Hey Lady, everything's bloomin' Pink!!

I'm not being very original in my choices of pink for today, but since spring has felt like a long time in coming for me, I thought some of our local Midwest pink color is worth sharing. Visit Beverly, the Pink Saturday 'hostess with the mostess' at How Sweet The Sound.

Another great Pink Saturday blogger is Creative Carmelina. (Actually she's a great blogger on all days and with all colours!) She is a beautiful artist and can do... everything! Her blog is beautiful, as are her work and her words. Check her out; also peek at her esty shop!

a magnolia tree in full bloom!

a pretty pink bush that we can't seem to identify!

And finally, please watch this video: "Glitter in the Air" by singer PINK. I was going to put this video on this post but I can't make it small enough to fit! It's her performance during the Grammys, which is amazing. AND this song is just beautiful, just absolutely beautiful.

These pink trees arejust beautiful. I love this time of year. Going thru the long snowy winter makes you appreciate early spring so much more. The magnolias are my favorite.
Happy Pink Saturday!

Hi Maggie! Oh, what glorious pinkness of blooms. We were in Washington state a few weeks back and were able to experience the cherry blossoms! So gorgeous!
Thank you for popping in to see me and I hope you'll come back sometime. I will go and check out the blog you've mentioned.
Be a sweetie,

Seems I am always late but thrilled to be here anyway and see your glorious pink blooms. Ours are about gone so seeing yours was extra special and about your latest post, when you hit 60 you will realize how very young 40 really is and I have two very grown boys and they love spending time with their Mom. You will have that to look forward to. ....yippee! :) HPS

Mary said...

I love your post today. It is perfect for Pink Saturday. I hope it was a good one and that you are enjoying the rest of the weekend. Blessings...Mary

The blooms are gorgeous..I've been scrolling and reading along with your thoughts.. and I'm so happy now,to know that I'm not the only one with fast moving,wandering thoughts. Or maybe I'm ADD as well..

Happy Pinks though I'm a day late..
