By request I have put down my trowel and washed the dirt from my hands so I can share a little of my creative world with you. The Creative Gardener was created out of the desire to combine all of my passions. Gardening, teaching, designing, writing, decorating and treasure hunting. This all takes place at my little red house with the white pickett fence surrounded by my garden that grows wild and happy!

The Pinks Of Summer
While touring the garden today I noticed that there was more pinks blooming in my garden then I was aware of. We had been having some pretty warm weather, I say had because today was just perfect, in the low 80s with a cool breeze and the next few days look to be a repeat. I don't spend much time in the garden when it warms up so I hadn't notice how some plants had burst into bloom showing some beautiful pinks.

The bees have been busy in our garden, we have several different kinds of bees working all the flowers. I love watching the big black bumble bees that seem to come out in the evenings. I haven't captured a photo of them yet, but this little guy was very photogenic.

Holly Hocks do not mind the heat and seem to need very little water. They are good at producing an abundance of seeds for the next season. Isn't this just a beautiful pink?

I had to get some cleaning done around the house today and as I walked in and out of the bedroom I kept noticing how the Rose of Sharon was peaking into the window. I had to stop and take a photo from the inside out. I love waking up in the morning to the sun shining in the window and these pretty pink flowers swaying in the breeze.
