Pink Saturday

It's Pink Saturday and I'm showing this lovely plant, I call it firetail. I have already done a pink Saturday post on it but that was last fall, these photos were taken yesterday.

I am so proud of myself because this is one of those gorgeous plants that I manage to kill in one year and here we are on the second blooms for the second year!


Now I know that the spring brings a hope for new growth but has the firetails at it's die back. This year I think I'll take advantage of that and re pot it into two plants. If anyone else knows anything on this plant the information would be greatly appreciated.

I love those gorgeous blooms...and I also have the kiss of death with growing flowers.It's kinda strange tho..any vegetable I plant will not only grow, but will do really well.
Happy Pink Saturday and have a most wonderful weekend.
