Shades of Pink

Pink Saturday is a perfect opportunity to share the flowers blooming at my home in varied shades of pink.

The Rose of Sharon bush is loaded with buds.
This variety is named Rose Satin Althea and it started its display of dramatic flowers this week.  Lots more buds still to open. 



With it's ruffled petals curling toward the center,
this flower looks like a five-pointed star.


This is the first year that I have planted New Guinea Impatiens.  They seem happy with the shady location near the front porch.  This variety has large flowers and is named Super Sonic Pink.


Although my Zinnia plants have a multitude of colors,
today I will showcase the pink flowers
with their cheery yellow centers.


The bees are certainly attracted to the sweet nectar of the Zinnias.


Stop over and share your PINK with
Pink Saturday at How Sweet the Sound

Until next time, live and love well.

We planted two Rose of Sharon bushes. Both are doing quite well this year with all the rain we have had. We also have the same pink one you display. Love it.

This one really caught my eye---she's just stunning in her perfect coloring and shape. We have about a hundred, all "come up volunteer" over the years from two which were here when we bought the house.

The colors vary from maroon to pure white (all with purple throats or tips), and a gift of a double-double two years ago is still blooming her heart out, in an uncanny version of a perfect pink layers-of-tulle prom dress.

You can tell I love these things---this one has been my picture ever since I started posting in 2008.

I love all your pinks. The Rose of Sharon is beautiful. I reminds me of a hybiscus plant. Thank you so much for sharing!
