If March is yellow month in Cyprus, I think November should be designated as pink month.
As I walked to the local supermarket a day or two ago, which is probably less than half a kilometre away, I was struck, suddenly, by just how many different pink plants were in bloom. These weren't the weeds of the spring - there hasn't yet been enough rain for wild flowers to bloom. These are cultivated plants, mostly, in people's front gardens.
First, here's our bi-coloured bougainvillea, in a pot on the porch, doing fairly well still:
Here's a gorgeous pink rose from a house not far away:
Something that looks like British 'pinks' - I don't know what the proper name is:
Some red hibiscus:
I think these are oleander, though I'm never entirely certain:
No idea what this is, with the spiky leaves:
Here's a magnificent bougainvillea growing up the side of a house:
Something that looks like impatiens (busy lizzies) gone wild, as some plants do in Cyprus:
A very showy plant here, though I don't know what it is:
And finally, although it's not pink and only has a bit of red, these bird of paradise plants are stunning.
Of course it's a little embarassinging to admit that the only reason I recognise them as bird of paradise plants is from the 'Lil Green Patch' application on Facebook...
