Pink Mix of Blooms

I  have to move my pink Moonflower for my garden renovations and am a bit nervous... So, I have taken some cuttings, just in case it decides to give up the ghost. I found these photos from last summer when it did really well. I love the pink Datura the most because it looks so delicate even though the blooms are so  large

The blooms always makes me think of fairy tales.

At the moment there is not much happening in the garden, but the fuchsia at the front door is sporting a bloom or two. But anyway, with those pink and mint leaves it doesn't really need flowers to look good. This one struggled for a long time and finally seems to be in an agreeable mood, so it should look great this summer.

I just managed to catch the last pink bloom on the Dombeya. The bloom die and fade but hang on the tree for ages and looks quite good in clusters of rust!


A rusty cluster!

Midwinter or not, there is always a flower on my hot pink Hibiscus! What a treat!

Wishing you all a happy weekend!

  3. Hi Veronica,

    I love your beautiful pictures. The flowers are stunning! I enjoy 'BIG' flowers as they appear to be the focal point of a garden.


  4. Hi Veronica,
    I love your moonflower...It’s stunning.
    If you have to move it the best time is when it's dormant. Try and dig out the root ball with out disturbing to many roots and it should be fine. Water well and keep it watered or it will go into shock and die.

  5. Wow! You have a beautiful garden! I love love love these gorgeous blooms..how lovingly you captured their beauty... the raindrops on that moonflower image is stunning! Would love to see more of beautiful Cape Town through your lenses. Hugs~Poppy
