Buzzing Around Pink Saturday

Welcome! We're so glad you stopped by today. It's another full day of beautiful pinks. Lot's and lots of pinks. Be sure to swing by Beverly's at How Sweet the Sound for a full list of participants.This week with the temperatures being almost Fall like, lets take a short stroll around the yard to see what Pink we can find. I couldn't resist trying to get this shot of the bee buzzing the Forgetmenot's. My Forgetmenot's are just beautiful this year. As I've said to a lot of friends, I haven't purchased a flower this year. No... not one, those around our place are all volunteers this year. As you can see they haven't disappointed us by showing off their beauty. I'll show you more of those in a future post. It's a bit of a metamorphosis to watch how they've grown this year. I was fortunate a few years back to receive an envelope full of seeds, they've pretty well taken over an area. Don't you love when that happens?
This is a Knock Out rose bush my grandson and I purchased last spring early. He had the best time digging the hole for this beauty. I have to tell you, these cameras do some mighty strange things at times. This is actually red in person, very red. Maybe it's just the pixels on my screen..but it sure looks pink to me. lol
As you can see. Very pink.
This is a bloom from the Rose of Sharon Bush. They are starting to look a bit on the sad side after all the storms we've had. I felt fortunate to be able to get a few remaining shots.
A close up for you.
And last but not least the bush the above bloom is on. You can see the bush is a bit mis-shaped now. This is the last bush I have to prune after all the winds we've had. Hopefully, a good pruning and next year it will be prettier than ever.
I hope you've enjoyed your short tour with us today. We've sure enjoyed your stopping by. Beverly, many thanks for hosting another fun filled day full of Pink.
I'm off to Beverly's to see all the other beautiful pink. See you there.. hugs ~lynne~

Beautiful pinks Lynne! Is that rose really red? It looks like a gorgeous shade of pink to me! I see the Energizer Bunny is still going -- pruning bushes with everything else you have going on! You are one amazing lady! laurie

Lynne, those are some beautiful shots. That Rose of Sharon reminds me so much of my grandmother as she had them in her yard during all of my childhood.

Happy Pink Saturday!

Beautiful pink/red blooms in your garden. I love plants that self-seed.....it's so much fun to discover a new plant that has come up on it's own.

Best Wishes,

Had the Grands for a few days so I am a day late and a dollar short for Pink Saturday! We just had so much fun and time got away from me☺

But, I didn't want to miss all the pinkness that brings sunshine to my weekend. And, another cool, sun-less day. My gardens look horrible this year. Nothing is growing...sigh.

So, your sweet blog post is cheering me up! Thanks so much for giving me something pretty to look at other than the dark clouds outside my kitchen window.
