Pink Thoughts in a Pink Shade

Since the year-end list making time is upon us, I thought I'd avoid books and films in favour of flowers. Pink ones. All from, or near, our garden.

So, in order of appearance (I shouldn't have centered them. Sorry about that.): Tabibia, Balsam, what I used to think of as Periwinkle but now I know it isn't, Bauhunia, I don't know, Bougainvillea, ditto, a variety of Hibiscus that turns pink(er) as evening comes, Geranium, Tabibia (close up), Roses, Bougainvillea, Coleus, Frangipani, Rose, Tacoma, something with pink leaves, Coleus, Anthurium, Penta, Rose, Hibiscus, that thorny cactus like plant but hybridised for bigger flowers, Hibiscus, more pink leaves, Bouganvillea, a kind of Orchid, Impatiens, Bouganivillea.

Phew!

Oh - click for larger image.

Update: I find that it's tabibuia and tecoma. Who knew I had to have a Telugu accent to say the names of (some) flowers?

What a privilege- having a garden with such lovely flowers and plants!
Beautiful pictures. Thanks for sharing them:)

You should have added "Falstaff, please take note". The boy has no excuse now not to not be able to identify flowers.

Nice pics.

??!: Sure I do. What if they aren't pink? Also, you don't seriously expect me to remember all this for the next four months - which is how long it will be before we get to see flowers in Philly again.

Space Bar said...

Sur: And to you too!

Dipali: My pleasure. :D

??!: Falstaff won't see most of these flowers in Philly even four months down the line. Did no one teach you geography?!

Falstaff: No, no. Stick with the accidentally-on-purpose bunch of random flowers. Life should have a few such surprises.

Good education - your blog is, always.

Always thought of Frangipane as pastry. And Tacoma is more than just another pickup truck. Ah well.

Lovely garden. Am assuming you have some taking care of it.

bm: Frangipani with an 'i' magically turns it into a flower. And tacoma...my bad. it should be 'tecoma'!

??! said...

eh...I cook. Who has time for geography?

Space Bar said...

??!: there there! i have some recipes for stuff using flower petals. will send.

We like. Except we are too lazy to grow anything ourselves.

Space Bar said...
