Shall We Walk?

It’s Saturday and I thought perhaps we could take a walk through my neighborhood. As you may know, our flowers are kind of happenstance. To be fair, not everyone here lacks gardening skills.  There are some charming and neatly planted flowers on my daily walk.

I thought since we’re all such good friends now, you might like to come along for some glimpses of them from here and there, or is it better to say, hither and yon?

While I was composing this, I realized that I had been rather partial to a certain color that is abundant at the moment. It occurred to me that it was an ideal time to dip my toe into the Pink Saturday parade – at least once and see how it goes.

So put on your walking shoes and let’s see what we can find.

Let’s make our first stop underneath this beautiful canopy of cherry tree blossoms. Lovely.

As we proceed a little further along we see these trees that fascinate me – Redbuds. My husband and I tell ourselves every year we should plant one in our yard. Perhaps we will.

Here we are at our next stop where we can enjoy these azalea blooms. We do have one or two of these in our yard, but they haven’t fully bloomed yet.

Oh, let’s walk around this cul-de-sac. Look at these pansies. Of all the things we’ve seen so far, these are my favorite. I love the pink and yellow combination. It reminds me of the Peace roses we have growing beside of our house.

Here we are, right back where we started. That was quick! This pink dogwood grows in our yard.

Now that we’ve had our walk, would you like to join us on the porch for a cup of tea?

  15. It is a lovely day for a walk and tea on the porch with the new white lanterns.
    Also read about Blossom's new home and although I am sad she is not coming here she is not too far away. I'll just have to visit her sometime.
    After you refresh from giving everyone a tour of your place pop over for a bike ride.
    Happy PINK Saturday ;-)

  22. What a sweet pink post - I'm so envious - nothing is blooming up here yet - well, maybe a couple of crocus. We won't see anything like this for at least another month and then it's scarce. Your photos are beautiful! Welcome and Happy Pink Saturday!

  37. Welcome to your first Pink Saturday, Ginger. I am glad you joined us, and I am glad that you invited us to walk with you.

    This is a gorgeous time of year for blooms in our area, and your photos are stunning. I've always wanted to plant a redbud, too, but I still haven't. I think I am running out of yard.

  38. I can't wait for things to really get into bloom here... right now it's still kind of withered and brown.

    And Dot is very pissed off at me. He has pictures he wants taken... things he needs to say.... and my camera battery has died, so his adventures have been going undocumented. I'm having to ply him with snacks to keep him from doing... something.

  39. Ohhh...that pink pansy is stunning....and Peace roses are amongst my favorite!
