Visions of Pink

 

Pink flowers

This week in the Sandbox garden I have noticed that the flowers that are blooming now are mostly pink.   This gardener does not have beds of a particular colour but a mish mash of all colours dispersed all over.    I am not that clever to design for areas of colour so it is interesting to me to see certain colours emerge amass.   I had a period of yellows and then some whites, now pinks and I see some blues beginning to appear.    The mosaic today is showing a new climbing rose call America, a pink peony from the side garden that did not even bloom last year, clematis maybe Josephine, dainty little pink and white dianthus and pale pink daisies.   

If it is Monday I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.    Have a great week.  Valerie

Beautiful blooms. I love the pinks! Such a pretty mosaic!

Oh very pretty...I'm so glad that you confessed to not planning color. Neither do I. That would be way beyond me. Whatever you're doing, you're doing it just right because it looks lovely.

Hi Val
Your pink flowers are all pretty, my peonies are just starting to open now. Hard to believe how we can be a good week behind you.
