Pink Saturday and Tea in the Garden

Hello everyone and welcome to Pink Saturday with our sweet hostess Beverly ~

I am also joining Bernideen for her Tea in the Garden ~
My roses are finally blooming and I took some photos of one bush heavy with the fragrant flowers.

I love the look of the petals sprinkled upon the grass; so prettty!

Of course I couldn't wait to cut some and bring them indoors to enjoy.

In a little pitcher with petals strewn about a lace topped table.

Or in a teacup...

And of course, I always have to put some in a teapot.

Oh my, the fragrance is heavenly!  Love my roses!

Happy Pink Fourth of July and thank you for visiting Rose Chintz Cottage today. Wishing you all a lovely and pink long holiday weekend.

Sharing from my heart~ Sandi


  1. Your roses are a gorgeous pink shade! They must smell heavenly. I don't have one rose in my gardens and I think I need to remedy that soon. Are you going to see Prince William and Catherine? Have a great holiday weekend! Blessings, Pamela

  2. I love roses and miss having them in my yard. Maybe next year I will put some new ones in. Yours is so lovely.

  3. Sandi, Your pink roses are just lovely! I like how you display them in tea cups and teapots...I'll bet we'll be seeing them for Tea Time Tuesday! Thanks for sharing from your garden.
    Blessings and hugs, Beth

  4. Happy pink/ red white blue day! Lovely post! DE

  7. Such beautiful roses... I can almost smell them. Love them in the teacup.

  8. HI Sandi,
    Happy Pink Saturday to you, too :) :) The roses look beautiful. I like the petals strewn about the tab le. It's very romantic :) :) Have a lovely weekend. Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

  9. Nothing lovelier than a rose.....except maybe the face of a child. Your roses are so very lovely.
    Have a pinkishly beautiful Independence Day weekend....

  10. Good Afternoon Sandi, Your roses are exquisite. Just today, I noticed a lavender crepe myrtle at the grocery store which had lavender petals sprinkled beneath the bush. I love the picture of your petals sprinkled on the tablecloth. Keeping you close in my prayers dear friend. God bless.

  11. So pretty flowers!!! Love them all!
    Happy 4th July!

    Happy Pink Saturday!

  12. Pretty, I like the roses in the teapot. So elegant.

  13. My vry favorite flowers. You have a big bush and it seems to be doing well. Most of mine have stopped blooming due to the intensive heat.

  14. Oh wow, how totally gorgeous, Sandi!!! Your roses are breathtaking!! Happy Pink Saturday to you--I hope you have a wonderful weekend!!!


  15. So pretty Sandi! Love the sprinkled pink blooms on the ground too! Happy PS and Happy Forth of July!

  16. Wonderful photographs. My roses are just at the budding stage so I cant wait til they look as pretty as yours.

  17. Happy Pink Saturday Sandi Sweetie...
    What a beautiful pink share. I love seeing your gorgeous rose bush in full bloom, and how enchanting they are shared along the way inside. Love seeing them inside the tea pot, and so appropriate in the tea cup as well. Beautiful when strung along a path around the table. Made for such pretty colors and ambiance. I could smell the beautiful scents clear out here in the Phoenix desert.

    Hope you have a beautiful Pink Saturday and a wonderful 4th of July sweetie. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

  18. Hi Sandi, the garden is looking beautiful with all the blooms of summer. I bet it smells heavenly too. Char
