@samanthasdiary_ – My photo journal of things I love, in particular my garden in sunny Australia.

@saragasbarra – Autumn bean pickin' in all shades of pink. The color of painted lady runner beans is pretty rad. 

@tiragreene – Foxtail palm and bougainvillea, blue sky. No filter.

@tropical_gardener – Bougainvillea or "Puti tai nobio" is the island of Guahan state flower. The name Puti tai nobio loosely translates to “it hurts not to have a sweetheart.” 

@trowelandtrellis – Seed heads of ornamental grass backlit by the late afternoon sun.

@vikki_barnette – In the 20 plus years this Crepe Myrtle tree has been in the yard I don't recall it ever having such golden colored leaves.

    I'm not particularly savvy about Instagram (oops, my age is showing) but I not only enjoyed these featured pictures but if you click on the person's name, you get taken to their page showing lots more of their photos. Since it's a rainy day for me here in east TN, I've clicked and toured. @trowelandtrellis has lots of positively drool worthy pictures and if you click on the picture itself, he identifies the plant(s) being featured.

    What great pictures. I'm a newby to Instagram and don't have many garden shots posted, however, I was so surprised to see the picture of my backyard Crepe Myrtle is being shared today. Thanks Fine Gardening!

      Yours is a beautifully mature crepe myrtle, VikkiB. I love how gracefully limbed up it is. What color are its blooms?

        Thanks for your comment. The name is Natchez. It blooms white.
