Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night. (Rainer Maria Rilke)

I Think I Really Like Pink!

You've most likely guessed that this post will be about pink flowers in my garden.

And that's because I really, really, really like pink in the garden.  I adore this hot pink bougainvillea.  And I love the lighter pink in the previous photo as well.

Some of the Impatiens that are blooming around the yard are pink.

And the Anthuriums are - that's right - pink!

Can't forget the Pentas, they are a vibrant pink!

There's a few blooms on the Butterfly Bush - not very many, but they're vibrant pink too.

The Ti plants in the front garden are always lush shades of pink.  I love them against the different colors of green - especially the lime green.  

This is my new Ivy Geranium.  

She recently opened and I'm completely in love with this deep pink!

I have several more Ivy Geraniums around of different colors.

They're one of my favorite flowers.  They drape so beautifully and are happy to bloom consistently.  

These little petunias are reliable bloomers too.

This is how my Bleeding Heart vine looked when I bought her a couple of years ago.

Unfortunately, this is how she looks today.  I had to move it and ended up cutting it way back.  It shot right back up, and I hope with the coming warmer weather, she will be blooming again soon.

I've got a few other regular geraniums showing off their stuff.

Now don't roll your eyes at my hippy ways, but I'm sending lots of pink colored love to this poor little palm tree that has so many woodpecker holes in it, the sap is flowing right out of it.  

I love the woodpeckers too...and they're just doing what woodpeckers do.  

Here's some actual pink birds.  These pretty Flamingos live down the road a few miles.  

And here's a pink shell I found at the beach one day.  I would say it's about time I wrap this up as I've run out of pink flowers and have headed off into other pink things...

I hope you have a pink-filled super sparkly day!

Hi Janice! I was in a goofy mood writing that post I think, haha! I like every other color in the garden too - I think the next post will be on blues and purples. I'm happy you had a look! And thank you for your lovely comment! You could do a blog on your gorgeous flowers!
