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!!

Happy Pink Saturday, Lynne Pat. We've been pinking together for over a year now. Thank you for everything you do to make Pink Saturday special.

Your plants looks so pretty and healthy. I planted peonies, but no blooms this year. I am hopeful for next year.

You have been in my prayers.

Hi Lynne,

As always, I enjoyed the message you left on my blog. I love hearing from you. I doubt if any of the New Jersey Housewives, which I just happened to watch today, own any of those houses. What cut-throats they are. I think their houses are even bigger and cost more, I doubt very much that they'd buy on The Canal, they seem more like Ocean Front Owners.

I'm afraid the only Peonies I've seen this weekend are the hot pink, silk ones that I washed and re-arranged in our bedroom. We didn't have any special plans for the weekend, so I made cleaning our Master BR, Bath, and the porch off the bath, my cleaning project for the weekend, although we are going out to eat tomorrow. That's if I can still move after all the cleaning. ;)

Our area, becomes very busy this weekend,so we tend to stay close to home. My husband couldn't believe all the yard sales he saw on a trip out to the store yesterday. It's the time of year that summer home owners are looking for a good bargin to use in their rentals.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful,flowers with us, you do take great pictures, I wish mine came out that good.

Wishing you peace and better days for your husband. May God Bless Him and watch over him. And of course you.
