Pink Saturday Salutes the Flowers of Spring


Fifty Shades of Pink

On Monday I was walking on Madison Avenue enjoying the sun and warmer air of spring. I made sure to walk past my favorite florist and I was well rewarded for my efforts. There were flowers everywhere spilling on to the sidewalk and practically into the  street, and they were all beautiful. I knew I had found my photographs for this week's Pink Saturday.

I'm not sure what the origin of is for these lilacs, but they are beautiful. It's about a month too soon for lilacs to be blooming in New York, but these are a welcome harbinger of what we have to look forward to. 

It's also too soon for tulips to be fully in bloom here, but I can be content with these beauties for now. I love the local tulip festival, but this year I (think) I will be away. I wonder what I'll find blooming in England and France. 

Sometimes I have difficulty finding photographs I want to use for Pink Saturday, but in addition to these fabulous flowers I found a movie shoot that would have been a good choice, too. Melissa McCarthy was filming a Christmas movie in the neighborhood and she was attired in hot pink. The movie is yet unnamed, but when it's streaming or in theaters, you saw it here first. 

I hope you've enjoyed a glimpse of springtime in New York. We've had some colder than spring weather, but mostly it's been lovely. Spring is my favorite season and every year I'm reminded once again about the joy of warmth and blooms and longer days, and all the promise that lies ahead.  

As ever, thanks for visiting and good wishes for the week ahead.

I love these beautiful flowers. So glad you are having a nice spring. Utah is still in the middle of winter with another big snow storm forecast for tomorrow and over 800 inches of snow in the mountains. I still hold out hope for spring to come. Have a good week!

You did find some wonderful colors, Carol, and also went for a lovely walk in the neighborhood. And, when I read about the Melissa McCarthy holiday movie, I will remember where I read about it first!
