A Range of Pinks and Purples







Yes, I've tried this a couple of times before (see here and here): using a landscape image as a springboard for organizing the images of selected plants here in the gardens. I couldn't resist doing it again. The beautiful palette of pinks, rose, maroon and purples in the sky and reflected in the pond seemed a perfect set up for some of the later summer blossoms and colors here on WillOaks Farm.

Pastoral, romantic and dreamy, I find this very inspiring; enough said.

Love these! My garden is fading quickly these days--everything is sort of dying off. We clipped back tons of plants yesterday and most of them were drying up and getting ready for fall. I'm envious that you still have color.

Your pics are always gorgeous but I absolutely love the first one in this post.

That top picture is gorgeous. What great colors. Sometimes the sunset is just so amazing -- but I rarely have a camera handy when it is. Great shots.
