Happy Spring/Happy Pink Saturday!


Spring has finally arrived here in sunny California!  It's hard to believe last week we had storms with 50 mph winds and this week has been so lovely and has reached 80!  My plants are so much happier!  Since it's so beautiful outside I decided to share the few things I have blooming right now.  First, I just wanted to say thanks for the get well wishes.  This has been the strangest bug I have ever had.  First it was a chest cold then when I got way too happy that I was feeling better it went to my head! :(  Then when I started to feel better again it went back to my chest and now I have laryngitis too!  Lucky for me I can post this without saying a word! lol  

Sophie was way too tired from her morning at the salon to model her new pink bows so I had to take the picture during her nap!  I'm not sure how a dog who doesn't go outside except to go potty can look so bad after a month.  When I pick her up I swear they must have switched dogs cause she looks so pretty!

Thank goodness for azaleas or I wouldn't have any color in my yard now.
My lemons managed to survive the terrible winds!  

I even found some strawberry blossoms from my little plants I bought last year.

My million bells are loving the sunshine too!
My Japanese maple with all it's new growth.  
I saved the best for last...the beautiful blue sky!  We weren't sure when we were ever going to see it again!  

Thanks for stopping by today.  Hope you all have a lovely weekend.  Mine will be filled with with our grandchildren's baseball, soccer and softball games.  Make sure you visit Beverly at How Sweet The Sound to see all the other wonderful pink Saturday posts.

  1. How cute Sophie looks all curled up & cozy sleeping in her pink bed :) She looks so sweet with her pink bows ~ Your flowers are lovely; it will be some time yet before I'll have any flowers to see in my gardens, as it's till way to cold out for them :( I'm anxious to see how many of the Peony plants survived that I transplanted last fall!! Fingers crossed!!

    Wishing you a wonderful & Happy Pink Saturday :)

    Warmest hugs, Brenda

  7. Hi Denise and Happy Pink Saturday!
    Your little Sophie is precious all curled up in her cozy bed. Getting pretty just wore her out. LOL!
    I am sorry you have been fighting a bug that won't go away. I know just how miserable that can be! I hope with the warm sunshine you will soon be over the laryngitis!
    Your flowers are so pretty! I am looking forward to having ours bloom and all the snow melt!
    Lucky you having lemons you can pick off your tree! I am a lemon lover!
    Hugs,

  8. How adorable Sophie looks......My little dog, Hope, was aat the salon today and she looks jusst adorable too. She is sleeping as it was a hard day for her to be away from home. She is only 10#'s and is a house and lap dog. Your lemon looks very nice. My son in law grows several hundred acres of citus in the Imperial Valley.. We all live about 115 miles south of Palm Springs. I enjoyed your blog.

  12. How funny, all the beautiful pink flowers, but we all love Sophie!!! Just the pink bows are enough pink but the flowers and of course our beautiful blue sky just tops it off.

    Enjoy and have a wonderful Pink Saturday and great rest of the week.
