Pink Saturday...It's Good to be Back!

It's great to be back. I've missed blogging. Three days before my son's graduation party, I got sick. I mean really, really sick. I thought I got the flu, but after three days of not being able to get out of bed, I began to think it was something else. The party came and went. 130 guests, and I could barely get out of bed. I have been blessed with wonderful friends who all rallied around and took charge of getting things together for the party. They set up everything, got the food organized and even cleaned up. Well what was wrong with me....I had pneumonia! I had never had it before and 4 weeks later, I am back to feeling like myself. One of my friends took some photos of the party. I will share some photos with you this coming week.
So lets get to PINK Saturday. I wanted to share some photos of all my flowers. Early spring I planted lots and lots of PINK flowers in all different shades of PINK. I wanted everything perfect for the graduation party. I always plant PINK flowers. I'll start with my front door.....
This wreath just sings Summer. I made the wreath last year and the door cans are new. I always have a wreath on the front door. A special one for every season. Here's a better view of all the PINK flowers as you approach the front door.
The cans are very easy to make. I used some of the same PINK flowers from the wreath and used a variety of ribbon. I took some photos of the supplies. I'll share this with you during the up coming week.
I just love the PINK and Green color combination. The vintage button was used to secure the ribbon that is used to hang the can.
I have had this bunny for years. She looks so cute popping out of the PINK flowers.
This was a wonderful wall grate I found and I just added a wall basket under it. Now I can plant even more PINK flowers!
I Love geraniums. The color was Strawberry Field.
The PINK carpet roses are in full bloom. They will continue to flower until the first snow.
In the back yard, I use bolder shades of PINK flowers. Just looking at them puts a smile on my face!
The hostas are blooming now. I love the accents of PURPLE.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Thanks for stopping by. It's great to be back. Take some time to enjoy other PINK Saturday Posts Here. The kiss of the sun for pardon,
The song of the birds for mirth,
One is nearer God's heart in a garden, than anywhere else on earth.

Hi Sherry,
Love you little cans.
I posted a flower bag, which is a similar idea only fabric.
I do like your cans better. Probably much faster to make too, and you don't need a sewing machine!

Blessings on your day,

Hi Sherry! Wow is the word for your work well done. Honey I am so happy to hear you are getting better. Pneumonia is a very dangerous thing to have so take care of yourself. I can hardly wait to see the instructions for those cans, because they were just beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing. Wonderful Pink Saturday post. Your home is exquisite. I have signed up to follow your blog, as I do not want to miss a thing. Please stop by and say hi. I would love to have you follow my blog as well. Country Hugs, Sherry

The front of your house is just beautiful to look at! I love the wreath - it is so abundant with flowers. And the cans are just adorable hanging at the knob. As of the trail - I sure would like to follow it and maybe it'll lead me to a secret garden :-)

Happy Pink Saturday!

Hi Sherry! Love your wreath and the matching flower cans. I remember seeing some other flower cans on doors around May Day?.. I think it was?.. Anyway, I would love to try to make them! Very pretty! Happy Pink Saturday, and hope you're enjoying a wonderful weekend! ~tina

Cold, dark, misty in my neck of the woods. My perennials are hiding and I am wearing a sweatshirt. Coming here today made my day a little brighter. Thanks so much.

You have such a lovely entrance to your home☺

I'm a little late with my Pink Saturday visits because I had my grandsons for the weekend and couldn't tear myself away from them☺

♥Wishing you and yours a week full of happiness♥
