Pink Blooms

Phlox | Creative Cain CabinIt seems like I’ve had a lot of flower posts lately but I guess that’s what’s happening this time of year. Flowers blooming, bees buzzing, gardens producing, and summer sun. 

Phlox | Mason Jar | Porch Sitting | Creative Cain Cabin My mission was to wander around my garden and the guest homes garden and take some photos. I noticed everything blooming right now was pink, so pink became my theme. I guess I never realized how many pink flowers I have. I am now wondering if I gravitate towards that particular color for flowers. 

Phlox | Creative Cain CabinThat makes me think I need to add some new colors. I don’t think I have a single flower in white so I will make that my goal when I’m out dividing from friends gardens. The other color I lack in is orange, but I do seem to have a lot of yellow. 

Pink Blooms | Creative Cain CabinThese are the pink bloomers that I have right now….cosmos, phlox, coneflower, zinnia, phlox, knockout rose. Now go out and check your garden and tell me if you seem to plant a particular flower color more than any other, I’m curious to hear.

  1. I love pink flowers, too. For some reason they seem so soothing. I am happy for every flower post I see. They keep me in this wonderful season. xo Laura

    1. Laura so glad you’re not tired of flower posts. Soon it will be fall if you can believe that.

  2. Love all the pink around your home Dawn. So pretty. I seem to have a lot of pink in my garden too. I just think it is a bright and cheerful color and really pops in the summer sun. Have a great Sunday.

    1. Kris, yes you do have pretty pink in your gardens and it’s lovely.

    1. Kris, I am a flip flop girl and have them in every color 🙂

    Pink and purple seem to be most of the colors I have..I do love my yellow Black Eyed Susans and Black Eyed Susan vines too..You and Claudia can show me all of the flowers you want..it won’t be that long until they are gone again..boo-hoo..lol

    1. Nancy, My gardens are blooming at strange times this year so I haven’t shown the whole thing at one time. It seems like there has been a lot of green this year instead of blossoms. We just had a bad storm go through and I think it may have knocked down all my sunflower plants, and they haven’t even bloomed yet 🙁

  4. Right now my garden is a mix of pink and yellow. Only a little splash of blue left as the last of the delphiniums and larkspur go to seed. Monkshood and the Black Knight butterfly bush are adding a tad of purple. No matter what color, I am enjoying the garden so much. I long for the bright color in the depths of winter snow, but that is why I take so many photos, I can look back in January at them and know that under all that white, cold stuff lying on the ground is a beautiful garden sleeping.

    1. Pamela you have so many that I don’t have. I will have to look into a bigger variety. I can never get a butterfly bush to live here but I would love delphinium and larkspur.

  5. I have a real mish mash or colors in my garden. Lots of pink too. Your flowers are so pretty. And I enjoyed your garden post previously too. Nice looking veg!!

    1. Kris, it is amazing how veggies can look pretty in pics, lol. I need to add more color to the garden if I can fit it into my schedule.

  6. Morning, Dawndie! Oh, I love your pretty pink blooms – especially the cone flower. I used to grow those when I lived in New Mexico. Alas I don’t have a garden at the moment, but soon! 😉 I love your beautiful photography – always.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia 😉

    1. Shelia, I had only one lonely coneflower bloom this year. I think they have been choked out by other plants.

  7. Oh such pretty flowers Dawn..what a great way to start the day:) Have a good one.

    1. Thank you Debbie 🙂 Have a wonderful week.

    1. Thank you Carol your vaca looks magnificent.

  8. Dawn, I love your beautiful photos of your flowers. I just planted some coneflowers in the Cheyenne variety in various colors of orange. I guess I’m attracted more to red and orange flowers, but I have a lot of pink ones planted near my mom’s apartment because pink is her favorite flower color.

    1. Jane I saw the Cheyenne variety this year they are beautiful, just stunning, the color are almost unreal. I would say red is my least favorite flower, I lean more towards what your mom likes.
