Pink Saturday

Here I am again posting pictures of pink. I enjoy yard work. I actually love house work most of the time. But all this work in these worldly things isn't the most important work, right?
Here is a picture of my front porch. I guess the bricks have a pinkish tint. And there is a basket of pink petunias that will soon need to be planted in the ground and pinched off so they can bloom again.

These wispy blooms are on the mimosa tree.

This a basket stand holding 4 baskets and two of them are pink bouganvilla.

I think this is called a Century Plant and it has these pink pretties at the end of the tall spikes.

Last are a couple of petunia plants.

You are invited to view more pinks by clicking HERE for HowSweetTheSound, hosted by Beverly.

Jennifer, such lovely flowers! When I was little, I used to love the blooms on mimosa trees because they reminded me of pink powder puffs!

Happy Pink Saturday...

Jennifer, I love your front porch. It looks like a lovely place to sit and chat. I like all your pink flowers. Pinks and purples are my favorite combination of colors but all flowers are beautiful.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Yes, the bricks sure does :-) And you are surrounded by pink flowers!

The century plant is new to me. I think the center clumped flowers are shaped into a heart :-)

Happy PS!
and Happy 35th wedding anniversay!

I just love pink flowers . . . and I can see you do too. ; ) I hope my mimosas bloom soon -- I love those tufts of powder-puffiness. I have five all together, but only three old enough to bloom for me.

Thanks for the cheerful tour of pink in your gardens.
