Beautiful flowers. Priya's drawings are really wonderful.

I have some photographs of flowers, that I am unable to identify. Can someone here help me with these? I can send the links, or mail them.

Sigma - Thanks for your comments.

I saw some of the wildflowers in your blog. Sometimes it's tricky to identify these flowers because they look so similar to some others. The leaves can be a good sign to identify.

U was hard - I couldn't think of anything! Well done - Priya and Sree.

Thanks for keeping this going, Sree and Priya! The two of you are just way too talented.

My excuse is that I was on vacation. I have one for V though! Yay!
