Saturday Photo Hunt ---- Pink






PINK


This is the second time tnchick has set pink as the theme for Saturday Photo Hunt. Last time I had no hesitation in what I wanted to post. My daughter and I called the occasion the Princess Birthday Party and I was sure that I could not top that one. But this photo of an Astilbe in my front garden is quite pink, in its full glory last week when I took this.


There were bees buzzing around it but I was in a hurry and did not have time to take one of those great insect macro photos that everyone seems to capture. Well that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Along with Hostas, Astilbes are my very favourite plants which you could tell if you came to see my garden.


HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND EVERYONE

AND HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY TO THOSE CELEBRATING IT

Oh that's lovely. We had an astilbe but it hasn't done well. Or it was trampled on by George. One or the other!

love the second shot, and I'll just have to prove that pink can be prettier than we think.. I was scared about pink at my brother's wedding too!

Beautiful plant Astilbe. I have tried to grow some in our garden, but they don't seem to survive, must be our soil isn't conducive with their needs.
Lovely photographs, and you have shown the colour pink admirably.

Love Granny

There are no astilbes in my corner of the world, they look wonderfully pink and I am glad you didn't post a macro shot of a bee :)
Happy weekend to you too!!
