Pink Pink, Everywhere Pink Pink



Hello, everybody...



 I wanted to show you  my new cool bag my daughter, Stacy, and her family
gave me for Mother's Day.




with bathing goodies inside...

this is the first time I've had ROME HONEYSUCKLE AMORE before and
I. LOVE. IT. !























AND...I love this adorable bag.




Can you see that it
has SPARKLES....?

It does and
I do love me some sparkles.

Notice my pretty PINK ROSE here...?

My
KNOCK OUT ROSES
have just
about bloomed
their silly selves
CRAZY !!

They are just beautiful, even in this terrible drought....

we HAVE watered them more...making things pretty around here for the NEXT OWNER...if ever there IS a next owner.
*HEAVY SIGH

My very good blogging buddy, VEE at A HAVEN FOR VEE
told me last year to NOT dead-head the little rose bushes when they finished blooming for the season.
She said I would have even MORE roses on the bushes....

Sooo....I did what she said and JUST LOOK how loaded that bush is...
I am thrilled....thank ya, Vee !!


I can't leave you without SOMEthing to snack on...


Something PINK.....

and SOMEthing RED....as in ......STRAWBERRIES

I love the bag and the goodies inside...what a neat gift! And your roses! Gorgeous. I have a climber, I'm wondering if I should be deadheading it. I always have and it's doing good.

Those strawberries look delish! :)

XO,
Jane

Love the bag and the sweet smelling gifts - so lovely. Who knew that trick about the roses? Yay for Vee! I wonder if it works for any rose bush? Pink roses are my favorites (along with white ones).

Kathleen Grace said...

Love those roses but what does dead-head mean? I do not know anything about gardening and I would like to plant flowers in my back yard someday.

Vee said...

I'm very impressed with your roses! Judith at Lavender Cottage gave me that tip. I'm hoping it'll work for mine, but there are no buds yet.

Your house is going to sell to the perfect buyers. I'm sure of it.

Great Mother's Day gifts...hope that you're pampering yourself with those great products.

Maureen said...

This is almost pretty overload! Everything is delightful. It's too early for roses to bloom here so I'm drinking in the loveliness of yours!

Jeanne said...

Hi bj, your awesome purse and all the pink stuff would make me happy too. Love the bling and your Knockout roses are gorgeous. Mine are still budding but no roses yet. Soon. Mine are bubblegum pink. I cut mine way back this spring. They were too overgrown and leaning over. We'll see how they bloom this year.

Love you much and wishing you a buyer soon.

Ann said...

NanaDiana said...

Well, I am drooling once again- partially for the food and mostly for those roses. I lost all my rose bushes this season. Gorgeous! I love your sweet bag and goodies, too- xo Diana

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Bj, you aren't supposed to deadhead roses? What about after they bloom??? I have Knockouts, and now I'm wondering if I left them alone if they would do better???

Love your sparkly bag and gifts.

XO,

Sheila

Beverly said...

Pink, pink everywhere, and so pretty. Love your new bag. And, your roses are glorious. We were just saying ours need water. Rain is forecast Monday, and we are hoping to hold until then. Water bills are so high in our county.

Happy Pink Saturday, my dear BJ.

Madeline's Album said...

Your roses are so pretty!

Love the bag of B&BW goodies. The bag is exceptional. You'll enjoy that.

Just be patient. Your home will sell to someone who will love it as much as you.

Organized Island said...

Those are so pretty! Love your pink roses - pink is my favorite color. What a delight to find it featured :)

Pinkolicious! Oh, my, BJ, you have me smiling.

Beautiful gift BJ ...Love the roses too. Wish I could grow them, but the deer love them as much as I do.
You always fix delicious snacks.
If I lived next door, I would find an excuse to come over real often.

Great bag and pretty roses!

Carol OurSearsKitHome said...

Yay for Vee! She is wonderful.
What a lovely bag and gift. I am attracted to sparkly and shiny things too.
It is stressful waiting for a house to sell. I'm going to put your house sale on my prayer list.
Be blessed, BJ! You sure are a blessing!

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Hugs...BIG ones!

Your roses are wonderful. I have knockout roses too and they have been so pretty this year. To deadhead or not to deadhead, that is the question...lol I have some I do and some I don't. What I love about the knockout roses is they are so forgiving. I just purchached an antique rose. I am excited to see just what it will do.
And boy did you make that sweet pink treat look fabulous! I know what I want to snack on today.
Have a great week
Becky
