Today we are joining in on the Flower Friday Blog Hop hosted by Dory's Backyard.
As well as the This Moment See Beautiful Blog Hop.
We are having another "See Beautiful" Day here in OP although the weather is supposed to turn bad later this afternoon. Mom is trying a new plant this year. We are posing next to it here, but Mom says it is going to be moved to the front beds as she worries we might like to taste it:) It is called a dipladenia and is from the mandevilla family. Mom \was very happy to read this online: Because it's relatively drought tolerant, dipladenia is an excellent pick for busy or forgetful gardeners who may forget to water from time to time during the summer. They must know our Mom well as she is known to be very forgetful when it comes to her flowers.
It has very pretty trumpet-shaped flowers that come in a variety of colors - ours look like a very bright pink.
Here is a closeup of some of the buds that should be opening soon. We hope it will bloom all summer for us too. And then Mom can bring it inside for the winter.
We hope you all find some ways to See Beautiful and find some Friday Flowers in your world today too.
Meanwhile, I am going to hide out in my little shelter because I heard the weather radio just put un on a severe storm watch:(
