Day 25 of 90daysofblogging

I love flowers that grow in yards. One year, Years ago!!, my neighbor gave  me a small batch of a flower that she had growing in her yard. I planted them under our crab apple/apple tree and each year they would spread and make more. They have now worked their way all around the base of the tree. I don't know the name of them and I don't remember if she told me (she no longer lives there). But, they are so pretty. If you happen to know, maybe you could leave me a comment.


 
They are sooo pretty and they keep blooming even into fall.

Thanks again :)

Check these friends out when you have a minute.

Its called a Dianthus http://dal.hubpages.com/hub/WILD-RELATIVES-OF-THE-GARDEN-CARNATION-AND-PINKS I have them in hanging pots they are very hardy.. I transplanted a few into the garden and they are doing well. Hardy little plants and come in lovely colours.
