I swear: it seemed to happen all of a sudden.
Everywhere. Pink phlox, pink anemones, pink sweet pea — pink, pink, pink.
Morning glories in a deep pink, almost red, are now more numerous than the blues….
A late pink clematis
An early spring clematis that sends out a few tiny blooms in late summer…
And a pink surprise — self seeded in the concrete step
… an unexpected reminder of last summer’s pink snapdragons…
… that grew in a container nearby.
Whatever your colours, I hope your garden is doing well.

Enjoy your profusion of powerful pink passion! 🙂
I am p-p-p-leased to do so!
Thats a title that took me back! We have lots of shades of orange here and hardly any pink but love your self sown snap dragon, they are such jolly plants.
It’s orange time. Orangeyou glad? (OK, pls. forgive me for that.)
I’m tickled pink! These are beautiful 😀
Aren’t they, though? Love that expression, tickled pink!
Plants are so amazingly strong. We can take a cue from that snapdragon’s will to live.
Yup, that’s for sure, Aggie!
Lovely, Cynthia:). I am realizing my color is purple. Purple all over. Mixed with white. Just speak to me. But I’d take your pink garden any day!
Purple is a great colour in the garden, K. In the spring, we have lots of purples in our garden, and I love it.
Like Julie, my garden is oranges and yellow at this time of the year and the cannas are really putting on a show with this hot weather!!
And I’m sure it’s all beautiful!
I much prefer the refreshing pink of Cynthia’s garden…
Nah, Gail. It’s time for the reds, yellows and oranges. Which is why I am so surprised at all these late season pinks. I coulda sworn that pinks happened in my garden only in spring. But what do I know?
Pink is beautiful!
I love the pinks! Your garden obviously has a mind of its own. 😀
Hi Clare: I agree! A maverick garden.
A very special garden.
I love the shades of pink. They are really refreshing at the end of summer, and that snap dragon sure is a trooper!
You are so right: they are refreshing. I think there’s a pink revolution underway, though, because I don’t remember this many pinks at this time of year.
Blue is my favorite but I do like that pink morning glory. I didn’t even know they came in pink or red.
Know what? I never bought the pink MG seeds. But in that spot of the garden, lovely mutants tend develop — maybe also recessive genes at work? White or pink forget-me-nots; a Chinese forget-me-not that I never planted; A two toned yellow and pink hollyhock, and now this pink MG. I only ever planted the blue-purple ones, never pinks, and never this almost reddish-pink colour.
All of these are beautiful!!! I especially love the morning glories because they took me back to my childhood when I saw an enormous amount of them. I’ve always been in awe of their deep beauty. Thanks for sharing, Cynthia! Your beautiful and awesome posts always help make my day brighter! 🙂 🙂 🙂
What a nice compliment, Maxine. Thanks for saying that. I’m glad the morning glories bring back lovely memories for you.
Beautiful in pink, Cynthia. And the snapdragon is inspiring. Tenacious.
Blessings ~ Wendy
Thank you, Wendy.
I don’t think I have a single pink flower! Well, I have some hydrangeas that are turning that dusty rose color they get in fall. I go for bright saturated colors in the garden!
I love those hydrangeas. Mine turn green, then a tan colour in winter.
Pinks are great and I find that pink plants are usually my strongest.
That’s interesting. I didn’t realize the amount of pink in my garden in late summer until now.
Pretty in pink! I never tire of seeing your beautiful flowers. 🙂
Thank you, Theresa.
Pinks – a gentle balm for the soul, a kindness before the reds and yellows and oranges of fall take over. Thank you. I love being able to glimpse the many colours of your garden.
Thank you, Margaret.
Each part of the season seems to have its colour, lovely pink pictures!
Love those volunteer blooms! Reminds us of the resilience of nature & the gift of chance. Thx for sharing!!!
Love that clematis.
Love those little stragglers that pop up!!
Me too! How was the vacation?
Hey Cynthia .. I’m loving your pink! Thanks for sharing … 🙂
My pleasure! Now that you’re heading into Spring, I imagine you’ll have lots of pink(s)…? Or not?
The orchard is waking up … Lots of pink 😀
