Never enough pink


Greetings from my garden home,
I have been participating in Pink Saturday for over a year now but my success in meeting Bev's challenge has not been realized. I think the problem is when I go visit on pink Saturday I forget who I have visited and then it takes too long to go back so I just blog along justifying my laziness and wishing I had jotted down a fellow PS gal's blog to use for next week, well this time I decided to do something new. Every time I post for Pink Saturday I get at least one new person who stops by to say hello so I decided why not visit their blog while I'm writing  my post and feature my new friends blog for PS, so here goes..
 This week I received a visit from a dear lady named Debbie, at Simply Debbie. Debbie is more social than I and just a visit to her blog let's you know right away how much she cares for others even when you know she is hurting herself. She has a great big heart for prayer and to really make a difference in other peoples lives. Her blog is easy to navigate and while there you will meet some of her friends and family.
Some how or other there is not quite enough pink to show off in the garden yet. Things are still mostly purple but the cone flowers and the day lilies should start blooming soon so pink will again take center stage.
These flowers don't look pink in this picture but they are actually a hot pink canna in an urn with a bunch of other mostly exotics
[At least they are exotic for Vermont] 
I hope you are having a wonderful weekend and remember to count your blessings.
Tell the people you love how much they mean to you.
We still live in a free country! Praise the Lord! Blessings Meg

Happy PiNk, Meg...

I do my "challenge" probably backwards from how Beverly suggested...what I do is "as I'm writing my current PS post" I visit some blogs that are new to me or I haven't been to in a while and I feature them in my current post instead of waiting til the next week..works out just great for me.

Your flowers are so pretty..

Have a wonderful day,
Stephanie ♥

HAPPY PINK SATURDAY MEG,
I AM SO BLESSED OUR PATHS CROSSED
YOU ARE SO SWEET TO MENTION ME
YOUR LAST POST TO ME WAS A TEAR CHOKER...BECAUSE WE DO THE SAME THINGS...THAT IS THE REASON I BLOG ABOUT MY GRIEF...I NEEDED TO KNOW THAT WHAT I WAS FEELING WAS NORMAL...I THOUGHT I WOULD LOSE MY MIND AND IT IS STILL QUESTIONABLE...MY MOTHER TOLD ME THAT THE OTHER DAY I HAD NOT ACCEPTED AMY'S DEATH I JUST CAME TO THE REALIZATION...I DON'T KNOW IF THEY ARE BOTH THE SAME.
I LOVE YOUR BLOG
YOU ARE PRECIOUS TO ME
HUGS AND BLESSINGS
SIMPLY DEBBIE

Meg, the pictures were lovely. My garden is lacking in pink. I think that every year. After the initial burst of spring bloom, I am pink poor! I am trying to remedy that by getting starts from friends of pink things blooming this time of year! Blessings!

Meg, I do I do I do have inventory. Tons and tons! Are you close enough to stop by? I am putting some on eBay, but it takes so long I may have to quit doing that. I'd gladly open up the trim room for you.

No, our house did not sell. We were given a story that makes no sense.

I absolutely love that look, of putting a canna in an urn with other plants and something draping over the side! Yours looks just lovely!
It's my very first Pink Saturday....it's so nice to meet you!

What a lovely meme! I just planted a perfect pink Knockout rose ... you are so right that you can never have enough of the sweet color.

Pam said...

Love the flowers. You are right you can never have to many colorful flowers.

Happy Pink Saturday.

Hello Meg,
Happy Pink Saturday!
Hey, I know 2 things you could do to keep your neighbors cat from going in your flower bed:
cats don't like walking on weird uneven things, so if you put something like chicken wire under the soil, just covered with dirt enough that the cat will step on it and jump right back off, you can even cut and bend some of the wires up to really make him go away, or you can go online and buy coyote or bobcat urine. You sprinkle that around and cats will smell this and stay away!
Hope your weekend is wonderfully PINK!
