PINK SATURDAY HAPPY TO BE BACK AGAIN

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hello I am so happy to be back showing off some Pink. It has been a while since I have been able to join in all the Pink fun…   I would like to Thank our lovely Pink Hostess Beverly of How Sweet The Sound  Beverly has done a beautiful job of hosting this wonderful event, so please stop on by and visit her, and she will have ton’s of others who are showing off their Pretty Pink Saturday Lovelies…..    I am showing some pretty Pink flowers that are around our apt. complex, they have such beautiful plants…  Not sure the name of the flowering trees but they are gorgeous and smell so pretty… they remind me of a Lilac tree, but Honey Bunny says they are not,,,, so if any one out there knows what kind of flowering tree it is please pass it on so I can tell him….lol 

Roses for Pink Saturday 004

These are all over the place down here, every where I drive I see these trees all in bloom… And the Magnolia trees are really in bloom too, they have them all over the apt. complex too.  I have been thinking of asking them if I can pick some,,,,, or maybe just sneak out at night and pick them then……….. lol;  now do you all think I would really do that???????  

Roses for Pink Saturday 003  Hmmmmm my close up does not look to clear,, sorry about that.  Oh and out side our door we have Pecan Trees,, I was so excited to see them,,, I will have to take a photo of them, boy they are full of nut’s too. Funny thing though I have yet to see a squirrel, excuse me for sounding dumb, but do they have squirrel’s here in N. C.  or am I just not seeing them…. 

Roses for Pink Saturday 001  Honey Bunny came home from the store yesterday, and I was not feeling too well, and this is what he bought for me….  what a guy…..  I love the deep Pink on the tips of the Rose’s I can’t wait to see them bloom and what they look like…. How luck am I to have a Honey like him,, I ask you;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

Roses for Pink Saturday 002

Just a close up of the Rose’s  this one turned out pretty good, don’t you think????   Now the next one’s are not Pink but the Beautiful White Magnolia’s I just had to show them off as well. They might feel left out… then I would feel bad.

Roses for Pink Saturday 005  Now that is just a beautiful flower, and the leaves are just as amazing…  I love the sent they have.. mmmmmmm

Roses for Pink Saturday 006

All the Tree’s have so many blooms on them, I just love to take a walk around here and look at all the beautiful plants, and flowers. Isabella love’s to take walks with me, she is so excited,,, she never really had to be on leach before, we had fenced yard,, I bet she is wondering why there are so many people and cars in her back yard…. lol;  I have to give her a bath tomorrow and I will take some photos of her and show off my baby girl….. Oh and I did take some photos of the areas of our new home that I have did a bit of decorating…  But for the most part it is still sparse… But Labor day should change that,,, I hope….   Oh and Honey Bunny is taking me to the huge G W tomorrow I can’t wait to see what I can find…. squealing with delight!!!!!!!!!!   So tomorrow night I will do a post on my new home and show some photos for you to see….. 

I have been working on my blog site too, trying to make it look more interesting,,,, I have noticed that my visitors to my blog have slowed down.. So I thought I should do some fluffing up, and add some personal photos,,, Please let me know what you think and what else I could do to make it more inviting…  I would really love the help, I am still new at this…  Well I hope you al enjoyed my Pink Saturday Flowers…. I thank you for take the time to stop by, and please leave me a comment so I know you have been by, and then I can visit you…… Thank you all……  So until next time;

God Bless;

Hugs;

Alaura

I am pretty sure the pink is crepe myrtle. They come in about four different colors and are blooming profusely now in GA also. Magnolia scent is a favorite of mine too. I think your blog looks wonderful. Summer is slow for blogging, a lot of people on vacation and many have kids just getting back to school. Cooler temps will keep blog friends closer to home I think. Hope you have a nice weekend.

Neabear said...

I was going to say the tree looks like crepe mrytle. I see others thought so too. They are blooming around here in California also. Usually in August we see them blooming.

Linda said...

Wow, those trees are just gorgeous...but I don't have a clue what they are. The roses were a pretty sweet surprise! Happy Pink Saturday!

I hate to be a broken record, but it's cold and gloomy here today and it rained all day yesterday! Hoping that I can get outside a bit to check out my gardens☺ Pink Saturday is bringing a little much needed and very welcome color into my home today. Thanks so much for participating. It's always so nice to visit your blog and see what's going on.

Don't worry about the number of visitors to your blog, worry about the quality of the visitors☺

Hope your weekend is filled with sunshine and everyone you l♥ve. I'm hoping mine will be dry☺

Crape-myrtles grow like weeds down here, from palest pink to watermelon & fuschia... everything in between. The white weeping variety is my personal fave.

Nice to meet you.
Happy Pink Saturday.
Julia

Carolyn said...

Crepe myrtles look so pretty-too bad they don't grow here on P.E.I.
What a thoughtful husband to buy you pretty roses.

Hi Alaura..as always, your post is lovely. I loved the magnoila and the pinks on the tree...and those roses..how beautiful. Happy Pink Saturday and have a lovely week.

Vicki said...

Hi, Alaura,
I think the pink blooms are crepe myrtle, too. They grow all over the south. I live in Texas, and we have them everywhere. I also enjoyed seeing those beautiful magnolias. Thanks for stopping by Bunny Cottage. Have a great weekend. Vicki

Your flowers are very pretty! I think the one is a crepe myrtle, too. I used to have several of them; they're quite beautiful and they come in all different colors. I enjoyed my visit. Happy Pink Saturday!
