I'm a neophyte when it comes to gardening but I like to know what flower is that? It has pretty pink blooms

I love it when it rains and everything in the garden seems refreshed.

Nice - I used to have a rubber plant, but it never flowered.

I've replied on my blog to your question, but of course I have no objection to you writing a poem about my photo - fantastic!

What pretty pink flowers! It certainly looks very perky after that rain shower.

I want to be good with plants, but I am just not. I can get easily distracted and forget about watering them! That is why children and pets who can make their needs known work better for me!

I love plants like the one with pink blooms because the leaves are so thick and shiny. They definitely say tropical, unlike anything around here.

WOW..they look so very healthy. It's starting to get cool at night here so the potted plants will have to be taken in soon.

So pretty! We could have used more rain this past summer. My pumpkins had a few flowers, but not enough to actually get a pumpkin.

They do look so vibrant!

Oh, I love plants, and the greener the better! I don't have a green thumb, sadly....but I love enjoying what others create. Thanks for sharing.

Very pretty. After the rain is always a good time for photos too. We've had enough rain this year to keep the flowers blooming which keeps me happy!

Ah, lovely greenery! :)

Lisa said...

Very nice! I've got all north/south windows, so plants don't thrive here.

Those look great! I have some indoor plants right now (basil) and couldn't figure out why some leaves were withering. Turns out my cat likes to chomp on it.

Alyce, we Hindus worship the Basil plant. No Hindu home is complete without one..

Bev Hankins said...

Very lovely! The greens are quite vivid.

Beautiful. We need some of that rain!

Vicki said...

Beautiful! I love when it rains and you don't have to water anything. Luckily we have a rainy season instead of a snow season!

I am so not a gardener, things tend to die under my care, but I LOVE to have a garden that looks wonderful. Not a great combination :-)

Staci said...

I love it when they get that deep dark green....lovely!

Mary said...

The plant looks so sturdy and the flower, so delicate.
