A Couple of Pink Ladies...

It's time for Pink Saturday...
so what better time to show off a couple
lovely pink ladies!

(click on photos to enlarge)

Since we have been having a cold wet spring
I am taking advantage of it and getting some
extra planting and transplanting in.

I just planted these
Our Lady of Guadalupe Roses.

They are planted under a Purple Robe Locust
which is dropping it's flowers...
Don't you love the pink petal covered ground?

Here is a close up
the buds start a deeper pink...

and lighten as they bloom.

and since yes...  It is still raining here!
I rescued a couple from drowning.

I put them on my nightstand,
with a couple sprigs of Toadflax.
Sweet Dreams :-)

Another Pink Lady...
this cute little drive up cafe,
I saw in Sequim last Sunday.
It even had a too cute name.. Tootsie's:-)

Last Sunday.. was the last day of Mike's Vacation.
So we took another day trip,
and went to Sequim, WA.

Sequim is on the Olympic Peninsula
and in the "rain shadow" of the Olympic Mountains.
because of that it receives less than
sixteen inches of rain a year.

Making it a perfect place to grow lavender.

It is gorgeous there,
with rolling hills of lavender everywhere!
We are planning to go back
 for the Lavender Festival in July.
I can't wait, and promise to share lots of pictures!

Today I am joining
Beverly at How Sweet The Sound

Thanks for visiting me today!

Oh Bella, looks like lots of rain for you, but your new rose is gorgeous. At least you are able to enjoy a few blooms in your home. I bet they smell heavenly too. Happy Pink Saturday my friend, Char

Hi Bella! Thanks for following and leaving such a sweet comment on my blog! That hosta surrounded by the sweet woodruff was one my fav photos I took this season. That stuff is the most perfect ground cover.

Your new rose is just breathtaking! I sure wish my roses looked as healthy as yours. Something is having a hayday with mine and leaving the leaves looking like lace! Agghh!

Happy Pink Saturday to you!

Happy Pink Saturday, Bella,
Your post brought back so many sweet memories of when we lived in Washington State! We lived in Blaine and we visited everywhere...I love that state and I loved all the rain, too. My children thought I was a little nutty, I think, as I would put on my raincoa and boots and garden in the soft rain/mist. It is one of my happiest memories and boy do the flowers, cherries and strawberries grow there! Just the right amount of sun and water!

Olga said...

Beautiful pink roses. The little bouquet is so delicate and lovely. And that's a nice little pink cafe.

Debbie said...

Hi Bella...your roses are just gorgeous!!
All of your pictures are so pretty.
That pink cafe looks like a fun place to stop.
Have a happy Saturday.

Becky said...

I love your garden and your photos of the pink ladies were perfect for today. Happy Pink Saturday!

Lavender Cottage said...

Pretty pink roses, your favourite. Can't wait to see all the lavender, mine. :-)
I think we're all getting the rain lately - what happened to the hot, dry summer the farmers' almanac said we'll have? Oh right, now quite summer yet.


So happy you're joing us in Pink Saturdays. I have so much fun with a fantasy family of over-the-top women who love pink everything. Your roses are beautiful, and I so envy you living in that part of the world. xx's
