Pink in the garden

by Wendy Syddall

Whenever I’m in the garden I’m always looking to see if anything new is flowering and am ready with my camera to share the pictures with my readers. So today, 4 of the plants I noticed all in the back garden I have to add are pink. You might be forgiven for thinking that we had designed it so that we have plants of the same colour in those 2 flowerbeds but actually this really isn’t the case at all, although we do like this colour in the garden and have more pink in the front. We aren’t disciplined to keep to a set colour scheme and even when I have managed it I’ll find a random plant of a different colour self sowen.

So here are today’s pictures:
