Mother Nature's Fireworks

We are all looking forward to enjoying some fireworks
in celebration of the upcoming holiday.
Just in time for the festivities, 
Mother Nature has sent up her own plumes of color.  


The tag when I purchased this plant last year indicated
this was "Peach Blossom" Astilbe.
The image on the tag shows a plant with coral coloration.
But the plants in my garden have pale pink blooms.  



The color is not what I expected
but the astilbe plants look lovely just the same
paired with this piece of garden art.
You may enjoy reading my June 2012
post titled Faux Tablescape.


One more bit of pink to share this week...
 The impatiens seem quite happy hanging
 in the corner of the decorative garden fence.


Showing my pink with Pink Saturday at How Sweet the Sound.

Until next time, live and love well.

I love the peach blossom too and have it. It reads very pale pink to me. Aren't gardens just such a joy?! Happy pink summer

Hi Debra,
Your pink blooms are so pretty. I like those soft pink astilbes, mine aren't quite as striking as yours are. I was hoping to see a postcard or two, you have me spoiled!
Have a great weekend!

Oh I actually love those- have never seen anything but bright red or bright gold - had no idea there were softer colours out there in this plant.

I had them a few times but they didn't do well.

You are so right- they look like fireworks!

have a wonderful weekend, thanks for your visit!!

Your flowers are lovely...and I have a similar piece of garden art made from pink dishes! I featured if last week or the week before...it could be a sister to your beauty! Thanks for stopping by Riverside Studios and hope your week is Pink and your Fourth of July is star-studded!

Your unexpected Astible flower is such a soft color and gentle plant that I find it soothing to look at. Happy 4th of July!

Beautiful pinks Debra! I love Astibles. I have a red and white one. Yours certainly was not a disappointment.
hugs,
