It's PINK SATURDAY. My friend Beverly of How Sweet The Sound is again hosting a PINK SATURDAY . Check out her blog and visit all the PINK posts today.
Years ago my mother told me that her grandmother always used to have a patch of "pinks" in her garden. My mother was very fond of her grandmother. Her relationship with her grandmother was stronger than her relationship with her mother.
When I was trying to plan what I wanted in my little garden I remembered my mother telling me about the "pinks" that my great grandmother had. It took me a bit of time to figure out just what "pinks" were. I have a friend at school who is quite the gardener and she told me that they were dianthus plumarius. I bought a few seed packets and planted them in my garden in honor of my great grandmother. (Britt if you are reading this I have some seeds for you if you want them). Each year when they bloom I think of my mother telling me about her grandmother's garden.
