A 'pink" kind of a garden gal ...

Has anyone else noticed if they tend to lean towards one colour more than others ? .. I think I am a fuzzy pink gardener !
Fuzzy, more often than not, I am beginning to THINK !

Your stunning photographs are like fine jewelry. (I never was a diamonds girl, or any other adornment for that matter.) I suppose I am a red and yellow girl. That seems to be what I lean toward. But I love your flowers!

Anna said...

OH yes--me too..count me for pink. It's almost August Joy!!

Robin's Nesting Place said...

I'm a pink kind of gal too!

Katarina i Kullavik said...

Well, what can I say - except that pink is a favourite of mine too!

Hello there Katarina ! .. do you think all Libra women are pink fans perhaps ? .. I wonder if there is a connection .. haha

Hey Robin .. thanks for stopping by ! and I sort of thought you were a pink kind of gal too : )

Anna ... 92 days till Halloween !! and yes .. this year seemed rather stressful and I am happy to see the wrap begin a tiny bit with August arriving .. I have plants to move again .. sigh ! haha

Brenda .. thank you so much ! .. I'm not a huge jewelery kind of gal either .. I guess my garden is my big jewel with lots of different smaller ones making it up ? .. I need more coffee ! haha
Thanks for stopping by ! : )

I have more pink and lilac than I's all that PPPP followed by the coneflowers and monarda...but now it's yellow...the pinks are beginning to fade! BTW good photos!

Hello and I am off to read your earlier posts...lots of computer problems and disappearing comments. The tech guys say there isn't anything wrong. Hah!

What I like about all these beautiful pinks is that they are nothing but happy! You can't help but smile looking at them. I'm not sure about my color; my garden is ringed with marigolds, but even then, I like best the ones with red in them. :)

GardenJoy4Me said...

Joanne .. I can't imagine your garden anything but bright and cheery no matter the colour : )
You are a very positive upbeat person .. so it will show in your garden too !
I love marigolds with those red/rust tones too .. they just seem to pop don't they ?
Are you starting a list of grasses yet ? LOL

Hey Gail .. don't the techs always say that ? LOL
I think a mixture of colour is great for a garden .. too monochromatic ? spelling ? and it can be boring right / and seasonal change spurs different colour requirments to get in that time of year mood .. I love Autumn so bring on all those Fall colours !

Joy, is that a My Monet in pic 2? I just planted one that PW sent. It's just a baby now so did yours get true to size?

GardenJoy4Me said...

Anna .. I bought 3 of My Monet last year .. they are all in the front garden now. Two were a bit stressed more than the third with lack of water .. but they are very small even at full growth .. one of the reasons I bought them .. size is at a premium in my garden. I'm liking them a lot ! which is funny because when I first saw them I thought they were too 'busy" looking .. I think you need to give them 2 years to get to were they should be .. and well watered for sure !

Hey .. Cindee ! .. you are making my head swell with compliments girl ! haha
