Pink

In an attempt to search out colour in our constant parade of grey,gusty, damp days here is Pink from my garden.

Tiny pinks with weeds!

    So sweet (and so funny that I have just been out in the garden taking a photo of my pink paeony, and then came inside to find your ‘pink’ flowers) The pink rock rose is gorgeous and I smiled at the name of the geranium. They are edible, aren’t they?

      “Snap” on the pink things then. Your Paeony and its history are glorious. The rock roses look somewhat bedraggled again today after the vicious gales. The geranium really reminds me of boiled sweets from my childhood:-) I think geraniums are edible but I seem to feel a bit “odd” about eating flowers.

        The wind just doesn’t want to leave your city alone! It’s been wild enough here today but you would consider it mild by Wellington standards.

        As long as there is no fire with them, I guess they are bearable. Poor old Australia. You will smile when I tell you that your little pink images have been having a happy time in my head since I saw them; dancing like sugar plum fairies. And I will get to your email today.

        Bushfires are terrifying. I’m glad the pink images have offered you enjoyment. Once the wind dies down I will get out and capture some of the damage done to the flowers and trees. It is hard to watch but all part of nature, as we know.

    Pink seems to be a very popular color in the spring, I wonder if that is true or it is just that I see a lot of little pink flowers, Annie

      Pink does seem to be a universal spring colour. I like your wondering about whether it is a dominant colour in spring or do we just take more notice of pink…
