Your favourite #PinkSquares

Becky’s Square Photo Challenge: Past Squares
Cee’s FOTD

I though since it’s Floral Friday as well, I’d stick to my #PinkSquares as I am sure there will be at least one pink flower. I am trawling the stats to find some of your favourites.

There is always some likes and some comments and in 2018 there were a few for these posts -the top number for Comment was Pink#11 with thirty-nine comments For some strange reason, the original square image is missing???

Next was Pink#17 with 21 comments. A pink Frangipanni with a bonus Red Shield bug

And to round out the top three Pink#7 with 17 comments. It looks like the fungi had people talking

Now for the number of likes. Third was Pink#22 with twenty-seven likes. A dresser in my besties old house. That’s part of one of her paintings. That’s just how it was, no staging and I saw the scene from across the room and took the photo

Pink#18 received twenty-nine likes.and was second highest. A house on the island of Burano just a ferry ride from Venice.

And the most liked photo was the very last post Pink#31 This post received thirty-six likes and there has bee three recent views in September and October this year. Actually it was more than one photo. I love to grow Begonias. Therefore I just had to show your a few of the varieties I have; their leaves and flowers. I’ll do slideshow to make it easier.

Update to the previous post

Hello,
Well if as magic, all my technical stuff has been resolved.. My landline is back after most of this month having a rest and my satellite internet is restored thanks to being on the phone (thanks landline) to get it fixed. If I use my mobile phone, I have to be outside to use the phone so can’t sit at my computer and do the stuff I have to try and fix things.
It was around 4:15 when I rang…….number 14 in the queue……around 5:30 I was on and by 6:15 all has been fixed.

I probably won’t go back in time and look at your posts so no likes or comments from me doesn’t mean I didn’t like it, it is just too hard. I only follow around 200 blogs but also find others associated with those…..and then there’s the 1,766 who follow my blog!!! How did that happen? I had no idea it had grown to there. There are a lot of commercial and promotional sites so I reckon there’s about 500 real people who somehow appreciate my shit.

I promise not to go back a week or so and have a photo challenge blitz. I shall start from fresh tomorrow or maybe a Cee’s FOTD and a Floral Friday

A while ago I was tending a neglected part of the garden, not hard to get to just I don’t get around there often. I suddenly can across this single Bottlebrush on a single small stick which has never flowered and has been there for ages. It has died in a couple of droughts and suddenly reappears. So I share with you a celebratory comeback for the Bottlebrush and me

The Firewheel flower

Cee’s FOTD

This is a flower from a Firewheel Tree – Stenocarpus sinuatus. Not the best photo as the flower isn’t at it best. It should look like a wheel with “spokes” radiating from a central hub. I dare say birds or animals have been feeding on these flowers.

The Firewheel Tree is a rainforest tree and can grow to thirty metres in height. The flowers attract insects too, butterflies and other nectar loving insects like bees.

Some old and some new pinks

Summer Still Colour Challenge June: #Pink

Since Judes pink colour challenge I thought I would have a look around and see what I could find. A selection of pinks you may have seen before and some you won’t have I hope. Of course there is going to be lots of flowers some with a bonus flower friend.

Yes at this stage we were leading the yacht race

Yes I know, if you have to say it, say it

In my garden

Cee’s Flower of the Day

This Grevillea was a very sad rescue plant from a nursery a few years ago. It struggled for the two and a half years of drought and a bit of neglect as it wasn’t close to where sprinklers were and needed hand watering.

Look at the wonderful flower now. The bush is full of flowers. The name tag has long since gone. Perhaps “Loopy Lou”?
