Shades of Pink

Hello everyone,
     It is Pink Saturday today at How Sweet the Sound so I went looking though my photos for some of my favorite ' pinks'.

Our little granddaughter practicing her ballet moves.

Looking forward to warm summer nights but not wanting to  rush spring as I enjoy it too.
I love my roses-this one is Heritage an English David Austen rose.
A pink hydrangea in a vintage vase.
Some shades of pink geraniums.

A pretty pink foxglove, alas not from our garden.

Thank you Beverly for hosting Pink Saturday at How Sweet the Sound.
Thank you for visiting me,

Hello Carolyn,
Your photos are so lovely. I am particularly fond of the ones with your sweet granddaughter. I agree with you - I want spring to linger as long as possible - loving these days,
I hope you have a wonderful weekend,

I love those little white tea cups with the teeny roses. So pretty. I am so anxious for flowers again. The Foxglove is incredible, isn't it. Your grand-daughter is so sweet. Mine will be 2 in May. Hugs, Deb=^..^=x6

As always I love coming to your blog! And I recently picked up a magazine(Romantic Homes, I believe) in Walmart and it had an article about you and I got my husband's attention and told him, "Hey,look this is the lady who's blog I enjoy!" I want to go back and purchase the magazine eventually!
Also wanted to ask where you found the tea cup napkin rings?

Beautiful photos and blog! Do you have dirt under your nails today? I imagine things are coming along now....

Merlesworld said...

I love the pink flowers but blue is my chosen colour maybe because it's so hot here and blue is so cooling.

Barb said...

Hi Carolyn,
Love this pretty post....especially the pink hydrangea.
God Bless

So many pretty things especially the teapot. I've finally succumbed to the temptation to acquire some pretty china and have won a lovely Victoriana Rose trio and a really beautiful vintage hot water pot on E-bay today. I fear there is more to come:)

Madelief said...

Beautiful pinks Carolyn! What a pretty rose 'heritage' is.

Your granddaughters look very sweet.

Happy week ahead.

Hi Carolyn
I don't imagine there would be a shortage of pink things at your place; I enjoyed all that you showed.
The hat box caught my eye, it's pretty. I was looking for one recently and they are hard to find. I ended up with a pretty plain one but will keep looking.

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

I would love to have the David Austin rose you showed, it is spectacular!

Beverly said...

Happy Pink Saturday, Carolyn.

No one makes pink as lovely as you. And, your foxgloves are gorgeous. I've always loved them.

Blooming Rose Musings said...

All of your pinks are so beautiful. What is it about pink roses that makes them so romantic!?! They used to say red roses were the expression of true love but I truly believe it is the pink rose that expresses that emotion! Beautiful photos.

Elzie said...

Beautiful pinks, and the most beautiful one is your granddaughter. She's such a lovely girl. And that rose, hm!, guess I have to see if that one is for sale in this country.
Have a nice evening.
Love Elzie

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Lovely pinks, Carolyn! What wonderful weather we're having, eh? I imagine there are any number of flowers peeking up in your gardens these days. I picked up Romantic Homes and enjoyed the feature they did on you. It was lovely!

Welcome back, Carolyn! AWESOME teapot - did you find it in Florida? It's jaw-dropping. I'd be drinking tea all day from that gorgeous vessel. Again, huge congrats to you on the Romantic Homes article by Jo-anne. And, Midge and I agree the pond photo is very wall worthy! LOL
