Showing Some Pink in the Garden for Pink Saturday

The weather has been beautiful here. Rain is in the forecast, but today it is a pretty day. My flowers are starting to bloom and my yard is showing so much color.

One of my PINK Amaryllis plants is just starting to open. This bulb was given to me about 4 years ago from a friend for my birthday. Every year when it blooms, I think of her. What a wonderful gift to give someone that loves to garden. They can enjoy it year after year.

I have a area that my PINK Alstroemeria is growing wild. Every year they take over more area. They will stay in bloom till December and I will have fresh flowers for my vases till then.
I know this isn't PINK, but I just love these double wash tubs on a stand filled with Marigolds. I like to place galvanized buckets around the yard and plant different colored flowers. Here is a vintage bucket filled with Ranunculus. I think the pink ones are the prettiest but I like to mix a variety of color. These will come back every year so I leave the root balls in the dirt and I will plant annuals over the top of them for the summer months.

I still have no bloomers down in this frost holler but I can see some of the annuals pokin' up through the earth.

God bless and enjoy this Spring Day sweetie!!!
