Blooming This Week ~ Pink Porch Flowers

This year I decided to use only pink flowers on my front porch

I also thought I would use pink annuals in the flower bed across the front of the house.

It's now well into summer and I must admit I've had mixed results.

The porch...

Its pink but not PINK!


The impatiens baskets have the largest flowers I've ever seen and still not much impact.

I plant these bacopa every year, usually in white, and they always look so straggly. 

The pink is so pale they might as well be white. 

Next year I will try something different in these clay pots.

The bed of pink impatiens I planted across the front of the house is struggling in the heat and drought. 


Maybe something new next year...?

This is my favorite every year no matter what I plant in it.

Guard kitty is always on guard.
