Pink Saturday in Bloom

Happy Pink Saturday!

It's been a busy summer already around our house. For Pink Saturday, I thought that I would share our front porch flowers. (Sorry, only a bit of pink today!) For more pink beauty, please visit Beverly over at How Sweet the Sound. Have a lovely weekend!

  1. Beautiful! I love all your flowers...Happy Pink Saturday!

  2. How gorgeous! Your place looks so beautifully lush and green. I love that vivid pink of your geraniums.

    Thank you for your kind comment on my page.

  3. Beautiful flowers! Wish I could have at least one magnolia over here.

  4. Happy Pink Saturday, Valerie.

    Thank you for sharing all of your beautiful blooms. I've always wished we could find a place to plant a magnolia. I love them!

  5. Pretty. I love ferns like that in pots. I had one once and managed to kill it off rather quickly for some reason, oops! Happy Pink Saturday and have a great Father's Day weekend!

  6. Beautiful flowers and a gorgeous house!
    I have always wanted a front porch (with a swing). IN 1998 my husband and I moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma. I always imagined that all american homes had a front porch (and a white picket fence... to many american movies!) So my only requirement for our new home was that it HAD to have a porch. Poor realtor drove around with us for 3 weeks showing us over 100 homes and NOT ONE WITH a front porch (guess they just weren't in style in Tulsa). So I ended up without.

    Back in Norway I'm still dreaming about that front porch! Well, one day...

    Thanks for visiting my blog Sweeterliving and for leaving such a nice comment.

    I hope you have a blessed Sunday.

    Greetings from Norway!

    P.S. I'm following you too...

  7. Great looking plants. You must have three green thumbs.

    I love geraniums and have a pot almost identical to yours on my deck.

    Thank you for your visit to me site.

  8. Thanks for coming by to see my pink ballet slippers.
    Yes, do hang on to some of those things. You'll be glad you did.

  9. Oh My Gosh! Love the plants, the geraniums are to die for. Everything looks so beautiful. Have you had a lot of rain there? We very seldom get rain in Phoenix, so I spend a lot of money on water to water the flowers that I have. I have never figured out the secret to a Boston Fern. Yours is absolutely beautiful. Thanks for stopping by for Pink Saturday to visit. I hope you'll come back soon. "Country Hugs to you" from Country Wings in Phoenix, Sherry

  10. I don't know how I killed that dratted plant. I think maybe I over watered it. It was in a small pot too, maybe it needed re-potted.

  11. Happy Pink Saturday---you can't beat PINK flowers!!

    I just found where you had attended the Oz exhibit at Cr. Center! I'm getting ready to post about the day my hubs and I took our little gr. girl there and the Wizard of Oz Birthday Party that resulted!!! :) Loved your trip, too!!!

    Hope it was a good Father's Day for the dads in your life. Dana

  12. I'm still visiting PS posts! Very pretty flowers. I read through the rest to catch me up...on the last post...yes, I know. Wishing you the best.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. Your kind words are appreciated! As Mother Teresa said, "Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love."
