Pink and Purple Perfect Pair in the Garden. . .

Strolling thru the garden today and I couldn’t help but notice what a stunning pair pink and purple are together.

Although I didn’t actually plan this, I love the combination of pinks and purples in this grouping.

Pink Jupiters Beard, Purple Sweet Rockets, Pink Peonies, and Purple Clematis.

My Peonies just started opening up yesterday.  Can’t wait till there are more and I can cut a few!

I have three of these gorgeous double ruffled pink peonies.  Two of them put on a show and the third does absolutely nothing.  Thinking I will move it this Fall.  Guess it’s just not happy.

I love Clematis!  I have at least six of them and they are just starting to bloom.

More pink and purple combos.  Don’t ask me why?  But I like how this picture is fuzzy in the background and left front.

Jupiters Beard and Foxglove.

Sweet Williams and Variegated Iris.

Chives and Tri-Color Beech Tree.  Love that beautiful blue sky!

I was greeted with this stunning new Iris this morning.

Bleeding Heart and Dwarf Korean Lilac.  Just catching the tail end of the Bleeding Heart.  It has been absolutely gorgeous!

These Lilacs are planted at the back of our pergola.  The scent is heavenly!

I am always in awe of all the beauty the good Lord has provided for us.  Can’t help but feel close to him when you’re amongst his glorious creations!

hugs,

Jann

Your pinks and purples are gorgeous. What beautiful gardens you have!
Don't laugh but my peonies are just an inch out of the ground.
I think I'm going to cry after seeing yours...

Susan Clayton said...

The garden tours always have me humming a favorite hymn - I come to the garden alone,
While the dew is still on the roses,
And the voice I hear falling on my ear
The Son of God discloses. Refrain:
And He walks with me, and He talks with me,
And He tells me I am His own;
And the joy we share as we tarry there,
None other has ever known.

He speaks, and the sound of His voice
Is so sweet the birds hush their singing,
And the melody that He gave to me
Within my heart is ringing.
I’d stay in the garden with Him,
Though the night around me be falling,
But He bids me go; through the voice of woe
His voice to me is calling.

Looking lovely here!!!

Funny if it wasn't so cloudy today I would have done a pink and purple in the zen room covered porch post today - it's my theme colour, so got a kick it is yours too in your garden.

Your flowers are so healthy, no doubt from your expert care, Jann.

Hugs.

Love all your flowers....purple and pink seem to be the hot colors this summer too! Happy Weekend. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

Rose L said...

Pinks and purples are very complimentary to each other. Then toss in some blues, and a dash of red and yellow, and some white and ...well, I love a full rainbow in my gardens!

Maureen Wyatt said...

That is a great colour combo and I think I will copy it! Your gardens are beautiful.

Rachel Uchizono said...

Wow! Your flowers are beautiful! You can tell your garden loves you.

Stacey said...

You just reminded me that I need to plant clematis at this house. My hyacinth bean is blooming now. Hope yours does too. :)

Cynthia said...

Your garden is surely growing and doing so well. I seem to gravitate to purple flowers too.

Ann@A Sentimental Life said...

your peonies and iris are beautiful, mine are done now..I hate that but then that is why we appreciate them so! Thanks for stopping by to visit and thank you!

Marie Blackburn said...

Jann I couldn't agree more! I'm finally get my pots planted in pink and purple. Last year I steered away from my usual color scheme and went with purple and yellow and it just didn't have the same appeal. It feels so good to look out my window and see color again after that long winter and late spring.

Pink and purple is beautiful together! I need to get peonies next year. We are having our trees removed due to disease and I have a yard full of sun now! Many new things will work in it. Thanks for linking with Home Sweet Home!
