Blues



From the small rock garden at Hedgerows, Chester NJ.  I think the blue stuff is bugle, which grows wild in my lawn, but I don't know what the pink flower is...  any ideas?

This time having "the blues" is a good thing. Very pretty! The pink things look to be a dianthus of some sort. I think.

Beautiful shot. Great colors. I really like the pink flowers.

Beautiful. I think Dianthus too, may be a reverted to original state.

Such a beautiful sweet garden. Love the colors.

I think it is thrift (Latin = armeria). A lovely combination.

Hi: Just dropping by - I like to visit your blog. I think the flower is called a 'pincushion'. menehune

Perfect combination - the baby pinks and blues!

I've said it before and I'll say it again, you've created a wonderfully serene place here that does a body good. Thank you.

I agree with Leora - it is Sea Thrift (also called Sea Pink), Armeria maritima. I used to have some growing in my old garden. It is a cute little happy flower. The blues and the pinks complement each other well.
