Pink Saturday ~ Mother's Day

HAPPY PINK SATURDAY..........sending special good wishes to all Mothers, Moms, Mums, Mamas and Mommies out there as we celebrate Mother's Day tomorrow.

My beautiful pink rhododendron opened last week for an early celebration.......

.........and here was a visitor, stopping by to share the nearby bird seed.......which by the way has been dropped under that feeder and is growing into nice healthy plants!  Looks like I'll have a sunflower patch this Summer!  Guess taking the trees down and opening up this little area to more direct sun has benefits after all.

Stop by How Sweet the Sound to wish Beverly a Happy Mother's Day, and take time to visit some other Pink Saturday participants on this special weekend.

I wont be stopping by your pink blogs for a couple of weeks as I can't take my laptop on the African safari!  I am leaving some scheduled posts though so stop by when you have time.  Will miss you but hope to have something pink to show you from the big adventure when I get back!


  1. Remembering your Mum today Mary with great affection.
    Have a wonderful holiday and I will look forward to seeing the pics when you get back.
    BTW, there is internet access in many of the camps in the bush so you might be able to touch base.
    Lots of love

  2. Your rhodo's are beautiful, Happy Mother's Day!

  4. Gorgeous Rhododenrons!! Our here will be blooming in a few weeks. I have a large one in my front yard that is usually covered with flowers when it blooms!

  5. Happy Pink Saturday and Happy Mother's Day, dear Mary. I will hold you close in my heart as you adventure in Africa.

    Your rhododendron is so pretty. We hope to plant some in our woods one day. I think we are finished planting this spring. Hot days are almost here.

  23. Mary, beautiful pink flowers. Squirrels are not my favorite animals of late. The ones residing here have destroyed our outdoor cushions this winter and now I've noticed they have been gnawing bark off the Japanese Maple. It has killed one branch already. Grrrrr Not certain what to do about it before they destroy the entire tree. Any ideas?
    Glad you have left some auto posts while you are out with the big animals.


I would enjoy reading your comment - thanks so much for stopping by.
