October Pinks

Although most of the "October colour" we're seeing is the typical fall reds, oranges and yellows of the maples, the yellows and  golds of the birches and copper browns of the oaks, when I look in my yard, I'm seeing pink! Yes PINK! My large hanging basket of geraniums on the deck is still blooming like crazy and in the back perennial bed there are loads of blooms on the cleome, Japanese anemones and Japanese toad lily. The fall asters, which are getting lots of love from the bees, are adding lots of pink to the side bed, and out front the two hanging pots of rieger begonias continue to bloom profusely. Maybe this is Mother Nature's way of reminding us that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month...  Lovin' all the pink!! (Don't forget to get your mammies grammed, ladies!)
I'm linking to Mosaic Monday, now hosted by Judith at Lavender Cottage. Be sure to stop by.



Peace,
Linda

Those are wonderful crazy pinks! I have the most amazing fuchsia coloured garden asters and love them to pieces. Much better than the overdone orange. I'm so over orange this autumn...lol.

I love your pink mosaics. They are a lovely reminder of Breast Cancer Awareness month. The flowers are really hanging on aren't they?

Some pretty pink flowers in your garden, and maybe they are still blooming to honour breast cancer awareness this month.
Thank you for linking to Mosaic Monday.

Hi Linda,

Your mosaics are gorgeous -- what healthy-looking flowers you have!! Pink is truly one of my favorite colors, and that holds true for flowers, as well. I love the cleomes, the mums, and the begonias. You're right -- this is a great reminder for breast cancer awareness month. :)

Have a wonderful week!

Hugs,

Denise
