I've been on a strange pink kick recently. Not that I've chosen to wear pink, but I have been noticing it and loving it lately. I've been planting a large perennial bed at house this year, and nearly everything I've chosen to go in it is a certain pink. Not a pale, fragile pink, but more of a lipstick (another thing I never wear) pink.
I love pink paired with colors that sort of cut through the sweetness like navy or saddle brown. Maybe with I could actually work pink into my wardrobe if I could tone it down with more drab items.
I recently did a Girl's Day Out Picnic over at kitchendaily.com inspired by pink, specifically by a beautiful flowered vintage table cloth I've had for years. Check it out if you get the chance. I'm hoping to use these ideas with my real life girlfriends some day soon.
On an only marginally related note (since I've shown two geraniums above)-- did you know that you could take geraniums inside in the winter and either place in a pot near a sunny window, or remove all dirt from the roots and store them in a paper bag in your basement? I'm trying to buy as few annuals as possible, and was pleased to find out this fact recently after buying the bottom annuals on sale. I may try that out this year. There is an interesting thread on the topic right here.
