A Natural Pair - Pastel Pink Snapdragon/Pale Pink


Happy Thursday, sewers!
Today's blog post is brought to you by the
By Annie handbag zipper color:  Pale Pink.
I've paired it with a lovely pastel pink snapdragon.
I'm a pink kind of girl - any shade, any tone, I love pink!

Snapdragons (Antirrhinum majus) are a tender perennial that are
available in a variety of shades and colors.
They are also available in varying heights,
so shop around for the best match for your location.
They prefer cool, damp weather for the best blooms.
Mine re-appear in full beautiful color every spring here in Utah.
I do still have snapdragons blooming in the almost 100 degree heat of July,
but they are the most robust in spring and fall.

As you can see from the seed packet pictured below,
there are two different pink snapdragons.
One is a bolder, deeper pink color than the other.
The By Annie handbag zipper in pale pink matches up nicely with the lighter, pastel pink snapdragon.



Thank you so much for reading my blog.
Have a terrific afternoon and remember to stop and admire the flowers:

 “Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. (Luke 12:27, New International Version)

Next week's zipper color is Ivory.
