Pinks and Purples

Yes, I know I haven't written in a long time.  First it was winter and a very long one, and then my husband had health issues which took a lot of my time and energy.  Besides all of that, the gardening season is a month behind schedule. The ornamental trees are done blooming now and at last we have flowers in the garden.

I took a walk around yesterday with my camera and noticed that almost everything is pink or purple.  I began to wonder if I chose to plant these colors in perennials, or is it that they are more prevalent in the spring/early summer?  Anyway, take a walk with me and see what I see. (please ignore, the bare ground.  I don't have fresh mulch in yet.)
