Spring Pink Flowers

Today is Pink Saturday, an event hosted weekly by Beverly of How Sweet the Sound. Please visit Beverly for a list of other bloggers with Pink Saturday posts. You will make some wonderful blogging friends. Thank you Beverly for hosting!

Spring is right around the corner. Yesterday was a beautiful day here, and all the spring blooming plants are loaded with buds. It won't be long until my azaleas are in bloom! I look so forward every year to the show they put on.

Here are two pink flowers that I don't have, but would like to try. Maybe next year!!

Isn't this tulip beautiful?

And pink dogwood! The white is native to our area, but I would love to try the pink!
Do you have any flowers you would like to try? I would love to know!

Hope you have a wonderful Pink Saturday!

Tulips are John's (my husband) favorite flower. My plan is to plant ten bulbs a year. One day the yard will blast with color in the Spring. Happy Pink Saturday!

Beautiful flowers! One thing I know for sure is that if you have deer around the tulips won't be there for very long. I planted over 200 of them one year and the deer ate every single one of them! The dogwood tree will be fine if you get one big enough and keep watch on it. I have the white ones that grew here on their own.
We had a butterfly in our yard yesterday!!! Yeah Spring is right around the corner! It is 77 degrees right now!
Happy Pink Saturday!

Becca said...

I certainly is a tulip and I do love it. They are my favorite flowers. Dogwoods are also beautiful but I hear that they have a temper!

I have so many flowers and plants I want to try! It's sorting them all out because obviously I don't have room to try everything. I love those bright pink tulips. Now that is nature's perfection.
