On one side I have Bright Pink petunias blooming. They were given to me as seeds from my girls.
Can you believe that all these blooms are from just three petunia plants? This pic is from when I planted my little seedlings. It's so satisfying to see go back and see what difference one summer makes!
If you look closely, there are also two little rose bushes there in the process of being smothered by all that Bright Pink. They are Light Pink bourbon 'Souvenir de la Malmaison' roses.

I also decided to just go ahead and have one Mainly Pink Garden. Sadly, it could also be known as Pink Plant Killing Hill.
Most of the plants in this rather sad picture were not there at the beginning of summer, as I have had to replace several fallen Pink plants. The Killing Hill has killer drainage issues. The garden is on a steep hill and sits on a vein of clay so thick that not even my trusty pickaxe helps very much. I managed to dig a hole and let it fill up with rain to see how fast it drained there. Several days later I finally shlepped out the water myself with a large cup.

I think I might be Pinked out after all of this...
