Six Shots of Color for Pink Saturday

You've probably figured out I've put myself on a count down. I don't know why, just something in my head that said "Hmmm, Ten Things to Begin With, Nine-Patch Know-How, the next post should really be eight-maids-a-milking." My mind does things like that from time to time. So today (six on the countdown) I thought I'd post Six Shots of Color. But which color?

Well, I recently discovered How Sweet The Sound and the idea of "Pink Saturday." I'm not sure of all the rules but it seems to be just post something pink. Which sounds easy enough. And notice how nicely that combines with my desire to blog on color. So here are flowers in six shades of pink from spring and summer photos.

1. Apple Blossoms2. Columbine

3. Cosmos
4. Old Fashioned Bleeding Heart
5. Coneflower
6. Hollyhock


  1. Hi Lochlanina,

    Best, Pennie

  2. Delighted with each one of your pink flowers... It is the Color of LoVe. It is the Color of LiFe.

    Love, Ann

  22. Thank you everyone for your loving comments.

    I take a lot of nature photos. I think I actually have more photos of flowers than I have of my family -- but then, flowers sit still. :-)

    To answer Dana's question: The flowers do come from my own gardens, all except the columbine which I saw at a public gardens.

  23. Hi, I'm bj and very glad to meet you.
    I HAVE to tell you that when I first saw the name of your blog, I thought, Oh, dear, she's didn't spell PEACE right.....hahaha...the laugh is on me! NOW, after reading your pretty blog, I "get it"!
    Your pink flowers are lovely...

  24. I love the flowers, they are divine! I don't get to see a *pink* columbine too often, that was a treat, and I always love bleeding hearts!
