Today's Flowers #52

There are many pink flowers in the garden right now.

Antirrhinum, commonly called 'snapdragon' and a flower I knew as a child as 'rabbits' mouths' or 'bunny rabbits'

Japanese anemone - there is a white variety, too, but we only have the pink ones

In our pond, along with the fish, frogs, newts, duckweed . . . and so on and so on . . . houttuynia 'Chameleon' thrives

Lacecap hydrangea (Hydrangea macrophylla normalis) - I've lost the label so can't name it

Stargazer lily (Lilium 'Stargazer') - very showy with a heady perfume

Sweetly scented pink climbing rose - again I've lost the label :-(

This is the first anniversary of 'Today's Flowers' - congratulations!
Thank you to Luiz Santilli Jr. for creating this meme and to Luiz, Denise Gullickson, Laerte Pupo and Valkyrien for hosting it each week.
