Pink Saturday

Happy Pink Saturday friends~
Can you believe how fast this day rolls around every week? The weeks are going by so fast. I hate to say it, but summer is really just flying by!

We'll be thinking about Christmas before we know it. To be honest, I'm thinking about Christmas now! I always do this time of year.
.......Because I'm thinking about Christmas in July, I thought I would share my little teacup Christmas tree.
Ok, now that I've got that out of my system, let's move on!

These are the wild roses that grow profusely along the shores of Prince Edward Island and they smell absolutely divine! The scent of roses and evergreens is quite intoxicating to me. The roses being a pleasant sight this time of year, waft their fragrance through the air as if on fairies' wings. And the heady scent of the evergreens are a very lovely reminder of Christmas..... I love it!!
Would you like to see what is behind them?

One of our many beaches! PEI boasts the most beautiful beaches on this side of Canada. This is where Hubby and I like to spend our vacation.
And these are my roses in one of my teacups. They have the same scent as the wild roses and I just simply cannot get enough of it!
My little French inspired watering can, adorned with a rose, of course!
How about three pink roses all in a row?
How about a little flower cart? This flower cart graces the room just underneath our front windows. Pity the baseboard heat thingy is there!
I leave you with a rose-tinted sky that I captured on camera in my back yard. God sure knows how to paint a picture, doesn't He? Isn't it glorious?Please drop by Beverly's at How Sweet the Sound to visit her and all the other pink participants today. Hubby and I have been on vacation all week and we have three more weeks to go, so I'm not going to be posting much in the next little while. I will have lots of pictures to share with you when I get back. And because I've just posted my 200th post about a week ago, I will be having a Giveaway when I come back, so stay tuned! Click on the link or the Pink Saturday button on my sidebar to go visit the other pinkies.

NOTE: Before I go, I would like to mention that my mother is still in the hospital and she is not doing very well. She needs a lot of prayer. Thank you to those of you who are praying for her!

The Lord bless you all.


  1. Beautiful!!

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend and a blessed "Pink Saturday."

  2. Good morning Sandi! Your wild roses are beautiful and I love the artful way you displayed them in the teacart. I just told my hubby that I want to visit Prince Edward Island. It's gorgeous. Thank you for sharing the sunset. The Lord certainly knows how to blend color, doesn't He? I pray that you and your mom will find comfort and peace. Have a great vacation!

  3. Awesome sky line and all the other pinks as well, beautiful part of the world. Is it far from Green Gables?

    Happy PINK Saturday, Candy
