My First Pink Saturday

Today I am joining Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for my first Pink Saturday. I do have lots of pinks around so I am happy to join in the fun.

Although my pink peonies are gone I will enjoy my photos of them all winter.

My Fantin Latour rose.

I like to have a simple bouquet on my kitchen window sill. One pink peony is all it takes.

Lilacs are another favorite flower so I took lots of photos of them.

Roses peeking over the fence.

Two of our little granddaughters are pretty in pink as they enjoy their teaparty.

Another pink peony blossom

I love making collages so I squeezed in some more pinks this way.Teacups,roses,peonies and grandbaby Lila.

Oh! this is fun so now I am off to check out more pinks at Beverly's How Sweet the Sound. Thank you Beverly for hosting this fun event.


Thank you for visiting me.


Have a good weekend,


Carolyn

Busy weekend. Just now getting around to see all the wonderful pink. Your peonies are beautiful. I don't know what the problem was with mine this year, they had very few blooms.
ENJOY!
