In the Pink- #SundayStills #PhotoChallenge


This week’s Sunday Stills Challenge is one I couldn’t resist- PINK!

You can check out Terri Webster Schrandt’s post and join the challenge here.

We’re having a cool start to summer here in the Pacific Northwest, but the plants are loving the weather. My garden has exploded into a jungle! lol

Pink is one of my favorite colors in the garden. It catches the eye and shows off the beautiful flowers 🙂 This is a clematis. We planted it about eight years ago and it never fails to give us a nice spring display.

From apple blossoms, to bleeding hearts, and finally, my rhododendron you can see everything is coming up pink in my world.

Even Harley wears pink.

Pink isn’t just a color, it’s an attitude!

  1. Wow, Jacquie, your garden really did blow up! The pinks are stunning! I love that first image with the ceramic hummer dipping into the pink flowers! It’s raining here today in Spokane area as we speak! Wasn’t this time last year that it started getting HOT? Great to see your post for Sunday Stills!

      1. We really had no spring, Jacquie. We went from winter to hot. It is supposed to be 35 on Wednesday. I actually opened my pool in May this year and was in it, as it was in the high 20s. I love the sun and to get in the pool, so I can’t complain.

        1. Wow! I don’t think we’ve hit 20 yet this year, which is very unusual. Are you in the Great Lakes region with the humidity factor? If so, stay safe!

          1. I sure am, nestled right in the peninsula, about 40 minutes from Point Pelee. Very high humidity, the only thing I dislike about this area.

          2. Beautiful, I bet. We traveled through the Dryden area many years ago on our way to Quebec to see my dad’s family. I remember the thick green forests the most.

  4. Harley wears pink well! So pretty, Jacquie. My flowers seem to be struggling this year, and upper 90 temps for the next two weeks won’t help.

    1. It doesn’t really suit her temperament (she’s part Siamese, lol) but shows up well against her coloring.
      I don’t envy you those temperatures at all, Teri, but hope no big storms come your way. With that heat, they’re bound to be humdingers!

    1. It’s amazing how well they’re doing this year. We’ve had some of the coolest temps on record for June in Victoria.

      1. Here too, Jacquie. But the rain and cool temps seem perfect for your garden! The silver lining to spring’s slow arrival. Enjoy the blooms!

  8. Pink sure can be an attitude (fun quote and Harley wears it well) but for me / I like it in the garden and not so much clothes.
    Anyhow – your joyful and vibrant pinks are beautiful and the clematis had found a home to make it eight years!

      1. Yeah I think you noted that in your post (that you did not wear pink) – and I have enjoyed the pink posts this week –
        Very fun

  10. Absolutely beautiful, Jacquie. I remember the lushness of Salt Spring Island, where I lived for several months. Now I enjoy the simplicity of the desert. Quite the contrast. Thank you for sharing. 💖

    1. That is a big contrast! I can see the lure of the desert though, thanks to your beautiful photos.

    Love these. My grandma used to call bleeding hearts “ladies in the bathtub”. If you turn the flower for the white part is up and gently spread out the pink sides, it will look just like what it says.

    Very impressive, Jacquie! Climate differences have an enormous effect when it comes to gardens.

    1. Definitely. Last year we had a horrible drought that lasted pretty much all spring and summer. Many of the leaves on my plants actually burned from the heat!
      I hear a lot of the US is under a heat dome now. Is it affecting you, Pete?

        California has been in a drought five of the last six years. On top of that, gas hit $7.00 today.
