There are those who love pink and will loudly advertise the fact. You visit their gardens and it's clear that pink is their color. You might say that when visiting my own garden, especially because pink is the definite theme in the gardens at the front of our house. Yet, if you don't assume, and you feel the need to ask me if pink is a favorite color of mine in the garden, I'll deny it.
I have a LOT of pink EVERYWHERE in my gardens, even though red is my favorite color. I'll tell you I'm not a big fan of hearts when it comes to jewelry, too. (While you're staring at my heart-shaped necklace and matching earrings.) So I've got issues.
I've also got a lot of pink in the conservatory right now. In the dead of winter, I don't care WHAT color a flower is, I love it. How can you not love this:
|This true Christmas cactus |
(Schlumbergera x buckleyi) is blooming right on
schedule, in January. (Yes, that's when they're
supposed to bloom.)
|This reminds me of a waterfall.|
|The impatiens keep on blooming as if it's summer.|
Oh wait, it IS summer in the conservatory!
|Wish I could find the tag for this Pelargonium. I want more |
for my gardens this year.
|Bromeliad (Guzmania sp.)|
|Joseph's Coat (Alternanthera ficoidia 'Party Time')|
