These have been being mowed for years, but a few are where I'm making a flower bed, so I left them. So cute!


There are other Talinums, but I haven't come across them yet. Do you have this, or any of the others?

Those are Talinum paniculatum. There are only four wild species recorded in the US.
Talinum fruticosum only in Florida
Talinum polygaloides found in Arizona, New Mexico and Texas, primarily along the border with Mexico.
Talinum spathulatum only in New Mexico and Texas also along the border.
Talinum paniculatum in most of the southern US.

I think they're the prettiest little things.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.
