You have a gorgeous garden~obviously you gather a lot of inspiration here and I would too! Love your peonys, petunias and impatiens, but most of all, your watercolors. They are all of your flowers washed with love.

Thank you for sharing on Pink Saturday! :-)

As I scrolled up your blog, I thought, "is that a pink peony? Looks like a pink peony". I love them...more than roses. They smell so sweet. I, too, am longing for spring. We still have mounds of snow, but tomorrow is March, and with that, spring. Happy Pink Saturday, Karen! hugs, Kathleen

Oh what lovely photos of my favorite color. In flowers, too! :-)

We had some rain, but not enough to wash away all our snow. But March will be here. It will wash away. It will. It will. :-)

And we can plant pink flowers again.

Happy Pink Saturday, dear Karen.

It is raining here today, too. I am gazing out the window by my desk, and everything looks wet and stark. But, I know spring is just around the corner. I'm longing to see your pink peonies again soon.

Donna @ Party Wishes said...

What gorgeous flowers! I just LOVE Peonies but they just don't grow in the heat of Southern California.

I can buy then at the Flower Mart downtown but they are $10 for 2 flowers!

Happy Pink Saturday!

Annie said...

I love pink peonies. My mother had them in her flower garden for years and years. She is in Heaven now, but her pink peonies still bloom.

I love the watercolor pictures. Is this your art? It is very lovely.

Margie said...

Hi Karen, what a beautiful post, I could almost smell the sweetness of the pink peonys. The hues and shades are amazing. I too long for spring flowers. Happy march. Thank you for always reminding me of Pink saturday. hugs Margie.

Vee said...

Your garden is so delightful. I can imagine you seated there with a friend or family member enjoying pleasant conversation or just reading a book...more likely drawing. Peonies are such amazing flowers. I only wished that their season would be longer.

Charlene said...

I can't decide which took my breath away more. The pink peonies or the dovecoat. Where did you get the dovecoat? I have wanted one for so long & this oneis heavenly. Please share your source.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I love impatiens because they are about the only flower that grows well where I live! I don't get enough sun and they thrive in the dappled sunlight that I do get.

The close of the flower stamen is exquisite! Once I feel more comfortable with my SLR camera I want to buy a good close up lens.

Still very cold here and ourt snow did not melt much.
