Dicentra Spectabilis - Pink Bleeding Heart. I really love this flower - it LOOKS delicate, but can withstand harsh weather with ease. Just like all the strong women I've met who are dealing with breast cancer! Lovey dubby

I know this echinacea is supposed to be purple, but in our soil it shows up more pink-lavender. The bees don't seem to care! Whistling

A pretty mandevilla blossom brightens up the inside of the fence.

New one blooming just today... Amaryllis 'Princess'

Looks a bit red on my monitor, but it's a bright deep pink, lots of different shading across the white petals, double bloom with a picotee edge... can you tell it's a new favorite? LOL My favorite flower is usually whichever one is currently in bloom!

This basket of oxalis has been giving me sweet little pink blooms all winter. It's happy to be inside the warm house!

Another recent bloom... this one from my 'Peppermint Rose' scented geranium.

All those blooms are lovely, Jill! Love the variegated leaves of the oxalis (do you know the name?) and the markings on the geranium bloom. And the picotee on the amaryllis just adds the perfect finishing touch, don't you think? Thumbs up

This hyacinth had a name, but I don't remember it now. Confused

I wonder if the hyacinth might be 'Fondant'? I had that one last spring, loved the deeper pink down the center of the petals. I think the oxalis with the silvery markings and pink-lavender blooms is 'Fanny'.

How about a hot pink Christmas cactus?

This delicate pink one bloomed recently from a cutting that I got last year.

and this one is "just peachy!"

Thanks for the name of the oxalis - that's really pretty.

Love all the colors of the cacti! I got one from good friends when I had my mastectomy/reconstruction surgery in 1999, so it was very special to me. It finally gave up the ghost this year, but I have 3 offspring from it that are thriving. It was really a Thanksgiving Cactus, and will boom again sporadically throughout the year, but the biggest flush of blooms is right around Thanksgiving. It's a plain hot pink that doesn't really photograph well. It's got one flower going now, so I'll give it a try tomorrow to see if I can capture it.

Till then, here are some pretty soft pink cherry blossoms, down by the Tidal Basin.

Here are some pretty peach blossoms! Even though the tree is struggling, it puts out lovely pink blooms in the spring.

Not much pink in my garden in the past but this year when I ordered seeds I found myself gravitating to pink. Hoping to grow some pink geraniums and petunias. Thumbs up

Some pretty soft pink tulips at Longwood Gardens. I'm looking forward to going there again next month! The Conservatory is a delightful place to spend a late winter afternoon! Lovey dubby

oooh, very lovely!

Here's a beauty I had a few years back... pink in its leaves as well as its blooms!
