Purple Rain of Flowers
My Garden Blogger Bloom Day post this month is all about the pinks and purples -- from weigela to dianthus -- it is one big explosion of pretty with a capital P. This garden says, "Grrrl." Sure, I have a few yellows popping up like my daisies, water iris, and zinnias, but they don't hold my attention as these pinky purples do.
And did I mention the scents? I'm in love with the bubble-gum iris and swoon as I walk by them. I like to stick my whole face in the peonies and breathe deeply, so fresh and clean. My roses are just coming on now too giving off delicate perfumes. The best though are the spicy groundcover geraniums, just brush by and you are transported to foreign lands.
