Country Style Pink

Yesterday as I was traveling I was thinking about Pink Saturday and I decided to see how much pink I noticed along my journey. Now some of you know I live in a very rural area and things do happen different around here. So these are the pinks on my way to church [16 miles each way] and a couple of pinks when you get there!

Sometimes pink is universal and not as romantic as we would have it .

Please allow me to indulge myself as most of them are of the horticultural persuasion!
This next picture is of a retired piece of farm equipment at an active dairy farm with a greenhouse/vegetable stand. Love the recycle re-use application I'm sure the cows appreciate it also..when I asked the farmer if I could take a picture, He said Oh, you mean the "manure spreader" How great for pink Saturday Huh?

And without further ad- do here we are at church , the nursery kids planted these inpatients in their play yard and get very excited to see how much the flowers grow each week.And then there is their cute little pink table set.

Aren't these the most gorgeous windowboxes? This is a diner and the woman who does these does them for free to advertise her floral business[she is in her 70's] and for an occasional free breakfast. I wish you could meet her , she is such a hoot.Always dirt under her fingernails!

Thanks for stopping by and I do hope you enjoy your PS Make sure to check back at Beverly's How Sweet the Sound and see how many blogs you can catch this weekend.xoxo Meg

Hello Meg,
Happy PINK Saturday to you. I love the reuse of the old farm equipment. I saw on another sight where they had a very old pickup truck parked and the bed of it was a garden..it was too cool!!

I also love the window boxes at the diner..such a romantic touch.

Do drop by to see me...I'd love to have you. :0)

Those are gorgeous window boxes! And I'm crazy about the reuse of the manure spreader - who would have ever thought it could be so pretty? Happy Pink Saturday!

I wouldn't mind a little dirt under my nails if I could have flower boxes that looked like that. They are gorgeous!

Good Morning!! Your rurual pinks are wonderful!! I love the manure spreader floral container :) and the window boxes! The flower shop owner who fills them is a rare and talented jewel.

I just spent time reading some of your recent posts. First, my heart just hurts so much for you over the loss of your son. I don't know how you could possibly totally recover from such an event. We lost our first child when he was just 3 days old. I still hurt over that...and I never got to know him like you knew yours. However, God gives us great joys, too, such as the recent marriage of your son Seth. What fun to have an outdoors wedding. Is he also the son going to Irag? Please tell him we thank him for serving his country and that he is a true patriot....so are you.
I have enjoyed "getting to know you" a bit through your blog and look forward to many more visits. Dana

Absolutely divine! Happy Pink Saturday. Love those wave petunias in another post. For some reason I just can't grow nice petunias. The flowers shrink on me as the season goes along. Is that weird or what? xo Lynn

Hello, Meg,
I enjoyed my drive to church with you. The countryside where you live is beautiful. I love those pretty impatiens. They are one of my favorite flowers, but they do so struggle in our hot Texas summers. I am so glad you were able to use the vintage image. Anything that I have on my blog, you may use. I would feel honored. Have a good week ahead. Vicki

So sorry that I am getting to you a day late and a dollar short for Pink Saturday. Seems like the day just got away from me.

The sun was out in the afternoon and all day today, so with all the rain we've had, I went outside to play.

As always, it is a pleasure to come here to see what you are sharing and what you've been up to during the week. Thanks so much for making my weekend all ♥Pink and Pretty♥

Hi Meg!
Love all of your Pink Saturday posts today. The window boxes I think would have to be my favorite. I have always loved window boxes. Love all the flowers in the old piece of farm equipment. What a way to spice up an antique with color, and didn't have to paint the rust. Love it. Thanks for sharing. Please stop by and say hi. Country hugs, Sherry

I like it all, but agree with others who think the window boxes & the lady who does them(!) are the greatest!

Meg, I'm pretty sure I used the instructions at thecutestblogontheblock.com to expand my minima template to 3 columns. Later, I increased the size of my middle column to 900 and made adjustments per another instruction I go on another website. I experiment a lot. A lot of trial and error. Most lately I've created a blog just to experiment on. I live in fear of messing up one of my "real" blogs :)
