Pretty in pink

pink8

Autumn is almost here – you can feel it in the air, the trees are turning golden and the nights are drawing in. Still, even with our short, rainy summer, nature is incredibly resilient and these little beauties have captured my eye, providing pops of pretty pinkness in my garden, around the neighbourhood and various places I’ve visited in the last month or so.

This one is from my garden, planted just last year and flowering for the first time this summer. I love the delicate blush pink colour and I took this picture after it had just stopped raining…..

This field of gorgeous cosmos is at Carnfunnock Country Park which I visited with family a few weeks ago (the picture of the pink hydrangeas was also taken there)

Another one from my garden – forgotten the name of this plant now but it never fails to flower every year.

This one also from my garden …a mallow plant that flowers continuously all summer..in fact, there’s no stopping it

I spotted this one at Ballyrobert Cottage Garden

 Loved the peachy pink hue of this beautiful rose bobbing in the breeze at Newforge House

Finally, just spotted this hydrangea in my neighbour’s garden this morning….as the rain stopped and the sun finally came out.
