Pink Saturday

Happy Pink Saturday.  It’s not actually Saturday yet here, but it’s already Saturday in some parts of the world!!
Beverly at How Sweet The Sound hosts a Pink Saturday party every week.   I think she started it over 6 years ago.  Since I have some pink blooming in my garden I thought it would be fun to snap some pictures for you  and join in today.
These aren’t from my garden.  They were a gift for my birthday.  Our peonies are already finished blooming here in North Carolina.   I love the fragrance of them!
These are growing right outside our kitchen door.  They are a kind of campanula (I think).
We dug up a whole bed full of old shrubs on the other side of our kitchen door and I planted it with perennials.  These pretty little zinnias help fill in the spaces until the perennials have a chance to mature.
One of my favorite old standbys, pink geraniums.  They remind me of my mother.  She loved to do watercolor paintings of  geraniums and always had large pots of pink or coral ones in the summer.
This rosebush grows at the end of our driveway and wants to climb all over the mailbox, so I am constantly cutting it back.
That’s all the pink that is blooming in the garden on this June day.
  I have one more pink flower to show you.  It’s in a painting which I did recently.  I’ve just begun to experiment a little bit with acrylic paints.  It’s not very good but I like the colors!   So that’s my contribution to Pink Saturday.  Thank you to Beverly for hosting it.  I hope you’ll stop by and say hello if you’ve never met her before and maybe visit a few of the other bloggers who have pink things to show you.
 I have been so inconsistent with my blogging.  I wonder if anyone will even read this today…
