In the Pink
This time each year as I browse the local nurseries I am drawn to the pink flowers. The color is just so soothing in the garden. When it comes to my house, which is kind of a muddy red brick with white trim, the pinks seem to show up nicely against it. So, I guess I’m choosing pink for my color scheme this Spring — again! What color are you using?
Here is my Spring tour of some of the highlights so far:
The cherry tree was beautiful this year- even as the petals fell and turned into pink snow.
I have lily of the valley under the deck which smells wonderful.
Even the sunset at Easter glowed pink!
This is a choke cherry bush in my back yard, now about six feet in diameter. They are native to this region and have beautiful deep pink flowers. This one was given to me by a friend which makes it even more special.
There are lots of pink and purple pansies along the driveway.
The azaleas are just starting to open, but are loaded with flowers.
OK, it’s not pink, but I just wanted to show you how interesting the branches are getting on my smallest curly willow.
The peartree was also pretty spectacular this Spring, too.
One last photo with the phlox in full bloom — it really was a beautiful Spring!
