Pink Saturday in the Garden



I had something else in mind when I signed up to join Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for Pink Saturday. But, I was out watering pots , beds,and window boxes and thought I might share these blooms with you before the summer slips away and takes all this glorious pink with it.


Pink hydrangea



Pink impatiens planted with sweet potato vine, asparagus fern, varigated ivy, and pink and green polka dots. Something is munching on the sweet potato vine! It must be tasty--our son's dog like to eat the part trailing on the deck!


Charlie-the culprit, but with a face like this he escapes retribution!



One perfect deep pink rose bud




A concrete basket- shaped pot filled with two shades of impatiens, pink geranium, trailing petunias, green and white polka dots, and lantana




Crape myrtles surrounding the deck and pool area



Window boxes filled to capacity with impatiens, verbena, and geraniums


A pink hisbiscus tree loaded with buds


Not bad for a girl who thinks her favorite color is blue! Please join Beverly here for more Pink Saturday fun!

  23. Hi Susan! All your flowers are lovely, but I'm afraid Sweet Charlie is stealing the limelight today!! What a perfect pose for the camera! I would have had to hold a doggie snack just so in front of my dog's face to get him to sit still so perfectly like that!! Happy Pink Saturday and hope you're enjoying a wonderful weekend! ~tina
