I love the way these little pink pillowy buds open up into crinkly yellow flowers.

  15. Lantana is the go to flower here in Florida. I have several areas in my backyard gardens where it is planted…plus in the front. Butterflies love it and it comes back strong every year!!! Great close up! Thanks for stopping by and saying hello…I love to hear what other people are thinking.

  18. I have one of this type. We put wire around it. So now, the deer can’t ‘trim’ it for us. So now, we get to enjoy it.
    Lovely shot.

    I’ve always wanted some Lantana, but don’t know if it could grow out here.

  31. Beautiful, Pat! Lantana blooms are so fascinating — they have so many little features at different stages of their development! I didn’t realize how interesting they were until we had a digital camera and I was able to take macro pics!! 🙂
