nce upon a time, when I was a little girl, my mother planted hundreds of pink roses all around the hurricane fence that surrounded our yard. I remember being on my bicycle with my friend Linda Isby leaning on that fence and the aroma of all the pink roses.

P.S. A lovely surprise a teddy bear of mine was chosen for a beautiful collage treasury on etsy. It's called Fairies, Weddings, Bears, Oh My. The treasury was created by Hoganfe. One of her fabrics that she uses to create cotton candy bags is filled with a pink rose design, sigh! mmmmmmmmmmmaybe I'll put that on my wish list to fill with paint brushes to carry them when I paint the roses pink.

Ribbons & Roses note cards with pink envelopesWishing you a very Happy Pink Saturday.

Roses are always beautiful and inspiring. And you manage to let us see the best of them! I love how your photos and stories trigger me too. My grandmother had a climbing rose on her cottage house, a rambler, I loved it. Sadly they decided to build a garage against that wall. Now it is my turn to plant as many roses in our garden as I can! Thanks for your beautiful post, have a lovely pink Saturday!
