Pink Saturday in My Garden

Honestly, my garden is mostly shades of lavender, yellow and green . . .
but I found a few pink blossoms to share.

 This beautiful rose starts off pink, then fades to cream with just a hint of pink at the end of its petals.
Rescued by my son from the compost pile at the garden center where he worked,
it reminds me that given enough love, water and sunshine we all can bloom!

 These lavender buds will turn pink in a few weeks.

 My son's secret corner of the cottage garden beds.
Ice Plant and Franklin.

 Pinchusion
The bees happily forage these blooms.
Bee Balm
The low growing variety has just started to push blooms.

No garden of mine or my son's would be complete without succulents.
The Hen and Chicks were moved at the end of last summer
and have been happily growing and throwing off lots of "chicks."
I didn't know they bloomed, and pink no less.  Cool!

Enjoy your weekend and visit Bev's blog How Sweet The Sound to catch up with the pink doings of a few of her friends!

Happy Pink Saturday! Your soft pink rose is just lovely! You have a nice variety in your garden and aren't you fortunate to have a son who brings home gifts from the garden! Enjoy your weekend.

Blessings,
Sandi

I like the ice plant and Franklin. I think that would be my favorite corner as well.

Even with the drought here in colorado, our flower beds were in full color all summer. I just finished building two new, large flower boxes for next summers crop.
