Pink Saturday

I grow my mother's favorite flowers in my garden. She would choose carnations and their spicy scent over any other flower. I love how they are always in bloom at Mother's Day.

The Jupiter's Beard is spreading like wild fire. I love it though. So delicate.

Sweet William blooming in an old wine barrel.

Hope you all have a wonderful spring Saturday.

I will be going to lunch with my daughter today. Love being taken to lunch.  Who doesn't?

The flowers are gorgeous! I had that same little ceramic piece with the birds but my birds had more browns and blues in them. I have no idea whatever happened to it. It would have been perfect for my patio. Darn. Happy Mothers Day, my friend.

Carnations are always one of my first choices when I buy flowers, because of that spicy scent and they last a long time! Have a great Mother's Day!
