I have been creating since I was a little girl. I am happy to say that having my own website has opened up a whole new world for me. Trying new mediums is a joy and sometimes a real eye opener. I sell what I create on etsy and my website, someplaceinthyme. If you have questions,please email me at cpeterson72@q.com. I welcome new blog friends and am honored if you find my little piece of heaven interesting enough to follow.

HAPPY PINK SATURDAY EVERYONE

Welcome to Pink Saturday, and lets give a big thankyou to Beverly from How Sweet The Sound for making this possible. Today I am taking you back into my garden for some floral viewing. The summer heat is beginning to creep in and so I don't know how much longer I will be able to enjoy these blooms. Please enjoy

Just look at that!
Perfect in all it's beauty.
Even red needs some credit too, don't you think?
Here's a bouquet ready to go, just look at the pink.

Just a touch of pink, but look at the petal count...You can't have enough roses, can you?

You should smell these!!!
Honeysuckle over a trellis. Sorry about the potting soil in the back, been busy and didn't clean up, not very Pink Saturday of me. :)
Southern Honeysuckle....oh my, they don't bloom for long in this heat, but you should know I am out smelling them several times a day when they do.

You can smell this Jasmine all through my house, so sweet and heavenly.

Geraniums are always great for a little color just about anywhere. These are in a statuary basket on my front porch.
A pretty orange hybiscus.......
I don't think you can get much brighter pink than this. So pretty

Just look at the colors in the middle of this one! WOW!!

Bet you didn't know there was a desert hybiscus flower!

Beautiful Yellow desert Bird of Paradise.......I love yellow, did I mention that?!

Hi Char.....What a beautiful tour of your garden!! I know about that heat and the wind, too. Flowers have a hard time, but our roses always seemed to make it!

Happy Pink Saturday!

Happy Pink Saturday. Your blog is just such a delight to visit each week. Of course, all of the pink goodies always warm my ♥. This week everyone seems to be out-doing themselves!

Wishing you, and all those close to your ♥, a purr-fect weekend filled with joy, peace and gracious living.

My gosh, I'm still waiting for my tulips to bloom and you're looking at the end of the season.

Your garden is just awash with gorgeous colour. The bird of paradise is a fabulous flower, I've never seen one before. Have a wonderful Pink Saturday

You're right, one can never have too many roses.....or hibiscus, or geraniums, or honeysuckle etc. The fragrance, in your garden, must be absolutely heady. Enjoy all the wonderful blooms. From one gardener, to another....happy pink Saturday.

Wow, if I didn't have such a stuffed up nose from this awful cold, I think I could almost smell the fragrance of those beautiful flowers coming from your blog! Great post, have a fabulous weekend!

TRES BELLE said...

Jasmine, honeysuckle, roses, it doesn't get much better than that. Do you ever feel like you shouldn't cut the roses and bring them into your house? I do...I can't bring myself to cut even one rose.

Happy Pink Saturday

Gorgeous flowers in your garden, especially the roses. It's so funny to hear you say the summer heat is creeping in, here in Washington State, it won't be creeping in for another 2 and1/2 months! Once it arrives though it's usually fabulous! Have a great weekend full of Pink Smiles!

They are all beautiful. Roses, love them. I was intrigued by your honeysuckles. Like how they creep and those flowers look like butterflies hanging. Wish I could smell them too :-)

caren said...

Gorgeous flowers! I love the honeysuckle. When I was little we had honeysuckle growing in our yard and we used to tear the ends off and drink the nectar inside. Not sure you should do that anymore! lol Thanks for visiting me!

I have just returned from your wonderful state where I spend my winters in Scottsdale! I know these beauties and have seen them blossoming during the Spring season which is a treat for me! I did not get a chance to photograph the roses which were glorious just before I left!Thank you for allowing me a reminder of just what I left behind!
