1.9 Color - Pink

Bestest Friend and I are embarking on a new blog project. Each day of the month we will post a picture on a pre-determined theme and write a little something about it. The theme for the ninth day of each month is "Color."

In the middle of the winter, when everything outside is a shade of grey, I dream of green grass with pops of color from flowers and birds.  As soon as the flowers started blooming early last month, I started taking pictures of every variety I could find because it meant that the endless winter was over.

I wish I had taken the class in high school in which everyone learned how to identify trees. I tried to use an app on my phone to identify trees when we went on our daily walks, but I wasn't actually learning anything. My mother-in-law knows all the trees and all the plants and whenever I see her in the spring and summer months, all I do is quiz her. What's that tree? What's that flower?  What's that?

So, in my inexpert research, I have determined that this plant, that grows in front of my brother- and sister-in-law's house, is some variant of a weigala shrub.  But, of course, take it from me, I don't really know what I'm talking about.  Please correct me if I'm wrong.

To see what Bestest Friend wrote about the theme of the day, check out her blog, Too Legit To Quit.  


  1. I would have guessed rhododendron, but I don't know either.

  2. If nothing else, I can list for you what's it's NOT. It's not tulips. Or roses. Or Queen Anne's Lace. Or hydrangeas. Or Gerbera daisies.
