Pretty in Pink!

These beautiful flowers have caught the attention of many Fearrington guests, including some friendly butterflies! These tall Zinnias were boasting their bright pink petals this week.

The darker pink shades are called Tudor Rose, Violet Queen and Purple Dahlia. The light pink shaded flowers are called Miss Willmott. What sweet names for such pretty flowers!

Take a stroll through Jenny’s garden to see these photogenic blooms!
