Pink Gardening Inspiration

Beverly at How Sweet the Sound is hosting Pink Saturday. Please drop by her blog for lots of pink inspiration.

It is the time of year when so many of us love to garden. Here are some photos with a little ‘pink’ to get you inspired.

Don’t you love this garden kit? I have pink tools, but would love to have this whole kit!

I used to think flamingos were a little ‘trashy’ in the garden…but not anymore!

I love these peonies in the painting by Monet. I’m not sure they grow in our area…I haven’t noticed them in the nurseries around here.0034_pink_peonies06s

Hope everyone has a very happy and pink Saturday!

Hi diane, I am connected to the net for the next few days so I hope I can visit more of my friends. I do love the tool set in pink. the peonies are blooming here in Kansas City MO. right now. They are lovely. I too like flamingos but grew up around them. They are fun without a doubt.

When we leave my sister-in-law's home in three days, I am not sure when we will have a connection again. I hope I can visit again soon.

Hugs...Jeanne

the gardening kit is great and like you, years ago I thought the worst thing you could have in a garden was a tacky pink flamingo. Now they are so hard to find, the original company has gone out of business, making it almost impossible to buy one made like years ago, great post, happy pink saturday, Char

What a l♥vely Pink Saturday blog entry. This is the one day of the week when I get to sit for a couple of hours and soak in my favorite color. Thanks for being a part of that day☺

Wishing you and yours a wonderful family weekend. I will be remembering my father who served in WWII, and praying for all of our military who are in harms' way.
