It's time again for Pink Saturday! Can you believe that it has already been one year since Pink Saturday was begun by Beverly at How Sweet the Sound?
Though any time is good for pink, I think spring is an especially good time for all things pink. Look at this beautiful rose I found outside my front windows!
When I saw the rose bush in early spring, I didn't know if it was dead or not. I began to see green thorny stems growing, then today noticed the first rose!
I'm so glad I got to share in this Pink Saturday First Anniversary with my special guest Stella! To read more about her, click on her picture in the sidebar. She is native to England, and has been on many adventures while in the United States and has visited several different households!
Stella and I visited the house on Bonnie Lane, which we still have possession of. Long story. Anyhow, she found peonies growing in the back yard. She couldn't resist a sniff.
They have been pink before, but this is the first year I have noticed that they have become variegated with two shades of pink. I think this is even prettier!
I just love peonies. I think they grow even prettier as they get older and the blooms are even more open.
They're even pretty closed.
These peonies were in the side yard getting ready to bloom. They are a deeper pink.
Stella said she thought these buds looked like Mother Nature's lipstick.
She even crept up to the bud and kissed it. I didn't notice any difference, but Stella swears her lips are more pink.
Stella also found these little pink flowers in the back.
Okay, this isn't pink, but I thought this purple iris was pretty. Do you see the little orange poppy in the background?
This next picture has absolutely nothing to do with Pink Saturday, but I thought this picture of my son Sean with the neighbor dog Harley was just too sweet. I swear, Harley is just about the prettiest dog I have ever seen. He is really shy, but Sean was patient with him and now they are best buddies. When I saw them in the yard, Harley was leaning his head on Sean's legs and looked so loving! All dogs and small children love Sean.
I'm tickled pink today because I was able to get my van window fixed and insurance paid everything! There wasn't even a deductible! If I had to pay it on my own, it would have cost $275, and since it would have been a while for me to come up with the money, I would have been driving around with my very ghetto looking black garbage bag covering it up. I was so happy to get a real window, and they came right to my house to fix it!
I'm also tickled pink to have my first new pair of glasses in 10 years (courtesy of the state). I finally had to make my first concession to being 50 and admit I needed bifocals. Wow, they really work! I had been having such a hard time seeing the really fine print, like in our phone books, but now it is clear as a bell! I was also having trouble reading because my eyes would tire quickly and the words would become blurred. No more! My dilated eye exam turned out just fine too.
Anyhoo, have a great Pink Saturday, and don't forget to visit Beverly to see a list of other participants who you can visit!
