Pretty in Pink

Welcome to Pink Saturday. It's celebration time... Happy Birthday Pink Saturday!!
It's been a while since I've participating in this wonderful event. Hosted by our gracious hostess Beverly each week for us to show off our pinks.

Outside the shop I have some beautiful brick planter boxes we put in a few years back. At the corner of one I planted the ever blooming geranium. With each year that passes it grows a little larger and the blooms are a little bigger. Behind the geranium you'll find cone flowers, not yet blooming, but by the looks of things it won't be long. They've helped fill in a lot of areas where I had previously lost some plants.

The small squirrel planter is almost covered with blooms, I think he needs to be moved just a tad. lol

I also wanted to share the gorgeous buds and blooms of the pink peony bushes. I took these photos last week before the heavy rains moved in on Tuesday. I'm so glad I did, the blooms are now gone until next season. I think this looks pretty enough to be used for a boutonniere. I'll let you enjoy their beauty.

Again, my Murphy dog is always close at hand.
I hope you're having the best weekend ever. What are some of your plans? I would love to hear about them. Me? Well, I plan to start trimming on the bushes and "hopefully" get some fishing in. lol As always, thank you for stopping by and saying hello.

We wish all of you a wonderful and safe Memorial Weekend!!

Always Amazed

What a glorious weekend it promises to be. The sun is shining, the birds are singing and my grandson is coming for the weekend. It can't get any better than that. :-))
While enjoying my morning cup of coffee on the patio outside my shop this morning, I was amazed at how much white there is around our home. The beauty against the blue sky was incredible.

I'm not sure where this rose bush came from. My girlfriend and I were talking about it just yesterday. I've planted all the flowers and bushes around our home and this certainly wasn't one of them. I'm wondering if it's a multi-floral rose that grow in the fence rows that all the farmers detest? If any of you know I would love for you to share what you think it is.
The white peony was blooming as well, almost looks as though it's been hit with a bit of pink.

As always Murphy is close by. He is just the best companion a gal can have. :-))
As always, thank you for stopping by and saying hello. I hope you all have a fabulous weekend.
