Sunny Solstice

Blythe Spirit rose, wild daisy, alchemilla in the Rose garden.

Mystery Dianthus. A velvety almost black dianthus with magenta spots and pink edging.
My Mom received a flower bouquet which included a few of these amazing pinks. I took one of them and stuck it in her garden, hoping it would grow roots. It did! And now I have this gorgeous flower in my garden too!

I watched this ladybug having lunch on my roses yesterday, came back later and all the aphids were gone.

Love that Dianthus. How wonderful that it rooted for you and it's now growing in your gardens. What great gardening friends lady bugs are.

Have a great day ~ FlowerLady

Beautiful flowers !
BTW now it cooled down to a more normal temperature for July, around 25°C that's nice. You probably have the same haven't you ?

Hello,
I've been searching for the name of the Dianthus that I bought today and I stumbled on your photo. This dianthus looks a lot like the one I bought. Do you have any idea what's the scientific name of your dianthus?

Hey, just looking around some blogs, seems a pretty nice platform you are using. I'm currently using Wordpress for a few of my sites but looking to change one of them over to a platform similar to yours as a trial run. Anything in particular you would recommend about it? Agen Sbobet Agen Ibcbet
