Pretty In Pink and NQC

I have a selection of pink flowers for you to enjoy.
I wish I could say that all were blooming in my garden,but that is not the case.
The upside is that I don't have to pull weeds in the gardens these are in.I think this is a win win situation. I get to enjoy the flowers and don't have to worry about weeds.


I am again taking you to The English Gardens in Winnipeg.
I love roses but don't have that special touch to grow them,so I find them in other gardens and can still enjoy them.


I have also never been able to grow the beautiful large Dahlias.


Here is a side view of the same flower.It is so pretty and has such a soft colour.


A perfect little rosebud and it is in a sweet pink colour.


This rose is somewhat different,in that it has so many petals.I think this may be an old-fashioned rose.
Whatever the case,I thought it was lovely.


I will be busy every evening this coming week. No,I am not going away,but National Quartet Convention has started in Louisville,Kentucky and I will be watching this on live streaming video each evening.I would love to be there in person,but this is better than nothing.
I said all that to say that if I don't comment on your blog it is because I am enjoying music such as is heard in the following video.

Here is a video from last year's convention,featuring my favourite guys,Legacy Five,singing,Strike Up The Band.This was only the sixth time Matt Fouch,the bass singer,was on stage with this group.

  3. I like each and every one of your pink flowers. I also like the idea of enjoying the flowers without the weeding. Enjoy the Quartet Convention.

  4. The pink posies are all beautiful. I'm not going to try to pick a favorite. I enjoyed the Legacy Five video clip, too. What fun you'll have this week listening to all the quartets. Enjoy!

  5. Ahhhh--wish you could be in Louisville in person --but I know you'll love watching them on TV....

    Gorgeous PINKS. We have some beautiful pink roses in our yard. The pinks seem to do well...

    Hugs,

  6. Each and every photo is stunning! First the just gorgeous soft bud, then the wonderful dahlia exploding through the screen like pink fireworks. And I have never seen any rose like the last one!! It almost looks like a huge peony. This group is good and this is the first time I have heard them. Do you watch America's Got Talent? That is our favorite show, and they have some wonderful singers this season. I think you would LOVE Forte! You can likely find them on YouTube. I hope you have a blast watching your shows!

  7. What a gorgeous bunch of flowers and lovely photo work! I've not been worrying about the weeds in my flowers lately as I know it is only a matter of time before we get a good frost, and that will take care of the weeds for me too. We've been having quite a bit of rainy weather the last few weeks, so that kind of dampens my desire to be out weeding anyway--not that that's ever high up on my list of things to do!

  14. Loved all your "pinks." The photography was great too. The dahlias reminded me of some large ones my grandma used to grow; however, I remember them being more yellows and rusts and purple.

    Have a great day!

  23. Ruth, I am so sorry about the above mess I made on your blog. I don't know what happened but it left four comments from me instead of one....and then I erased them all by mistake....

    Anyway, what I said was all the flowers would make a beautiful bouquet...Such gorgeous shades of pink...I do hope you enjoy your concerts and that the music makes your heart sing....

  32. Beautiful pink blossoms! I'm beginning to think it's much easier to let someone else garden and then I'll enjoy their flowers. :))

  33. The very first photo is my fav....but, the other's are certainly running a very close race.
    Sam and I attended the National Quartet Convention in Kentucky a few years ago.....It was GREAT!! Enjoy all the music and the Blessings..

  34. I have the exact same multi-petalled pink rose. It's called "Gertrude Jeckyll." It's kind of an odd name for such a pretty rose, isn't it?!

    I love dahlias, too. My neighbor grows "Dinner Plate Dahlias," and they are as wide as a dinner plate!
