Mosaic Monday #49 - Pretty in Pink

Two years ago I discovered pink Queen Anne's lace growing on a couple of plants in a field and so I marked them with ribbon to collect the seeds. Last year when the flowers bloomed they were all white but I've just discovered this flower in bud in my butterfly garden and think I may have the treasured pink I was after.
For those who have never seen the pink version, isn't it pretty!
Three of my clematis that are pink; 'Queen Mother '(just planted last fall) on the left, 'Warsaw Nike' on the top and 'Josephine on the bottom. 
I apologize for the confusion of last week's link up as the 'random' option was chosen to see what it did. Heavens, every time I refreshed the page all the entries would change position.

    I decided, back to the roots, and you where the first host(ess) of a linkparty, and you are also the one who still I like most because of your very authentic and personal style to design your blog. LILA is the colour of our generation!

  2. Such pretty plants and colours, Judith! Especially the clematis 'Josephine' looks wonderful.
    I liked the random order of the links last week. The browser I use marks the links I have visited. Otherwise it would have been really confusing and difficult to try to visit everybody. It was an interesting experience though!
    Thank you for hosting MM and have a lovely week!

  3. Your pink Queen Anne's lace puts our plain white version definitely in the shade, so pretty.

    Have a fabulous week,
    all the best from Normandy.

  6. Quite a royal theme to your post this week with the beautiful Queen Anne's lace (& for me the first time to see pink!) Queen Mum and even an Empress in Josephine. All gorgeous :) Sorry my life was that chaotic I missed the fun of the random link up last week.
    Have a great week

  11. Such beautiful flowers. I never thought about collecting the seeds from wild plants but will sure give that a try.
    Thanks so much for hosting...the random option you chose last time is used by a lot of bloggers as it give each thumbnail the chance to move into first....and,as you say, ea thumbnail moves with refreshing.

  16. Our summer drought has turned my garden into a graveyard. When even a lavender dies, you know it is not a usual summer. So I am enjoying my tour this week of all your thriving green spaces and love the look of the Queen Anne's Lace - and what a regal name it has!

  17. Hi it is my first time here, thanks for hosting. I've only seen Queen Ann's lace only once yet, and yes it is white or to be exact greenish white. Another yes, that the pink one is really very beautiful.

  22. I've never seen pink Queen Anne's Lace, but it's very pretty. Love the clematis. It's a pink week! I rather enjoyed the random selection in the linky last week. Everything changed each time I came back, but the ones I visited were marked so it was easy to find the new ones.
    Have a great week, Judith! I've been away since Thursday and I noticed a post in my feed about the fairy gardens so I'll be sure to read that one as I catch up!

  24. Lovely pink 'lace'. We used to color them after picking with food coloring but to have them grow that way is an added bonus.

  36. Hi Judith! I have seen these pink Queen Anne's Lace growing wild every now and then...they are gorgeous! I love the intricate lacy designs of these beauties...one of my favorite flowers, although some consider it a weed. Your photos and mosaics are just so beautiful too. Have a good week and thanks, as always, for hosting :)

  44. Hello Judith, I love your pretty clematis. And the Queen Anne's lace is lovely. I do not think I have ever seen that color before, only the white. Lovely images. I was away and was not able to link up my post, see you next week. Have a happy day and new week ahead!

  45. I am so late on arrival, sis is in the hospital, tons of work on Bald Eagle and Red Shouldered Hawk albums for landowners and just making my way. Oh such beauty in a pink Queen Anne's Lace flower, such a sweet, pleasant surprise. I am thinking pink, or cream white, they surely are covered in Chiggers ;) yet oh so beautiful~

  46. I am finding so little time to do blog reading lately and I'm really late to reading about your pretty pink. I don't think I've ever seen Queen Anne's lace in pink before but clever of you to collect the seeds. It was my mom's favorite flower. Not sure why we consider it in the weed family. Sorry for your blogger host problems. It's a wonder what all goes on behind the scenes to give us blog headaches! Hope you are having a good week.

  47. I like the soft pink Queen Anne's lace. I've seen soft pink yarrow along the road here. Your clematis collection is lovely, especially the Josephine one. Thanks for visiting. Enjoy the summer weather.

  49. Dearest Judith; I've never seen Queen Anne's lace; such GORGEOUS pink one and your first zoomed picture helped me to know how beautiful it is♡♡♡ Your three clematis look SO pretty; I like pink but Warsaw Nike is my favorite as we think purple is noble color in Japan♪

    Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in Canada, xoxo Miyako*
