Pretty in Pink




Hibiscus and oleanders are very popular with Phoenix gardeners. When I see a hibiscus I'm tempted to cut it and put it behind my ear and pretend I'm on a tropical island. Oleanders can be found in nearly every yard and many people use them to hide the ugly concrete walls that are so prevalent here. They don't seem to care if they get watered or not regardless of how hot it may be. Both of these pretties were in my front yard at my old house.

Welcome to your first Pink Saturday, Marianne. I am so glad you joined us, and I hope you will continue. I know you will enjoy visiting the other participants. When you visit, invite them back to visit you. We have the nicest participants in the world.

I grew up in south Florida which is another place of hibiscus and oleander. They have such wonderful blooms. I miss being able to grow them here.
