On Jodi’s blog, bloomingwriter I found this challenge, given by Angela at Cottage Magpie. to put up a post of pink things around your home, in anticipation of Valentine’s Day. I thought it might be a difficult task, but I found a treasure of all things pink! Here are a few.
This photo was taken on the grounds of the Haliburton Museum here in Windsor, many years ago. I’m not sure of the name of the rose — perhaps some of you more knowledgeable gardeners will know.
I like bright colors in the garden — corals and fuschias — as shown in these geraniums and impatiens, which seem to do very well in my little container gardens on the balcony.
A pink coneflower, with a diner.
A profusion crabapple tree which blooms just feet away from the balcony and is always very showy.
I love this photo of my older daughter…who will be 29 next month! The tulip is red, but I love the pink jacket and hat.
I received the day lilies on my birthday last year, and the potted azalea from my younger daughter on Mother’s Day.
And then there are always pretty pink dishes — two pieces of cranberry glass; a teacup and saucer from my original china pattern, Victoriana Rose; and an antique plate I inherited from my aunt.
Happy Valentine’s Day to all!
