Showing Some Pink in the Garden Today

Today for Pink Saturday I have walked through my garden and snapped some pictures of some pretty pinks!
















This is Charlie our African Spur Turtle. He must weigh over 60 lbs. You can't tell in this picture how big he really is. I cannot pick him up he is so heavy! He has the run of the yard and the dogs are scared of him! They tell me he will get around 200 lbs one day. I feed him vegetables so that he will leave my garden flowers alone.










Yum, look at all these pink peaches on one of our peach trees! While I was walking around with my Grandson taking pictures today we came across this baby scared bunny. We picked him up and I put him in a box and my Grandson fed him some cabbage and grass. When our son came to pick up our grandson he was not happy with Grandma sending him home with a pet bunny. I love being a Grandma!

Happy Pink Saturday, dear Ann. I have missed you. How is your mother? I have had you all in my prayers.

Thank you for sharing this walk around the garden with your grandson. I love being a grandmother, too. We are going out to dinner today to celebrate the end of the school year. I have a hard time believing my guy is going to be a seventh grader. He truly does light up my life.

I was so excited to read about your avocado grove. You just can't know how much I would love to pick a few. I grew up with an avocado tree in the backyard, and we had yummy avocado dishes often.
