For today’s post, I am sharing a couple of Pink Saturday special pictures for May Day…first, only in Texas and parts out West…Cactus Flowers.
I waited until too late in the day to snap their pictures and most of them had closed for the night, but aren’t they pretty? and a more traditionally May Day flower…
Deep pink shrub roses…I have no idea what kind they are…I dug the plant at my Great-aunt Tanta Frieda’s house after she had passed away. I made cuttings and now have about three dozen of these beauties. They bloom all summer and last until the dead of winter. But they are most prolific in early spring and late fall. And now the perfect little pink sweetheart rose, also a cutting. This one came from Mother’s garden…she called it China Doll…cute, but full of thorns. Keep her in your prayers as she struggles back from a stroke earlier this week. She is making remarkable progress at regaining skills, but still has a way to go. She is a remarkable woman and until her early 80’s was a great gardener.
I have about a dozen of these little cuties that came from cuttings. Well, Happy May Day…Have a Pink Week. Stop in to say “Hi” to Beverly at How Sweet the Sound. She has today’s list of Pink Saturday participants.
