Drew says:

    Hi Kylee,
    I think that next year I may ask my sistre to try and plant one, it is very pretty. Good luck with your next season.

  27. Drew says:

    Ladynred,
    I had not seen it before either. Glad you liked it enough to drop in and leave a note. Welcome and thanks.

  28. Drew says:

    Aiyana,
    I should be better about checking these before I post but I love the feedback from everyone letting me know what it is I have taken a photo of.
