Hello and Welcome To Pink Saturday. Please be sure and go to Beverly of How Sweet The Sound... our host for our weekly event, for a list of many lovely and entertaining blogs that celebrate the beautiful color PINK. Thank you, Beverly!

All week I have been enjoying the Burning Bushes that we have in the front of the house....I waited almost too long to take a picture as the leaves are falling fast now. They are lush and green in the summer months and then turn this lovely red in the Fall. Our red leans to the blue tone of red, my favorite, and I see many with the more orange tone too,.....I am sure it has to do with the mineral content of the soil, but no matter what the hue, they are all one of Fall's gorgeous gifts to us as they are truly a beautiful sight mixed with the golds and browns of fall!

And, while out in the yard I spotted a few sweet pale pink Geraniums still pleasing me with a few pretty blooms.

...And, truly, the last rose of summer giving us a gorgeous final show...
I cut the rose with the buds and it is opening prettily in the house. I am enjoying it so much and will sadly miss it when it is gone and will look forward to it's Spring return..
and one little Dianthus, or Sweet William not ready to give up for Old Man Winter....
The temperatures have been in the 40's this week and starting tomorrow we are supposed to have near 60 degree temps for a few days, so hubby and I will be out raking leaves, cutting back roses and making ready for Winter.....

Happy Pink Saturday and thank you to all that come visit and leave me such nice comments....
Enjoy the weekend and have a marvelous week!
Toasty Hugs,

Dear Sweet Jil,
Thank you for visiting my blog. You brought such beauty to me on a very sad day. I had to go to the dr. to get some medicine from the dr. to help. when I go to sleep and wake up I rush to the living room to check oh her and my husband has to spend 30 plus minutes explaining to me she is dead. The Dr. said my grief is too deep to accept the pain.
my other sadness is i have only one sister and i called to tell her amy had died almost 10 minutes after....since this time my only sister has not talked to me...she will not return calls, she moderates my posts and then delets them. that has almost ripped my heart out but my dh said to just leave her alone with her picture of amy on her website. amy would be livid over how she is treating me,
i'm is unbelievable the world can be so ugly especially when it is your own family.
your flowers are goorgeous. thank you for visiting me tonight. my heart is quite heavy.
i'm in no way asking you to get involved, i just love the listening ear.
angel hugs
