The last of Summer's roses...

At least for me. We had a long winter and a short summer on top of the fact our summers are pretty short anyway. So I ran out to get pictures of some of my roses and this is what was left. But you know, I do love the look of full blown roses, there's something so beautiful about them - I'm looking for the word I want but it escapes me. Anyway, Happy Pink Saturday to everyone. Pop over to Beverly's How Sweet the Sound to see some amazing pinks of all types - ever seen a pink (really) dolphin??? Take a look, it's a great time.




I haven't been a huge fan of petunias in the past, except for the small Million Bells, but this year this particular pink one caught my eye and I had to have it!



Sorry for the lack of posts lately - I'm trying to get caught up and on top of things at the shop and the Ortho Clinic and I'm working some really long hours. Once I get these necessities out of the way I'll be able to concentrate more on what I really love.

Take care, have a wonderful weekend and try to spend at least a little time doing what YOU love.

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♥
