Let's see the world through pink … flowers
Or at least let's create this pink world in our garden. Pink is the color of romantics, it gives hope and joy, adjusts to spiritual harmony with the outside world, calms, creates a feeling of comfort.

Many artists have created amazing, unforgettable gardens with their own hands, which have become living works of art. Perhaps the most famous is the impressionist painter Claude Monet's garden at Giverny.
The master chose the plants himself and in such a way that every season of the year the garden would dress in its own unique color. The result is an amazing combination of fruit trees and many flowers with a rich palette of colors. Thanks to this garden, many paintings have appeared.

Our garden plots were originally intended for fruit, berry, vegetable and flower plants. In recent years, more and more gardeners give preference to the decorative style, and each of us may well create our own pink corner in the common multifunctional garden, where this particular color will dominate throughout the season.
Some splashes of white flowers will emphasize the tenderness and grace of the main color. To make the colored "strokes" brighter and more expressive, several specimens of each species or variety should be planted side by side, usually 3-5, and more ground cover and bulbous ones. At the same time, the height of plants is taken into account, placing undersized plants in the foreground, medium-sized plants in the second, and tall ones in the background.
It is important to arrange and arrange the plants according to their requirements for growing conditions: light, moisture, soil. When flowers are in "their" places, they feel great, bloom profusely, and it is more convenient to care for them. When planting perennials, it is reasonable and economical to use a long-acting complex fertilizer (a pinch of crystals is enough to feed an average plant for 2–3 years). All you need is the usual spring feeding for all your garden plants.
Pink flowers of various shades will harmoniously combine with flowering fruit trees, especially with pink-flowered apple varieties - hybrids from the Nedzwiecki apple tree.
Under the bushes of wildly blooming lilacs of all shades of lilac-pink, white and purple, you can place a border of delicate pink daisies and primroses of various types and varieties of pink colors: ordinary, toothed (denticulate), Julia's primrose with flowers of intense purple-pink color. Interesting new varieties of primrose auricula with bell-shaped flowers resembling gloxinia: they are decorated with a white border and the same pharynx.
Japanese primroses, Florinda have multi-tiered inflorescences. One of the last to bloom is Siebold's primrose with umbrellas of lilac-pink fragrant flowers, similar to phlox. For primroses and daisies, semi-shady places with moist fertile soil are suitable. These plants multiply easily by dividing the bushes into separate rosettes, and this should be done as the clumps grow. They can be transplanted throughout the season, even during flowering.
Among the light-loving ground cover species, the subulate phlox, obrietia, have pink, lilac flowers. Armeria seaside from compact outlets throws out low peduncles with capitate bright pink inflorescences. Flowering occurs from late spring to early summer.

Among stonecrops, there are species with white-pink flowers and even leaves that create dense colored rugs or pillows on rocky areas. These species require light, neutral, well-drained soil and minimal long-term fertilization.
As for bulbous crops, now it is not difficult to find any palette of magnificent hyacinths, tulips, muscari, including pink, of all kinds of shades and shapes of flowers. In a transparent shade, the sugar beetle will change the color of pink, purple and blue flowers on one inflorescence, moreover, its matte leaves are noticeably distinguished by small white “splashes” among the general greenery.
The dicenters are beautiful and exceptional bloom with bizarre pink, lilac flowers from late May to autumn. The exquisite gorgeous dicentra, better known in everyday life as the "broken heart", already in May scatters its elegant thin branches, strewn with heart-shaped flowers with a white "tear". All dicenters have elegant grayish-bluish leaves with carved plates.
At the very end of May, the "savages" take the flowering relay, who feel great in the garden and fill the pause before the peonies bloom. This is a dioecious smooch, blooming wildly with bright pink numerous flowers for almost two months!
Marsh, forest, meadow geraniums with carved leaves on long stalks embody the fairy tale of a scarlet flower in reality. River Gravilat sets off bright pinks with muted brownish-purple and warm pink tones, towering over matte foliage with lantern flowers looking down.
In early June, aquilegia blooms, which surprises with an incredible number of varieties of any color, including pink shades. The size of its two- and three-colored hybrid flowers is almost twice as large as usual, and the shape of the double flowers is more reminiscent of fashionable fluffy skirts with sharp fancy edges. Aquilegia have such a rich palette of colors that with their help you can easily move on to creating corners of lilac, blue and purple in many subtle shades.
In addition, their leaves, carved with a wax bloom, collecting droplets of crystal clear water after rain or dew, unusually decorate the flower garden throughout the season (you just need to remember to cut off the fading heads). In June, a pink-lilac cloud of small fluffy flowers blooms basil aquifer. In terms of size, leaf shape and requirements for growing conditions, it is very similar to aquilegia (catchment). These species love partial shade, moist nutritious soils, as well as astilbe, which begin to bloom in July.
