Happy Pink Saturday~

Happy Pink Saturday everyone, and thankyou so much Beverly from How Sweet The Sound for making this all possible. Please be sure to visit Beverly's post to see all the participants this week. What a gorgeous color and bloom. I found this beauty in my garden this morning, it is a hybiscus flower, great for the hair.
Lots and lots of pretty pink roses in this beautiful pillow I finished and listed on my website.

Crepe Myrtles are blooming right now.

A little close up, lovein the color......watermelon is the name

Last but not least, I know, I know, it's yellow, but it's gorgeous and does have some pink in the center......have a great weekend everyone!

Lovely florals, Char. I went to your website again and it is just wonderful. I particularly like that trim on your header. Out of all my items, I still think that is my favorite color and style. Happy PS!

Enjoy your weekend,

You must be someplace in the south because just like us you are showing the same flowers blooming (crepe myrtles & hibiscus) not lilacs & sweet peas! :) Happy Pink Saturday.

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

Lots of gorgeous pinks here today....so pretty. Where are you? My crepe myrtles wont's be blooming for at least another month. Mine are "watermelon" too. HPS xo Lynn

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

Ahhhhh....so that explains it. :) A couple of years ago when we redid the pool we had to dig up the crepe myrtles. I put them in the lake for a whole month to keep the roots wet, hoping to save them and replant. We replanted and the first year they looked awful and I was afraid we had ruined them. The second year they looked like a million bucks with huge leaves on them. This year we have little baby ones coming up everywhere. :) Have a super great weekend.

Beautiful and fun Pink Saturday blog entry! It's a little gloomy outside today (hope the sun comes out) but your blog and a little cup of tea are giving me a little sun!

Happy Pink Saturday. Sending you good wishes from the tip of Michigan for a special weekend filled with sun, surrounded by those you l♥ve.

So pretty. Our crepe myrtles are just starting to bloom, too. No, problem with the lily - I'm surprised they grow here! They have been in the yard for about 60 years and I guess they just adapt.
Have a wonderful Saturday. xoxo Nancy
