Growing up a redhead my mom never let me wear pink. A ginger herself, she advised that pink was not our color. She was right of course, but when you’re told not to wear something, you can think of nothing else. Am I right?
Pink is definitely one of those colors that can easily be overdone, but not in the garden. This has been my summer of pink. The volunteer cosmos continue to splash color across the pumpkin patch. The pink potted Hydrangea doubled in size and bloom production. I added a few pink Vinca to one of the patio planters and rounded things out with a polka dot plant (Hypoestes phyllostachya), grown for its beautiful pink and green leaves.
Power to the Pink!
What’s blooming in your world this Thursday?
