Blooming Friday- Perfect Pink Pouts

The Adenium is flowering pinkly now. It likes the heat and the lack of rain.
This Alpinia has put out its delicate, shell like pink flowers with yellow throars.

The Barbados lilies ate blooming profusely now. They can hardly be called pink, but I couldn't resist showing them.

These are the Pinks, or Dianthus as they are often called. They flower through the year. Cuttings taken from the plant easily germinate and make new plants, but I have found that the plants coming from the seeds give the most flowers.

The Nerium Oleander bush is covered with delicate pale pink flowers.

  1. Beautiful blooming! Especially love your Adenium. I also have one in my florida garden. Non-stopping bloomer for me!

  2. All very nice flowers! I have about 25 Adenium arabicum plants that I grew from seed. They're about 8 months now and I'm hoping they flower this summer.

  3. I prefer the Nerium. How beautiful! Have a nice week!

  4. Hello Lotusleaf

    your Barbados amaryllis are stunning! Mine are flowering as well but nowhere as beautiful as yours. Of course my blooming Friday is white, I only realized after posting and visiting other blogs that the theme was pink. Have a great weekend!

  5. All your flowers are beautiful and so colourful. I do like Oleander especially the colours that are fragrant.

  6. I love pinks and oranges together! Your blooms are bountiful and beautiful Lotusleaf!

  15. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it
    to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear."
    She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell
