Pink Saturday - Floral Happiness!

Today I would like to share with you one of my favorite summer plants that produce and produce beautiful flowers all summer long. I know, I know....summer is over! But it doesn’t have to be because you can bring this plant inside and enjoy it all fall and winter long. Enjoy it in the spring too, and then again in summer next year. It comes in a wide variety of colors too. What is this mysterious plant you say!?

An Impatient!!! They are fairly easy to take care of…..they wilt if you don’t water them, unlike some plants that just die. Impatiens give you a warning in my opinion, saying please water me…don’t ask me how I know this!?


They come in wide varieties of colors. This one looks more pink then red in person…


And here is a little something floral with a touch of pink to go with my blog post today that I just added to My Etsy Shop.

Happy Pink Saturday! And have a great weekend!

Happy Pink Saturday, Heidi.

My mother always plants impatiens, too. Yours are lovely, and I agree they definitely send "I'm thirsty" messages.

Thanks for sharing your lovely pinks today.

I love the Impatients. I have been surrounded by them most of my life... and they even grow over here in Scotland (although not year round). Happy Pink Saturday! :-) Stacey

I never knew you could bring your impatiens in and overwinter them. We haven't had a hard frost here yet and mine are blooming beautiful. ~ Robyn

A great summer plant. They will grow in almost any type of weather, but my brown thumb is the end of them often.

Love your impatiens. I plant a lot of them because they do so well in our shady yard. I enjoyed visiting today. Take care~

You certainly can't go wrong with impatiens; they are timeless and beautiful in all colors or a solid color theme. I haven't been able to grow them myself in years because we have full sun, but they will always be a favorite.
