Friends are quiet angels who lift us to our feet when our wings have trouble remembering how to fly.

For my sweet friend Chris *♥* ṡhøώ ṃε υɾ ρïχ *♥* www.flickr.com/photos/pixfromchris13/

for the beautiful testimonial she wrote for me. I had to go out today and find something PINK for you sweetie! After driving around looking and taking shots of pinkness, I came home and this was right there in my front yard. I thought it was sweet, romantic, soft and fluttery looking, like an angel, just like you my sweet friend :)

I'm honored by your sweet words dear Chris, thank you so much.

~hugs~ and love...Tea~ xx

 

I noticed that none of my contacts had posted this flower so here is a little info about the Pink Gaura :)

 

The Gaura 'Siskiyou Pink', Gaura lindheimeri, has numerous butterfly-shapes maroon flowers opening to reddish pink flowers that bloom from last spring to early summer. With a plant height of 24” and a width of 24-36”, it is definite addition to any perennial garden. ‘Siskiyou Pink’ Gaura requires full sun in a well-drained area with average to rich soil and is very drought tolerant.

 

A major attraction to butterflies, it continues to bloom through the first hard frosts of autumn into winter. ‘Siskiyou Pink’ Gaura looks great on a rocky ledge, near bricks and stones, near Sedum 'Autumn Joy' or small dahlias. It's also enchanted with pink bush roses and as a contrast to plants with big fleshy leaves.
