Pink Petals...

Lets go for another trip around the garden..

(click photos to enlarge)

Just a common pansy...
but... nothing is happier,  or blooms longer,
 and they are one of my favorite garden flowers.

It's raining pink around town.
The kwanzan cherry trees are dropping their blooms..
I saw these mature trees while I was in town today,
the lawn was covered in petals... just gorgeous:-)

The rhododendron is my states flower,
(Washington State)
but to tell the truth I am not a big fan...
I like a more delicate leaf and flower.

On a garden tour I saw smelled a Rhododendron Fragrantissimum...
(yes.. a fragrant rhodie!)
I was sold on the smell and bought this one..
I planted it a couple years ago...
this year it is covered in blooms and smells great!

and ... because of my fellow lovers of pink houses....
I wanted to share this one with you .
It is in a neighboring city, and I always admire it.
The wisteria is blooming across the porch... so sweet!

Today...  I am joining Beverly at How Sweet The Sound
for Pink Saturday.

Thanks for stopping by,

Hi Bella
Love the pink house and would like to see the inside some day - can you get an invite? :-)
Great photos of pink flowers and petals; I'd have to say that besides lavender, pink is my other favourite colour.

Bella what wonderful photos! I wonder if you could make a petalman instead of a snowman (like we were able to make today!)out of all those pink flakes!

The pink house is just precious. Ours is pink- but not gorgeous pink, more like pukey pink that has a skin condition and is flaking off like crazy! Another project one of these days!

Bella, I adore the pretty flowers you pictured and the pink house is divine! I tease my husband that when we are old and he cannot see I am painting the outside of the house pink!
Hugs and Happy Pink Saturday,

Debby said...

What a gorgeous pink post! WOW!!! Your gardens are so beautiful, no flowers here to cold yet. Blah..The pink house is amazing.

Since we don't have many blooms yet, I love seeing pics of flowers from other areas. Pansies are one of my faves, too. Happy Pink Saturday!


Love the pink house.. so cute. I can only imagine how cute and whimsical it must look inside. And I love, love, love the kwanzan cherry tree. I've always wanted a cherry tree simply for all the beautiful pink but I don't think I would have much luck with it in Texas. I also wanted to let you know that I linked up to your blog this Pink Saturday. Have a great weekend! -April
