Stop and See the Flowers Pink Saturday

It's Pink Saturday and it's time to stop and see the flowers. I seem to be taking more flower pictures these days and it's a function of having much more time to stop and see the flowers. Even in the concrete of New York City there are lots of folks who take time to plant and cultivate and to them this post is dedicated. Here are two of the blooms I noted this week.



These photos are on a side street in Brooklyn and I like this one for the sense of the neighborhood that comes with the flowers.

I am feeling much better and so grateful to be just about back to healthy so quickly. I've got a long-scheduled adventure to Staten Island later today and I would have hated to miss it. Hope your Saturday is as sunny and fun as ours in New York City.

Happy Pink Saturday Wishes!

Flowers do brighten things up. I'm at home today and it's a little too hot here this afternoon to do much at all outdoors, so I'm getting somethings done inside. Glad you have nice weather there for enjoying a little trip.

Hollyhocks are such a lovely garden flower. I remember my Mom growing rows of them in the 1950's.

I am always appalled at seeing plants or flowers that are actually growing out of concrete. You found some very pretty ones in the big city.

Buttercup,
so glad you are feeling better. I love that you find the flowers in the city. I was totally amazed at the huge flower containers on the sidewalks of NYC. Beautiful flowers too.Enjoy your Sunday.xoxo,Susie

These are lovely.
I used to fly into New York every couple of months - to attend classes in Brooklyn. (I really miss it.)

One of the things I enjoyed was walking neighborhoods and looking at all the community parks . . . so much beauty.

I am Grateful - knowing you feel much better.

Great Week to YOU.
Happy Full Moon
love & love,

Flowers add so much beauty to our world and our lives. God was good to put them on earth for us to enjoy. Sorry that you have not been feeling well. I'm glad you are better. Have a good week sweet friend.

Very exotic flowers, I'd think you are in Hawai and not New York :).
