Variations of Pink

Today's post is brought to you by the colour PINK.


Who knew (apart from artists, graphic designers and webmasters) that there were so many shades of pink? More hues or tones than I can name, each pinker than the last...


After a couple of days shooting the azaleas I was seeing pink.


Salmon pink?


 Ballerina slipper pink?


Cerise?  


Hollywood Rose?


Then the rhododendrons began to open. Pale pink...


Lavender pink. Lavender rose?

 

And deep pink... Fuchsia, Magenta?


Or a combination of pinks - hot and cool



The flowering azalea hedge, a riotous display of... Tea Rose? Persian Rose? Maybe just Rose?

I love this time of year when the yard blooms with a hundred or more variations on the colour pink.

Gorgeous - not a weed in sight! ;-) And I LOVE the peony. Wow.
