Today’s Flowers: Dianthus

This dianthus is the last flower in my front yard, other than a straggly, lanky, tall yellow snapdragon. It waves its purplish pink petals at us, like a flag of surrender to the oncoming winter months.

Today’s Flowers is hosted by Luiz Santilli Jr. Thank you, Luiz, for this lovely and comforting meme.

Or a brave Lone Ranger surviving against all odds. Ever thought of rewarding it by potting it up and having it on your window sill?

What a beautiful flower, a very hardy little thing to survive this cold weather we're having. Great photo!

It is sad to say that we have a last flower in our garden but then we can dream about the flowers that will grace our Spring gardens and wake us from a long winter hibernation! I post my last pedals also.
Have a good week!

Leora: I do love that little flower and definitely one which will return, you capture it beautifully.

Lilli says

How pretty, it is always nice to see some color

2sweetnsaxy says

Very nice shot. I really like that color. It's hard to watch the flowers disappear isn't it?

Michelle says

It is a comforting meme after recent events....thank you for finding a nice way to correct my spelling of Ithaca...Your way looks much better than mine....I have been playing with the themes. I wish I could get one that would do what I really want. But playing with it has been a good stress reducer for me as I am not yet up to doing all the things that need to be done..

Carletta says

A lovely little bloom captured well!

Darla says

Dianthus are so wonderful, clumping form or ground cover in various colors too.

Cathy says

Lovely little flower. I'm so spoiled since flowers bloom here year round.
