Pretty Pinks

Good morning folks!  I hope you're all doing well.  I'm still at it- working my full time job and trying to get as much done as possible in my back yard before the heat of summer sets in.  When summer arrives, I'm basically done in the yard.  I'll water and deadhead my flowers and that's about it.  The intense southern heat zaps all the energy from this old gal- after a few minutes of working in it, I become limp and useless.

Have you done any spring planting yet?  I thought I'd share a few shots of the pink ones I've planted, since I have several of them...

Pink creeping phlox
Goldflame honeysuckle
New guinea impatiens
Pink caladiums
I love the wavy foliage of these
Some of my favorite among caladiums
Pink and red ones
These are more of a traditional variety of caladiums
A favorite of Mr. Garden Fly

Thank you for visiting.  I wish you a wonderful week ahead.

  4. Susan, you've got some beautiful flowers! The caladiums are particularly pretty. Love the insect you captured in the last image. I'm with you on the heat. After May you will not see me doing very much outside at all.
