Pretty in PINK !


Time is running out ... Autumn is picking up speed and before I know it the Spring bulbs and peony will be here to plant and I will be in a full blown panic to put the garden properly to bed !
BUT ? ... I wanted to share some of the pretty in PINK before it is time to say good bye to them : )







OOPS !  ... OK ... my one exceptional goldenrod for which I have to hunt down it's identification BIG sigh !
It is outstanding as a garden goldenrod .. our bunnies have munched on it but it came back stronger than ever and provides one heck of a contrast to all my pinkness

It has a wonderful upright form and if I had dead-headed it earlier on it would have kept blooming for ages .. I really like this plant !!

Lovely photos ! We still have some plants and flowers going strong here despite the cold nights . I like seeing the fields with goldenrod and wild flowers . Thanks for sharing . Have a good week !

Absolutely beautiful. My arthritis is acting up today and these photos did me good. Thank you so much for sharing. I have heard about goldenrod's medicinal abilities.

What a pretty geranium! My hydrangeas are all turning pink as well. I love watching their transformations. Golden Rod is one of my favourite plants at this time of year. Bees and wasps seem to adore it!

Pink is one of my favorite colors in the garden. Love those hydrangeas--they just get better with age, don't they? My geraniums have perked up with the cooler weather, too. I'm not as big a fan of yellow, either, but it just seems right for fall; the goldenrod is lovely, and the bees and little critters love it as well.

Hello Elaine girl : )
Thank you ! ... this weather has been outstanding lately .. and I am stuck with renos or grocery shopping .. BIG sigh ! haha

Hello Linda : )
Thank you .. sorry about the pain .. seems we can't escape that as we age.It is good to look for alternatives though !

Jennifer girl .. I am red faced still but trying to get there with your baby !
Yes .. the bees and others are making such an intense effort to get all the pollen they can .. I think this winter may be a hard one with such activity going on .. BIG shiver! LOL

Rose girl how are you !
Yes ... hydrangea do get better with age .. Pinky Winky certainly does! Yes .. it is a shock to see that blast of yellow with the pink but I couldn't help myself .. this particular goldenrod is a really pretty cultivar .. now if only I could figure out which one it is?LOL
