Timely words for me, indeed. You see, the first photo features a dozen beautiful pink roses I found at the grocery store on clearance. I look for them all the time in order to do this to them. But my time ran out as I was busily preparing to fly away for a week and visit my mother in another state. But wouldn't you know it...while I left these behind, I discovered these growing outside a restaurant back in the northern woods of Wisconsin where my mother lives.
After I placed my take-out order, I asked the young gal helping me who planted all the beautiful roses outside. This look came across her face as if she were thinking, "Beautiful roses? I've never noticed any roses outside." Seriously. I kid you not. But she turns to this man sitting behind her who she identified as the owner of the place, and asked him my question. His whole body shifted and he visibly sat straighter as a huge smile crept across his face and he proudly announced, "I planted them." Well, I only further made his day when I asked him if I could take some photos of them.
He might still be smiling for all I know. That would only be fair because everytime I look at these photos, they sure make my heart smile.
I hope you'll enjoy their little faces as much as I have...
There's lots more pink to be seen by visiting Beverly at How Sweet the Sound where you will find a complete listing of all of today's participants in PINK SATURDAY! But before you do that, I wanted to share a blog I've enjoyed visiting of one of our newer Pink Saturday Ladies. Her name is Tammi and the name of her blog is Visions of Vintage.
Thank you for stopping by! I always enjoy my visitors and your sweet comments.
