Pink Saturday - Spring Flowers

I hope everyone had a great week.
 It has been raining here all week but the temperatures have been mild 
and the spring flowers have started to bloom. 
Lets' take a quick look at some pink blooms for Pink Saturday.


This is the flower from a Bergenia called Tubby Andrews.
 It has variegated leaves, grows 12" tall and is tolerant of a wide range of soil conditions,
 including dry shade.


A flower bud of Helleborus orientalis (Lenten Rose),


which opens into this wonderful pink flower. 
Pink Saturday is hosted by Beverly at How Sweet the Sound.

Thank you for the visit and have a wonderful weekend!!

Oh what a glorious share today. I love the flowers that you have shared. I have never planted or grown either of them. They are so beautiful. I wonder if these would grow here in the desert?

Have a glorious weekend sweetie. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Your Lenten Rose plant is just gorgeous. I was so hoping my new ones would bloom this spring but they must still be too small.The Bergenia is such a beautiful spring flower. Very pretty pinks! Have a wonderful weekend.

Hi Jen!

I'm always startled by the intense magenta color of some of the bergenias– but they are a welcome sight after long dark days. And of course, I adore the hellebores!

I'm not familiar with Bergenia but I need flowers that do well in partial shade. I'll check it out. The Lenten Rose is lovely. Have never had those either. Nancy

Hi Jen,
So pretty in pink, I have never had a Bergenia (sp), it's always fun to find something new to try :-) As always I gotta say... your photos are amazing!
