Dianthus 1

Incandescent glow

Shimmering and glittering



The evening sun illuminates my few Dianthus flowers with its last rays.

I usually plant Pansies as my winter flowers in this bed. However, the garden centres were closed earlier in the year, due to Lockdown, so I had to make do with these Dianthus that, luckily, I’d bought just before.

They sat there very quietly to start with, all green leaves, with barely a glimmer of colourful flowers. Now they are blooming merrily away, in various shades of red and pink, and cheering my winter days.

    Such a beautiful little flower. Dainty but sturdy. I always have Dianthus planted. I can always count on it for pretty blooms.
