Color My World~Pink #PBColorMyWorld

Yum
The Project Beautiful bloggers chose the color PINK for this month's featured color.  Pink is a pale red which gets its name from the flower pink (dianthus.)  The color pink can be innocent, seductive or feminine, just depending on what colors are associated with it.  Pink was used mostly for flesh colors in painting but became popular in the 18th century for clothing.  One of my favorite paintings, Pinkie, hung in my daughter's bedroom when she was a girl (Sir Thomas Lawrence.)

This month our post are mostly from the garden, and one from the sea!  You will love these beautiful pink posts.  Click on the links to read each more fully.

1.  From Lee at A Guide to Northeast Gardening wrote a gorgeous piece on Hellebores in the winter garden.  You will learn a lot about this gorgeous flower.


2.  Lynne from Sensible Gardening wrote about pink perennials (these are the flowers that come back every year.)  She has a lot of different options and I am in love with them all.  Pink is my favorite color of flower!


3.  Shoshi from Blooming Secrets has a lovely post on the color pink throughout the year.  I chose this set of pink spring flowers because I love each and every one of them.  So gorgeous!



4.  And then there is my pink post, from the sea, which you will remember is the Panfried Salmon recipe I shared earlier this month!  If you've tried it, let me know! (my pink fish looks rather orange!)
