Jewels of Opar (Talinum paniculatum)
You have to see these enlarged, to get the full effect! Click the photo to enlarge.

We have been blessed with rain, for several days. I took this between spells. I love how the little droplets look frozen. A little winter preview in the summer! The pink buds are usually open, showing the daintiest of flowers. I have let them re-seed abundantly on the 'inferno strip,' the bed between the city street and the sidewalk, in my front yard.
