Tickled pink

Just a couple shots from out in the yard today.
I have no idea what this is. A lady who used to live across the street from me gave it to me a few years ago. This is the first time it's ever gotten any kind of flower on it so it was a very pleasant surprise when I saw it.

 I've shown a picture of this one before but I liked this one so here it is again.

I don't know what it is either, but it certainly is pretty. I love pink. One of my favorite colors.

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

Woof! Woof! Very Nice Ann. Golden Thanks again for pawticipating on my Barkday n the IDEA was great. I LOVE the linky tool - plan to use in a giveaway contest. Hope you had a great time with Amanda. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Lin said...

I've noticed the garden is starting to look really tired. Lots of funky weather this summer, so the leaves are either dried up or have a fungus on tons of plants. I'm kind of ready to start cutting things back.

The first is a allium and the second digitalis.Nice capture, hope you girls are having agood time.

LDH said...

Very pretty! And Yeah that Amanda is home :)

Grace said...

I like that second one - a few folks have featured pics of them - I should have remembered the name...Enjoying your visit with Amanda? I betcha!

Roschelle said...

these are great shots. i love the first one. you really have an eye!

tahtimbo said...

Drawing on my extensive knowledge of horticulture, I would say that it is a pink flower or using the Latin name: pinkus flowerus :)

Anny said...

wow! i love flower shots :) Hope you are having a great day with Amanda.

Nice captures for the lovely flowers in your backyard! :D

You surely are having a wonderful time with your daughter Amanda. Regards me to buddy Duke! ;D

Russ said...

The flowers are looking good. I love any kind of the bell flowers. They are just really cool looking.

Philippa said...

That top picture would make a lovely card!

Nico Designs said...

isn't that a fun surprise? The original home owners of our house were gardeners--it is really neat to see what still pops up all of these years later.

Marg said...

Those sure are pretty flowers. All the flowers here are gone from all the heat and no rain. I don't know what the first one is either.
Hope you are having a blast with Amanda.
Have a great week end.

FishHawk said...

Would this be some indication of just how much Amanda has blossomed while away?

Sharkbytes (TM) said...

Never saw that pink one before, but the globular shape makes me think allium. Nice!

Donna said...

I love that gorgeous dusty rose/pink color.

Ann said...

Sandee one of mine too

Sugar it was our pleasure, your barkday was fun

Lin there are things in my yard that should be thinned out but then I said that last year too

out on the prairie I googled allium and the flower does look like that but the leaves are completely different than the pictures I saw

LDH thanks and yes YEAH

Grace that one I do know what it is since I just bought it this year plus several people told me

Roschelle thank you. sometimes my eye is a little near sighted or far sighted though...lol

tahtimbo thank goodness for your expert analysis, it made me laugh

Anny I love flower shots too, they don't generally move when you try and get their picture.

junezach thank you very much

russ actually I don't think I've ever met a flower I didn't like

Philippa I agree, if only I could get my act together and work on some of those cards...lol

Nico, yes it was. That must be fun to watch and see what pops up every year

Marg so far the flowers seem to be holding up pretty good around here, we've had just enough rain to keep them going

Fishhawk, what a lovely observation, wish I would have thought of it :)

Sharkbytes that's what steve said too, but the leaves seem all wrong

donna oh me too, could look at them all day long.

The Urban Cowboy said...

You are fast becoming a pro with your wonderful photography. That first shot is amazing.

BeadedTail said...

Whatever they are, they are certainly lovely!

Anna said...

Wow, beautiful close-ups of your garden flowers. Thanks for your kind words on my blog post about grey skies!
Hugs,
Anna

Catherine said...

Beautiful!

Ann said...

Urban cowboy I think that lucky amateur would more accurately describe me :)

beaded tail I was fascinated by the look of them

Anna thank you and you are very welcome.

catherine thanks, nature at it's finest.

VanillaSeven said...
