Pink Saturday AND A Happy Mother's Day

Happy Pink Saturday!!! Thank you Beverly for making this as beautiful as the color pink. You can find the list of pinkies at Beverly's blog, How Sweet The Sound.
I thought I would take you on a stroll through my yard this morning to see what we could fine. Please come join me.

My gardenias are just starting to bloom. The bush is full of buds and I have been graced with the first one. My favorite flower ever. My grandmother grew these and so does my mom. I love them. I passed the gardenia tradition down to my daughter in law and now she has several bushes that are blooming and even my sweet grand daughters love them. Ahhh, life is so good, smells good too!

Perfect Pink roses for this week on my rose tree.

I found this cactus blossom this morning. Smells like an Easter lily....yumO.

This gorgeous bloom is so large and has the most beautiful throat.

 So pure white, yellow and green....lovely!!

If you like desert flowers, how about a yellow bird of paradise! She's nice isn't she?!

Happy Mother's Day Mom. You were beautiful then and you are beautiful today!!

Hi Char~
such great pictures! I can almost smell your garden - so very beautiful! What a lovely tradition to carry on in the family - something that brings grace and beauty! I LOVE pink roses and the desert flower is so great! I wish that I had the gift of gardening, but for now I get to live through the beauty of others'. You are right - your mom was and is beautiful!
Happy Pink Saturday, Char!
