Pastel Power

IMG_4126This Pelargonium “Pink Capricorn” was a gift from Phlomis Phlo (after some extremely unsubtle hinting on my part).  It has thrived in a pot in the half-sun of the steps leading up to our small and imperfectly formed garden.  Perched here the fragrant leaves are handy for a quick fondle on route to bring the washing in or even (deep breath) a little weeding.  Despite our disappointing summer it has grown well.  This afternoon it was looking particularly lovely set against the whitewashed wall behind.

I am becoming increasingly concerned by my recent leanings towards the Barbara Cartland region of the spectrum.  Perhaps my Darth Vader days are over.  Pastel Power here we come!
