Memory Lapses - Rose Campion

I had to print these out, mail them to my mom, because my memory has gone. 

Pink Something, no - Something Pink - These are called Rose Campion.  Don't you hate it when you cannot remember simple flower names?  We are not even talking Latin here.
They have a soft, slightly fuzzy grey-green leaf, reminiscent of Lamb's Ears but with far prettier flowers about an inch across.

These are blooming right now in the bed where we cut down 18 trees. All of the surviving plants are loving all the light  this spring and growing gangbusters. As in, slightly wild and unwieldy.
Not to mention weeds that were never there before.

I love comments. My heart goes pitter-patter every time there is a new one.
