Even in the fall my garden is full of shades of pink.

    Perfectly pink pretties.

    Lisa – Do you think anyone would ever intuit that pink – or red – is my favorite color?

  • Hi Pat, Thank you for visiting my blog. Nice to meet you. We had a huge anomalous rain storm about two weeks ago and it has really made a difference in the vibrancy of the sedums. In other words, they’re REALLY pink! What’s not to love about that, right? Of course, Alma is doing her best to light up the garden and I love your Japanese anemone. Every year I think I’m going to dig mine up because I get tired of waiting for the flowers but then they bloom and win me over once again.

    I must check out your book. I’m an author too. Cheers.

  • Just purchased the Kindle version of your book. Looks very interesting!

  • Pat

    Grace – I am jealous of your rain, but it certainly made your plants glow. I hope you enjoy the book.

  • Pat I love seeing the autumn pink as it is lovely against the purples and yellows.

  • I always seem to have a lot of pink in my garden, too. But that’s just fine with me. I just love anemones. They are definitely worth the wait. 🙂

    i have the autumn joy sedum which my mother in law gave us years ago. such a treat at this time of year.

  • I love every shade of pink! By the way, I think I’ve lamented here before that my Japanese anemone has never bloomed. The other day I noticed that I finally have some blooms–I’m so excited! They’re white, though:)
