The past few mornings have been very dark and I am looking forward to seeing what my blogging friends will post today to link in to the third day of my Week of Flowers. 😃 A big thank you to you all. This is so positive and so enjoyable! But also a big thank you to all of you who are reading and liking these posts. 🤗
If you are here for the first time, do take a look at Day One and Day Two, and click on the links in the comments to see even more colour and light. And why not join in – just post a photo of a flower (or a few flowers) one day or on each day through to December 7th and leave a link below in the comments.
Today I am focussing on pink and purple. The pretty Sidalcea above is absolutely exquisite. One of those flowers that lasts well and fades beautifully.
The Achillea is a gorgeous shade of pinky red and is a real highlight on the back of the Butterfly Bed. It flowered on and off all summer. The Phlox was a revelation… the first time I have successfully grown it! I was always convinced it would get mildew, but it didn’t and flowered for weeks. The Hellebore is the most amazing one I have ever grown. If you come across the Ice ‘n’ Roses collection I can recommend them. 😃 And the blue/purple Campanula is one my friend Elisabeth gave me years ago, or perhaps a seedling of the original, brought over from my old garden.
I hope you have a beautiful day. 🦋
