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.

bright and beautiful!
very cute how the petals look like waving hands.
Very beautiful flower!
I like the little flower’s delicacy.
Your picture brightens my day..
Very nice close- up shot.
It is cold and windy in Toronto Canada.
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!
Very nice flower – in Nature.
nice to see a little colour in your garden at this time of year.

Even in the winter, managed to shoot a solitary flower of intense color, congratulations. I thank you for sharing.
I love those! Can never remember what they’re called, though. Glad you can… Shavua tov.
Lovely pink. I think they’re very strong flowers too.
It’s been a while since I’ve seen one of those.
That’s a beautiful, delicate flower.
like the pink/magenta color of the dianthus…so sweet.
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.
How pretty, it is always nice to see some color
Very nice shot. I really like that color. It’s hard to watch the flowers disappear isn’t it?
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..
A lovely little bloom captured well!
Dianthus are so wonderful, clumping form or ground cover in various colors too.
Lovely little flower. I’m so spoiled since flowers bloom here year round.
