Lovely composition, I am trying to learn flowers names, but I'm still so ignorant that I don't know this. Hope somebody will help...

How very pretty. Nice color. Love the open flower among buds. Maybe all different. The leaves look like some sort of succulent.

Nice colour! Looks like this one will be with you for a while. Worth every penny you paid. ;-)

I love Publix.

Beautiful! What kind is it?

Jacob said...

@ Jarat - I have no clue. I was hoping you would tell me!

Don and Krise said...

Or....This bud's for you! Nice clear shot Jacob.

Hi Jacob,

Beautiful flowers.
I wonder if it is some kind of hybrid rose?

Best regards

Dunno! Hope someone knows the answer. Looks lovely, though.

Beautiful!

Rambling Round said...

The leaves sort of look like begonia, but I don't know. Love the color.

Been out of town and playing catch up. You always surprise me with churches during the week. The Mt. Zion one that is painted such a stark white and then the grocery store flowers both capture my heart. The grocery store flowers reminds me of a story. During my teen years, I would go to Hallmark with my friend and say, "Here, this is the card I would give you if I were to buy one." Then, we would politely return the card to its original spot! Good for us; bad for Hallmark. We "traded" cards this way for years! Love the way you"borrow" the flowers. I guess all photography is like that, in a sense.

Beautiful Kalanchoe! I have a full bloom on my 'Piece of nature at home' blog :-)

Jacob said...

Thanks JM - I had no idea what this was. A Kalanchoe! Hmmm. You sure a smart person!

Meri said...

I used to grow these. Why did I stop?

Kcalpesh said...

Beautiful! Would be even more beautiful when all of the buds have blossomed.... :-)
