Pretty In Pink!

pretty-in-pink

Most of us grow gardens because we love the feeling they give us. Whether that feeling is calm or energetic, color is one of the main ways we can affect and change the feeling of a garden. Rather than going for the same old green garden with splashes of yellow or red, how about go a little bolder, but soft at the same time… Make your garden Pretty in Pink! Whether it’s with pink flowers, or pink garden supplies within the garden, what a great way to add romance to the garden, or go a little brighter and add a feisty pop! This post is just one of my fun ones… inspiring you to think about what you want in your garden, and how making small changes can be the most fun thing about this whole gardening deal… So sit back and be inspired along with me, and be Pretty in Pink!

Soft pink Pelargoniums are the epitome of romance in the garden… Can you imagine a whole bed of these spilling over onto your garden path?

These bright pink sweet peas are still full of romance, but with a sassy side. See the difference in how they make you feel?

Enchanted fairytale dreams… Could you take a pale pink spray paint to some garden furniture you own right now and replicate this look?

Get pink with a garden tool kit from Target… Love this!

These cherry blossoms are so cheery! A mix of bright and pale blooms, these make an amazing show in spring.

Ok, I want a pink garden hose. Seriously.

In case anyone ever wonders, pink roses are my fav roses… (my Honey already knows this, thankfully!)

A brighter pink gives more energy, which do you like best?

Even better for romance than a pink rose? An old-fashioned pink rose!

Our final bit of our pretty in pink feature (sad to see it end!) is one I just love… Pink roses, pink floors at the base of the gate, and pink planters along the wall…all balanced wight he white gate. (Look closely, they painted small pink flowers on the gate too!)

  2. Hi Kathy! What a beautiful site! I am a regular contributing writer for Herb Quarterly magazine and Heirloom Gardener!

    I adore pink in the garden!

      Thx for the nice compliment Katherine! I love both those magazines, I have soft spot for herbs and heirlooms, in fact, most of my contemporary garden is all herbs… I agree, what feels better than pink in the garden… except maybe pink and purple…and white…with a little grey… :)
