Pinks in garden in a heat wave

My pink yarrow is spreading

Pink spider flower for the butterflies and hummingbirds

Pink salvia and violas

Bougainvillea in a pot on the patio it doesn't live in winter here

Pink cosmos almost ready to open
Everything pink is popping open in our 100 degree heat wave. I am surprised the violas are surviving. No relief in sight yet from this heat but the pinks help me feel like it is cooler.

  1. I love the pink spider flower. Is there another name for it? It's beautiful. If you love wedding ring quilts, visit my wedding ring quilt post and giveaway.

  3. so pretty especially considering the darn heat! Now I promised I would NOT complain after the frigid winter we had, but come on...10 to 15* hotter than normal?
    thanks for sharing some cool looking pinks :))

  4. OOOOOOOOOhhhh! I love all your pretty pink flowers! I did not know that salvia came in pink!

    So sorry about the heatwave and your blogging problem.

    To solve my blogging problem I logged out of blogger and logged back in NOT clicking "keep me logged in". And that worked. So many people told me about this easy solution! Thank goodness for our wonderful blogging community!
    Hope this helps!

  5. Oh my goodness a heat wave! The flowers look lovely..hope you get a break soon.
    Happy Pink Saturday..xo Tami

    Thank you for sharing and Happy Pink Saturday!

  9. Hi Marie, your pink flowers are delightful. 100 degrees, yikes. It is very chilly in Maine. I'm glad, I don't like the heat.

    Happy Pink Saturday.
