Phlowers – Deluge of Pink Flower Showers

Who would believe this gorgeous deluge of pink florets is atop the humble herb Oregano? I have quite a few Oregano plants in the front of my herb garden border. Not only flavorful, this member of the mint family is a healing herb. Oregano is a wonderful herb to use for its preventative/medicinal qualities. As with most foods and herbs, organically grown Oregano is the best choice.

Oregano florets draw pollinators by the dozens. Today, along with the honeybee, I also spotted wasps, bumblebees, cabbage white butterflies, hoverflies and sweat bees on the blossoms.

The Oregano blossoms are my entry into Cee’s Flower of the Day.

          1. and side note – my rose of Sharons are only now starting to really bloom – I think they usually thrive in July – but was wondering if I delayed their blooms because I cut them back twice in later spring (they were getting too large)

              Just checked this morning. I saw buds, but they are still small. It will be spectacular when they burst into bloom. The color is so pretty. I’ll have to keep watch that bugs don’t begin to feast on them before they have a chance to blossom.

      My husband says when he was a child he didn’t like the hollyhocks planted on the side of their house…there were always a lot of bees swarming around in them. I would be outside with my camera all day if they were planted here. I love pink…they sound lovely.

    Aren’t they beautiful. And…I forgot to mention they have long stems, and last several days as a floral flower in vases.
