Pinks for me, but not for bees

A couple clumps of pinks

I planted myself some flowers today. I planted a new pot of cilantro to replace the ones flowering and going to seed (to the delight of the tiny bees). I planted a pot of dill. And I planted some pinks.

I’ve been a fan of pinks, or Dianthus, almost since I started gardening. They’re pink, they’re pretty, they’re frilly, they’re fragrant. They don’t seem to get a lot of bees, though. That’s okay. More pinks for me.
