A little study in blue and pink. There are some beautiful lavender colours and these two: Hidcote (darker bloom) and Munstead, look very good together. The gentle pink of the Wild Rose (Dog Rose, Rosa canina) fulfills my expectation of a balanced and complementary composition.
Hidcote, Munstead, are Lavender blues
Some are Dark; some lighter hues
With spindly stalks and gentle flower
Lack the dog rose’s pulling power
But pink and blue together give
A splendid show whilst florets live
