Here is a photo of a pink flower.  I know this for a fact, because after seeing it all over Agadir gardens, asking anyone I knew the name without success and fruitlessly searching my Sister-in-law’s gardening books, I broke a piece off and took it to the garden centre, selected a plant, confirmed with the assistant it was indeed the same plant, I bought it and finally asked its name.  The assistant nodded sagely and said ‘la fleur rose’  The Pink Flower.  So there you have it.  If anyone knows what its called, I’d love to hear from you!


I had it in a large pot on the terrace to start with and while it had loads of flowers it needed cutting back every winter, so about 18 months ago I moved it to my front garden.  The foliage has thrived and it now covers the tall wall, although sadly it has had no flowers..  Until this morning, walking down the road I see a beautiful cascade of flowers from my plant.  Only trouble is, its on a bit that has grown down the other side of the wall into my neighbour’s garden!

Mammasaurus and How Does Your Garden Grow?


The first flower in MY garden!

    I love your photo. Love the flower but mostly I love your wall =P I am sorry but this wall reminds me of home. This is CHB right and this is how my walls look like at home. Bare and rough. I hated it before but I miss it now. Thanks you for posting this photo =) #HDYGG

      Aw sorry to make you homesick, where do you come from? My side of the wall has been plastered and painted, but my neighbour didn’t bother. You get so used to seeing rough cement work here in Morocco, I didn’t even notice it! There is so much building and remodelling going on.

    It’s so pretty – I love the frilly edges! No idea what it’s called though – will try and help find out! Thanks for joining in and sharing with us x

    It is a lovely flower! lol – there is a website/forum that helps people identify fauna and flora – they helped me with one i spotted in Texas last year. I will see if I can try and find it again for you if you want?

    As for how my garden grows, rough, wild and unsightly! :oD (not unlike my hair …) Despite paying someone to cut it every two weeks, it never looks tidy. My grass is riddled with dandelions and my little cheeky monkey has her own brand of ‘toxic pee’ which is bleaching out and killing the spots she decides to water … and thats only the back garden! I wont bore you with the front! ;o) xox


Makes my day when someone takes time to comment. Thank you.
