In The Pink!

Lavatera "Barnsley" In The New Garden

Welcome New and Old Friends to "A Year Of Finding Love," my blog that is a daily practice I've developed to find love and beauty.  I find its the little things, the simple, the overlooked that imbue my life with awe and love...,  Usually found in nature, children, art...  My camera with me always, forever on the lookout for love...  ~ Thank you for joining me.

So I'm happy to report that there is a profusion of pink in the garden at our new house plenty of fodder for future 
Beverley's Pink Saturday  ~ Thank you Beverley for featuring my blog in this week's posting.
I truly appreciate all the support you give to us budding bloggers:)
Since moving into our new home last week friends have written and called to ask how I'm doing with the huge task of unpacking and settling in... Actually, I'm doing quite well, all things considered - (gone for 3 days racing in the middle of the move, arrival of friends from out of town with their 2 girls for 6 days, CG dropping a chair on his foot and breaking his big toe...etc.) I'm feeling really quite "In The Pink!"

I've decided to share some of my pink images from the new garden, and one of an adorable cottage just a few minutes away that had an entryway just smothered in baby pink roses... I couldn't resist taking a photo...  Hope you enjoy...

This little bird and his family lives in the pink rose bush - a handy spot for the feeder!

This little cottage has such a beautiful entrance...

Happy Pink Saturday!!!

Such beautiful flowers you have in your garden. I wish mine looked like yours. Even if they did, they would look horrible by now because of the HEAT! Happy PS to you.
