My New Color Scheme

It all started with some pink glads I bought that bloomed orange...hmmm. What to do? I had started to plant a few warm color toned roses on one side of my garden....a pale yellow here, a pinkie peach there. As I said in my previous post I started noticing a new emerging color scheme with pinks and oranges. So when these bloomed last summer I tagged them and moved them later on in the season over to the warmer rose border. Pretty soon I found my self being drawn to these colors and started purchasing plant material to add to the picture. Above I just planted this new day lily called Persian Market

Bright pink zinnia's and a new climbing rose called Soaring Spirits named in honor of 9-11
Here is my attempt so far at this color scheme.
We are leaving tomorrow for vacation...not sure when if I will get to post...We are heading to Portland for the weekend to help with the grands while mom and dad attend a wedding. Then off to our beloved Cannon Beach with just the hubby for a few days. We will have to make a side trip to St. Paul on our way home. Hehehe I have roses waiting for me at Heirloom Roses :) I will fill you in on the goodies when I get back.

You know...some of my favorite flowers are zinnias..simple to grow, and so lovely to look at and wonderful to cut and share.

Thank you so much for your sweet comments, they are heartfelt and so very much appreciated!

Have a wonderful vacation~

Hope you have a great time and will look forward to pics on yur return. The flower colour scheme is lovely. 100 degrees is a bit much to say the least. We have had just mid 60's for a week now. And lots of rain.

Enjoy your time away! How could you not with time being spent with those beautiful grandgirlies?! It's always good to get away alone, too. I have a feeling that you'll be ready for the rest.
