Pretty in Pink



Yet another photo from my archives, because the days are gray and I am dreaming of spring.  

I am also making sugar cakes for my bees.  I swear I worry about them like they are children.  

I have been looking here and here for spring planting ideas.  

This one is a tried and true source for seeds.  

If you need a bit more color in your day, check out the home of this lady.  

So, what's been on your mind lately?

  2. Dreaming of spring? No, not me. I'm dreaming of the Super Bowl and hoping the Patriots are in the game

  5. Lovely little bloom! Such a soft pink color!

    I actually wouldn't mind seeing a little more snow before then, though...I know, I know...I'm in the minority! ha.

  8. Sugar Cakes for the bees? Sweet!
    Do you keep bees? It isn't something I could do but I love the honey they produce...so sugar cakes, tell me more. Mom worries about the bees too, but we seem to have lots of them.

  11. Hi Michelle, Spring ... ahhh yes, can't wait. Thanks for the nice teaser. Bet you don't have as much grey as we do tho. :-) I do think this is a great time of year to feature flowers from last spring, summer, or fall. Just not that much color out there now. Take care and thanks for your blog. John

  12. So nice that you worry about your bees. Love your blossom. I'm thinking of how I can keep my new dog out of all the gardens I am planning. xx

  15. I'm dreaming of spring, too. Our next experiment will be polenta. Husband wants to plant a variety of corn that can only be found in seed form. It's supposed to make fantastic polenta, but we'll have to grow, dry and grind it ourselves.

  17. I think keeping bees would be so fun.
    I always think of the movie, FRIED GREEN TOMATOES when I think of bees. Are you the BEE KEEPER. ::))

  25. As much as I love spring, I am hoping for a bit more winter. Time is passing too quickly.

  26. Having spent 30+ winters in Michigan and South Dakota, I certainly understand your desire to dream of spring. Nothing wrong with that! I've been taking care of a friend who had major surgery last week. She picked up the 'Downton Abbey' series in preparation for her recuperation and I've been watching that with her. So, convalescence and Downton have been on my mind. (It's been a nice distraction from work.)

  32. Glad I stumbled onto your blog. I've spent a little time enjoying your photography. It is always fun to see the world through another photographer's eyes. I'll visit again soon! P.S. I'm looking for a little color in my gray world here in Utah as well!
