Pink In The Garden For PINK SATURDAY


I'm linking up to Beverly's Pink Saturday party over at How Sweet The Sound for the very first time! Lately I've been drawn to the color pink, especially in pottery, but today let's take a walk around the garden.


I got these pink shrooms at an estate sale last summer. I still can't believe that I set these down a couple of times before I finally brought them up to the cashier! And I don't know if you can tell by this picture, but they're about 2 feet tall.

A pink birdcage hanging in the garden, with red begonias in it. I love the little heart on the door!

An old chair that I painted pink, with an old enamel bowl full of sedum sitting on it. Along with a little pink stool holding my dirty dishes fountain.

A pink Lacecap Hydrangea.

I had painted the roof of this birdhouse fuchsia, but it's all worn off except for the small amount left on the front. That's a hosta flower that's almost ready to bloom resting against it. A very aggressive Mama Wren has built a nest in there. I have risked being pecked to get this shot for you!

A little windowbox hanging on the side of the shed, with pink begonias and pink saucers blooming inside! This is a little tribute to my grandparents, with a GRANDMA and GRANDPA cup hanging from cup hooks.

A Carefree Delight rosebush. Can you spot the little grasshopper?
I would like to thank Beverly at How Sweet The Sound for letting me link up this week! Please pop over there to see lots more pinks!

Welcome to Pink Saturday, Carol! Your pinks are perfect for today; love the shrooms in pink and the birdcage! Love your planter with the Grandparent's china too! I adore birdhouses and the fuchsia gives me a giggle because of my own post. Hope you will stop by and pay me a visit. Thanks for sharing all your pinks and have a wonderful weekend.

Blesssings,

Welcome to your first Pink Saturday, Carol. I am so glad you decided to participate. Your blog is lovely.

You do have wonderful pinks in your garden, and I love each one. The birdcage just may well be my favorite.

I mistakenly deleted my first comment. I was answering our telephone. Sorry.

What a breath of fresh air to see something besides shabby pink. I love it - but am not a pink girl or lots of frou frou. I live in an agricultural area surrounded by the desert and lots of wind - so I cannot have ruffles and all pinks. We have earthquakes (1500) since Easter - so I do not have lots of fancy china. Needless to say - I am always on the outside looking in- - - I have a large china cabinet painted white and decorated all red,white and blue as a tribute to our troops....I will leave it that way until our troops come home. I love your blog. I had a Country Gift Shop for several years, but closed it because of my hubbys ill health. He passed away nearly 5 years ago. I have created since I was about 7 years old and I still do.
Hugs........Pauline

fannipauline said...

I forgot to tell you the name of my Country Gift Shop was Glory Originals.......I feel my talent is God given - so therefore I created for the Glory of God - hence; the Glory Originals
Blessings to you......Pauline

Everything was pink in my world yesterday...my little pink shoe went flying down the sidewalk and so did I...landing on my tummy! I think I would have rather fell down the rabbit hole!
