Pink in the Garden

Projectspectrum

Although my own garden is beginning to look, well. . . kind of bad; definitely bedraggled . . . I'm still finding shades of pink (amid the weeds and dying stems).

My Watercolor shrub rose is having a great year (following a couple of years of decline; I almost took this guy out last year -- glad I didn't!).

And parts of my succulent wreath are having a bloomin' party!  (Other parts are . . . not.)

And this?  Why, this is poke weed.  A weed.  Something I did not plant.  But it has such interesting blooms. . . that sometimes I just let it go.

(This particular poke weed is growing strong - with a couple of friends - in a bed I am planning to renovate yet this season.  It would be bleak without the poke weed!)

I've also had the great fortune of visiting several gardens (public and otherwise) this month.  I've seen so many lovely things!  Here are some PINK highlights.

From the Michigan State University Children's Garden:

The petals in the water are so eye catching. I'm such a poor blogger/project spectrum participant. Last night I visited one of the most amazing gardens in SLC and I forgot my camera!!! Seriously, what's up with that? Your pinks are amazing and I wish I had a few to share too....oh well, c'est la vie.

Pink is probably my favorite color so I have lots of it in the garden. Probably one of prettiest is an annual poppy that very happily self seeds itself every year. :D
