Pink and red, plus fur!



Most of our trees are green now, which means we have
a lot of this "pink snow" around our yard...








I walked out on the driveway the other day, about 11AM, and 
saw that 2 sweet roses were smiling at me...



Bluberry craft and hobby time



About 4 hours later, I went back out to get Sam off the 
bus, and they were pretty much laughing...








And, because I haven't posted a pic of my amazing fur baby, 
Molly-No-Tail, in a ridiculously long time...




Give me your best shot at Better in BulkPhotoStory Friday

That's so cool how you got to see the flower before it opened and after, and the fact that you got pictures to capture the prettiness. :)

Kala said...

Lovely to see these colorful blossoms - what a difference 4 hours can make.

blueviolet said...

As beautiful as the petals must be scattered about, I still hate when they fall. :(

Life with Kaishon said...

We barely have a blossom : ( I saw a daffodil today in Philly and I almost caused an accident slowing down and deciding if I should pull over! : ) It is just so flipping cold here still! I am glad you have pink and spring where you are!

WISH I had pink snow! Instead, I have actual snow falling right now outside. UGH!

Beautiful pics!

Heidi said...

Dina these are all soooo pretty.

Serline said...

Gorgeous blooms you've captured, but do they always open up so quickly? We've got lots of "pink snow" around here too; every time I walk by, I pretend they are cherry blossoms and say a silent prayer for Japan. Have a blessed weekend!

Raymonde said...

Beautiful pictures and beautiful kitty! We have a calico that loves posing for pictures. These are fantastic!

Rosie@leavesnbloom said...

It's just aswell our cherry blossom isn't out yet as it would be pink snow here with our stormy weather. Love your perspective on that shot Dina.

Michelle said...

Now there's some "snow" I can appreciate! :) Great photos. I tried capturing fallen blossoms the other day, and my pics didn't turn out. Yours looks lovely.

Trish ~ ♥ ~ said...

I wish we were having pink snow ~ we're still getting the white stuff! It looks beautiful to see all the spring flowers in bloom.

I love the pink flowers from the trees! I've always wanted a magnolia tree, they are so vibrant and well formed. :) Thanks for stopping by!

Dorian Susan said...

Love how you gave your roses emotions....and I remember that pink snow-used to get it in PA first of May when I lived there....here in ME...white snow (again) today. Boo-hoo.

Sue said...

I think I like that pink snow of yours!

Your roses are beautiful.

I love how you described the first picture as pink snow. I bet your yard looks gorgeous with all of those petals everywhere.

Have a great weekend! :)
