Fragrant Colour

At the moment I have many colours in my garden: yellow, orange, blue, yellow/orange, white, grey, red, purple...

As can be seen by many previous posts, I always walk around my garden with my camera in my hand, capturing whatever mood presents itself to me. For this post - and probably many more this summer - I've decided to concentrate on colour; the pink colour in my garden.

Above and below are the roses on the hedgerow along my street boundary. These are miniature climbing roses in soft pink.

Below is a close-up of this pretty flower with the sun filtering through the healthy green foliage.

Near the rockery, and behind the large pond waterfall, I have swaths of pink (See below)
These carpets of groundcovering dianthus spp are created by tiny decorative rosy, carnation-like flowers. Not only are these dainty blooms a delight to the eye, but they also smell divine. Dianthus, also known as pinks, are not always pink but I only have this variety in my garden.

Close-up the Dianthus spp resemble miniature carnations, to which they are related


  1. BEautiful roses, and I love the pink ground cover.

  2. Your garden is fantastic in pinks, and the dianthus too.

  3. You have a beautiful garden. The dianthis is a carpet of bliss.

  4. Oh, thank you for posting color! We have snow and won't see color for months. Isn't the world an amazing place?

  5. Lovely flowers. I miss my roses as it's late autumn here and they've all been pruned back.
    Enjoy your spring!
