In a Vase on Monday: A Splash of Pink!

These grey dismal January days need brightening up!

A pot of “Pinks” (Dianthus) has been in flower almost non-stop since June. It is right up against the house wall in a very sheltered spot, but with another even colder freeze forecast for the end of this week I decided it was time to pick the last flowers.

Just to remind you that it is in fact deepest darkest winter, I added a Hellebore flower from another patio pot as well. The garden Hellebores aren’t in flower yet (but are covered in  promising buds).

Everything I look at seems to be pink at the moment – the pink tray was a present from my Mum years ago.  And do you remember French knitting? Well, I decided to see if I could recall how to do it after a friend gave me a knitting dolly as a fun Christmas gift, and as you can see in this picture the yarn is pink too!

And my latest Amaryllis to flower is also pink:

Amaryllis “Apple Blossom” (planted 25th November and flowering since 8th January)

Oh look, even my text colour is pink now! 😉

I’m linking to Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for her In a Vase on Monday meme. It will be challenging to find anything from the garden next week when temperatures drop, although it is quite green again at the moment after all our new year snow melted.

Hope you enjoy this splash of colour too, even if it is a bit too pink perhaps!

Have a pink good week!
