You’re in for a real treat with this post. If this doesn’t make you smile, I’m not sure what will.
Since this spring rolled around and plants and flowers began growing, we’ve been splendidly surprised at what’s been left behind for us to marvel at. If you’re curious as to what I’m referring, take a look at my Flowers category. That category will give you a taste of what we’ve got growing here around the property.
A late bloomer to the party, but in no way any less relevant or beautiful, is our many shades of pink Phlox bushes. It seems that these guys have grown up in a wide variety of places – next to the pool fence, at the front of the house, in the small garden in the back yard. And wow. I’ll tell you that – what a sight they are for a striking September flower. They range from light to dark pink and are a real attraction for the ultra-interesting Hummingbird Moth. If you’ve never seen a Hummingbird Moth, just think Hummingbird, but not. It’s an insect that acts just like the bird. Strange, I know.
You’re going to like these pictures – I just know it. When I took them off Laura’s camera, I instantly became excited to post them. First, I’ll show you the Hummingbird Moth.
(Do you know how lucky – or patient – or good – you have to be to get a picture like this?)
And now, I’ll show you some pictures of our pink Phlox. What a flower.
