Hmm I think I peaked too soon with these challenges! Yellow was a very easy colour for a garden photographer. Pastel less so, but I have managed to find a few photos for this challenge. I hope you enjoy them.
Spring and Autumn seem to be the best time for pastels in my garden.
One of my favourite spring flowers – the native primrose.
And a beautiful tulip.
These Japanese anemones grow at the bottom of my garden – a place that gets little sun and where I find difficult to grow flowers. These were purchased from a bargain bench and I didn’t know what they were; only that they needed rescuing. They are a bit of a rogue in that the more you try to dig them out the more the roots break and they flourish. They do provide a wonderful late summer flower and the flowers are so delicate and beautiful to photograph. This one flower was unusual in that it was facing away from the sun unlike its neighbours, giving me some great photo opportunities.
You always think of Autumn leaves to be quite bright colours and indeed many of them are, but there are also some lovely subtle pastel shades.
This climbing hydrangea grows at the front of our house which is West facing. So as well as lack of sun it also has to contend with roots from large trees. Despite that it produces lovely green leaves during the summer which turn a lovely pale yellow for about a week before falling. You have to be quick to get the photo.
I will finish with a lovely sunset sky behind our silver birch.
