It's cold and wintry here in Utah but I am enjoying bloom in my kitchen window. Thought I would share......

I'm more of a darker pink girl; that last photo Lovey dubby really, really like those ruffled edges though.
Had a pretty purple once but it died.
My pinks were gifts from my BF's hubby - it was his very first attempt to root AVs. Hurray! He ended up with several and so I got two.
We couldn't believe he actually did it, so proud of him. And him not even a gardener- but he took to those AVs and tends to them.

Paul, your kitchen window must have the prettiest view ... from outside, looking in! Lovey dubby Lovely AV's!
Makes me want to grow them again. Actually, I think I have two around here somewhere but neither have bloomed in a long while due to lack of good light.

Betsy, Pretty pink AV you've got growing there too! Thumbs up
