Not too Shabby

I just realized a week has gone by since my last posting. Where has this week gone to and left me behind? Wow!!! It's a good thing I realized it's time for Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly from How Sweet the Sound.

"The best and most beautiful things in the world must be felt with the heart."

-Helen Keller

It seems lately all I've shown you are outside shots of pinks, this week is no exception. As I was outside working on another project I noticed the beautiful pink spirea's blooming up by my baby barn. I don't believe I've seen them as pretty as I have this year. It must be do to all the early rains we've had. They are full to over flowing. Let's take a closer look.

I think the color against the gray of the barn is incredible. Mr. Rooster seems to be proud to be associated with something as stunning as the pink spirea. :-))

The honeysuckle to the left is trying to invade the spirea along with the small bush to the right. They seem to be giving the spirea a big 'ole hug.

Beautiful pinks ranging from light to dark are a haven for all the bees that come to visit.
As the evening sun starts to go down I'm once again in awe of the beauty of the spirea. If only a few other flowers would step to the plate.. lol

Beverly, thank you for hosting this event each week. Now, I'm off to see all the other beautiful pinks...
