Flowers for Friday

Dianthus - pinks in different shades

This week I’ve chosen Dianthus for my Flowers for Friday, or Pinks as I usually call them.

I grew these flowers in my yard a couple of years ago. I remember it was a hot, dry summer and everything was looking parched and bedraggled. Daily rounds with the watering can were to no avail. But then after a week of August rain, all of my yard flowers produced another flourish of blooms just before Autumn.

I do love nature’s way of gifting us in our gardening endeavours, especially when we are beginning to feel that the efforts we have put in have been in vain.
