Pink In The Garden


Pink is a very important color in the garden.  It tempers the hot colors of summer like orange, yellow and red and seems to blend with all of them.  Pink likes blue and white as companion colors and comes in all sorts of pink tones.

You are right about pink. When I first started gardening here on the shores of Lake Michigan, I was not too interested in pink - but my mind has changed. Pick does lots for the other colors. Enjoyed my visit today. Thanks Jack

Your gardens are full of color and beauty, Eileen. I especially like your clematis and roses. I have some of the same ones.

Gorgeous pinks. I"ve noticed so many of mine are blooming in Holland. I like the new begonia which I've never seen before. In Holland we have the double begonias which I love. Beautiful post. xo Jenny
