October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Get your pink on .... from flowers still growing in the garden.
Pinks, lavenders, mauves ... I love mixing them up. Tall lavender Phlox and dark pink Impatiens brighten up any corner of the garden.
Pink Yarrow is still hanging in there. Yarrow is such an easy care flower. They bloom happily in even the driest conditions.
Mums are definitely Autumn flowers. They come in a variety of colors, but I'm partial to the dark mauve ones.
These medium pink Million Bells Petunias have been blooming all summer and are still going strong.
Coneflowers are late season bloomers. They are just so bright and cheery.
My Mini Roses are my favorites ... especially my pink ones. I grow them in pots and overwinter them each year. This coming winter will be their 5th year.
As you can tell, I love pink flowers. Pink Roses are flowers often used to honor those who have lost their battle with Breast Cancer ... as well as the long term survivors of the dreaded disease ... and also those who are currently fighting the fight. Recently diagnosed with Stage 1 - Triple Negative Breast Cancer, I have joined the ranks of the fighters. I had a lumpectomy in September and today I had my first Chemo treatment.
I am proud to wear the Pink!! If you would like to read about my journey check out my blog Janie's Journey With Breast Cancer.
