Next up in the Trooping of the Colour we have the Pink Platoon which is a bit thin on the ground at this time of year. Geraniums, Pelargoniums and Fuschias are in the front rank but there are also one or two roses and a lovely pink Sidalcea which is a new purchase.
I am delighted with the pink Marguerites which I rescued from the End of Season Sale shelf at the Garden Centre. They were looking at me quite pitifully, begging to be taken home, so I did. After a short back and sides and a bracing tonic they are now putting on a good show outside my kitchen window. I like to think that this demonstrates my nurturing side and compensates for the Orange Begonia Incident.
