Valentine Roses of a Different Kind


In the flower world, many times a pink flower will be identified as "rose" and while we think of Valentine's Day as all about red, pink is lovely, too. On this rosy sweet day, let's look at what is pink at Our Little Acre (in warmer days, of course).


Dahlia 'Hawaii'


Caladium


Alstroemeria 'Zavina'


Oxalis


Zinnia


Gazania


Bougainvillea 'Imperial Garden'


Dianthus 'Bouquet Pink Magic'


Echinacea 'Pink Double Delight'


Tiarella 'Spring Symphony'


Columbine


Weigela 'Variegata'


Rosa 'Kordes Perfecta'


Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentines Day to you too Kylee. I was wondering if that Oxalisis is a houseplant or grown in your garden as a perennial??
I like your new signature.

Brianna said...

Impressive photos! I love the pink echinacea. And the columbine, too--I really dig macro shots.

Tracey said...

Hi Kylee,

Oh, my! What a treat! Love that your camera is stuck in macro mode.

Thanks for visiting LISH. A Wardian Case bought at Longwood? Gasp, gasp, gasp.

Happy Valentine's Day Kylee!

I love your Bougainvillea 'Imperial Palace' - it is gorgeous. The Echinacea 'PDD' looks wonderful in this photograph. The play of light on the bloom is beautfiul.

And then there's the Dahlia, Gazania and Zinnia that remind me of a hot summer day. I shouldn't forget the Pink though - it would probably win me completely over with its scent.

You are definitely "in the pink" for Valentine's Day. Hope you had a good day.

Ah, we can always count on you for some warming, brightening colours to chase away the dull drabs of winter. Suddenly, spring doesn't feel SO far away....Happy (slightly belated, but it's still the 14th in Ohio) Hearts to you and Romie and the catchildren too!

Shady Gardener said...

Happy Valentine's Day, Kylee! Your flowers are gorgeous. I really like having tiarellas in my shady spots. I'd not seen Spring Symphany! It's a beauty! You're being very inspiring! :-)

I love all of your pink blooms, especially the last picture of the rose.

Robin said...

Oh, how I long for greens and pinks and yellows in real life. Your photos remind me a little of what it is like to feel warm.

Meems said...

kylee: Happy V-day to you, too (a day late). Are your caladiums growing now? And are those Florida Sweethearts? And pink bouganvillea-what a treat!

All your pinks were fun to peruse.

I'm in love with these plants! They all have amazing color, details, and textures. I'm drolling over the Bougainvillea Imperial Garden. I have never seen that hear and this is the second blog that someone has posted it. The gazania is wonderful. I love the pattern that it makes and the small hints of yellow on the edges of the petals. The Dahlia Hawaii is so gorgeous great color and so many petals. Love caladium, normally I like the pale pink but this really pops against the wood board. That Zinnia is a fantastic mix of colors. I would die to get that zinnia. If you know what variety or the name of it do tell! I'll stop now I could just go on and on.

Is that Zavina a common or hybrid name for the picture you have of Alstroemeria? I think I have a picture of the same kind and going through an identification process of the blooms in my neighborhood. Thanks for you assistance.
