Pink Saturday

Jun 192010

In the midst of  grey, bleak days of winter it’s lovely to get a splash of colour in the garden.

Welcome to Pink Saturday!

We’ve had a number of cold, grey days so far this winter.  Ok, I won’t complain about the rain because we’re still on water restrictions here & our dams will take years to fill up again …. but that doesn’t mean I can’t whinge about the cold, lol.  How lovely though to go outside and have these frilly camelias smiling back at you.

…..well they were actually from my aunt’s garden. They look so bright & happy – just what is needed to brighten up the day.

In our backyard we also found a surprise splash of colour. Here they are sitting in an unglamorous pot amongst a few gardening tools – beautiful bright pink cyclamen.

…. just right to chase the gloom away. The sun also came out long enough to snap these photos – what a difference it makes.


… And now for our weekly challenge – here is a delightful participant I’d like to introduce you to –
