Happy Pink Saturday!! April 24, 2010

If April showers bring May flowers, what do May flowers bring? The Pilgrims (This was a favorite joke of the third graders I taught for many years.) Hello, sweet and kind friends! Once again it is time to show our favorite pinks. Today, I am showing pinks from inside and out at Bunny Cottage. My garden has really been putting on a show this year. We had an extremely cold winter for Central Texas and lots of rain so far this spring. Nothing helps the garden to grow like rain sent from God. I can water all day with hose water, but when rain comes from heaven, the plants drink it up. Please visit Ms. Beverly and our other pink participants by going here:
Thank you so much for your visit today! It always brightens my day when you do. Sending lots of love and happiness your way!

Hi sweet Vicki,
I love that silly joke! Too cute! I agree, our garden thrives on rain water from God, the hose just can't compare! We have had the same weather as you did this winter, and noticed how our garden is really blooming well this Spring! Yours is beautiful!!! I love all of your roses and flowers. The birdbath and all the plates are so pretty in your garden. Wonderful ideas!!! I love your beautiful cup and the gorgeous wall pocket sweet Ann made for you! Thank you for sharing all the pink inside and outside of your happy and beautiful Bunny Cottage! Much love to you sweet friend! Love, Paula

Hi Vicki,
What beautiful flowers grow in your garden! I love the china inside and outside as well! I wouldn't dare hang china on a fence in my yard because the wind would be sure to blow them off. Thank you for sharing your delightful post. I am not participating this week in Pink Saturday but I wish you a gorgeous weekend, my friend.


C'est Moi, Julie Marie said...

Hello my friend... I could just look at your lovely pinks all day... you have so many beautiful vintage floral china pieces, each one so unique and pretty! And your gardens are stunning... if April showers bring May flowers, I should have alot! We have had rain solid for three days now and more predicted! You are right about the gentle rainwater... everything looks so green and alive right now... xoxo Julie Marie PS I still love that old "Mayflower" joke too!

Shirley said...

I am spending time this evening to try to catch up on my blog reading and visiting my special friends. I loved your pink Saturday, the tea cups and your garden were beautiful. I have a doily like yours that my mother made for me many years ago. I have mine put away in my cedar chest for a memory of my mother. Your garden looks so inviting for sharing that cup of tea. I don't think my allergies would like it, but I still love the flowers of spring. Have a wonderful weekend. Your Missouri Friend.

Vicki darling you melt my heart with the photos of the lovely china you post each and everyday. I wish I were a teacup in your cupboard so that I could spend time admiring all your lovelies. Enjoy them and your Sunday my friend.

Hello sweet friend! Your teacup is gorgeous! Your garden is so pretty, and that reminds me, I must get my dishes out there too! I was too late to participate this week. Hopefully next week. Enjoy your week!

I love your china, gardens and inspiration! I am touched by your darling blog!


Valerie@travelingthrough2 said...

Hi Vicki,
Your garden is beautiful, just beautiful. I also like your china, is that a soup cup? Whatever it is it is a beautiful work of art. The joke is funny, I will have to share that with little companion. Happy Monday!

Sares said...

Yep, just as beautiful as I knew it would be! I always love seeing pictures of your garden, it looks like such a magical place!

Simple Southern Happiness said...

Oh sigh... your garden is so lovely. I would not ever want to leave it. I can only imagine the fragrance wafting through the air. I do want to know where you aquired the heirloom seeds that grow those delightful flowering plates you have as a border? I have never seen them. I watch Martha Stewart all the time and she would always know about special items like this. :)

I know I will be back time and time again to visit the garden just to get a daily dose of calm.

Blessings to you and yours.
