"Pink"

Hello and Welcome to my Pink themed post.

"Radio Times Rose"

Isn't she pretty. I love this rose and have a row of them. One of the bushes is blooming so well.


"Radio Times" on the entrance table. Loving the perfume. Surrounded by Rose books - of course.

"Pink Easter Lily"



A while back my Mum gave me some bulbs from one of her neighbours. She asked about them last week. Hers had flowered, she asked how mine was going. I couldn't remember where I had planted them. I hoped they would come up. Imagine my delight the other day when I was down the front and one of them was blooming. I remember planting them now!!!


Yesterday I made 4 pillowslips. I had the material in my stash. Both the front and backing material which is a cream colour came from my favourite shop. Yes you guessed right. Good Sammy's. Even the thread I used in making these came from a friend who is leaving town and no longer sews. I received a bag of cotton thread which I have been using up as there were bits and pieces of lots of colours.

Hope you have a bit of Pink in your day too.

Happy days.
Bev C

Oh, how I would love a tour through your garden! Your pink flowers are so pretty! We still have to wait a while for them to bloom.

The rose is gorgeous! I will have to see if it is available here. I started pruning and fertilizing my roses this week, so I have a wait before I can gather a bouquet. Thanks for the pink tour.

Hello Bev,
That rose is gorgeous and what a lovely lily. I have not grown lilies in a while. I have not grown them in the ground but in containers. Maybe next year. Your pillow slips are so pretty and fresh looking. The print is perfect for slips. I have seen some YouTub videos on how to make them without a pattern. I will put that on my list of "things I will like to do". Have a wonderful day.

Gorgeous flowers! Those roses are so full, they remind me of peonies. And those pink lilies are such a wonderful bright pink color. Thanks for sharing your beautiful garden and flowers with us. Very inspiring.

Your roses and lily are so beautiful ... I'm ashamed to admit I have neglected my roses :(

Sue said...

Gorgeous pinkness Bev. I love those beautiful roses and can understand you forgetting where you planted the bulbs, I'd have done the same but mine possibly would never have been seen again!

Terry said...

I've never seen a pink Easter Lily! I've only seen the white ones. Yours is lovely! :0)
