Shades of Pink- #SundayStills #FlowerPhotography


This week’s Sunday Stills Challenge from Terri Webster Schrandt is PINK. You can see Terri’s photos and join in here.

My garden is a riot of color right now, how is yours doing?

The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just on the body, but the soul.

Alfred Austin

The above photo is the peony I tried to get to bloom for years with no success. DH took over its care last year and voila, success!

Here’s a few more pictures from the garden.

I’m loving the outdoors, the scents sweep me away!

To see a world in a grain of sand and heaven in a wild flower Hold infinity in the palm of your hand and eternity in an hour.

      1. I am bordering on Sub-tropical. Before the devastating fires, I had rainforest species returning to the deep gullies. All gone now and will take another 25 years before they start to show again

        1. That’s sad. It must have been a horrifying time. Are your drought conditions any better?

        1. I’m good, thank you. I quit school at the start of grade ten, so I missed the worst of the heavy exams, but my daughter is going for a PHD in biology and gets stressed over them- I don’t envy you guys, lol
