Hello and welcome to Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly of How Sweet the Sound. Thank you Beverly for hosting this fun event.

I'd like to take this time to wish you all a Happy and Blessed Mother's Day. Whatever you do I wish you much happiness.

Today for Pink Saturday I have my pretty wisteria blooms to show you. I know they are not pink but just about any pic I take in my house has pink in it. LOL

The blooms are so pretty and the scent is heavenly!

Here's some growing up a tree out behind our house. We just threw some vines out and they grew up a dead tree.

You can see it winding up the tree here.

Here' s some lilac's from my garden.

My wisteria in bloom a few years ago. Molly the Newf under it.

Some lilacs from my garden.

I love to decorate in the color lavender this time of the year.

A pretty lavender cross stitch tote I made a few years ago.

Thank you so much for stopping by it was so nice to visit with you. I wish you a wonderful Mother's Day.
Blessings to ya. Shirl

Happy Pink Saturday and Happy Mother's Day, Shirl. Please give my best wishes to Jen, too.

I can't think of a more beautiful and fragrant combination than lilacs and wisteria. Thank you for sharing.

I love your wisteria. Every year when I see it in bloom I say I am going to plant some, but I haven't gotten around to it yet. I really don't even know how to get it started. I especially love your green hobnail vase. It looks so pretty with the lovely blooms in it. Hope you have a lovely Mother's Day.

Oh, wisteria and lilacs...I could have them in my garden all year long and be a happy camper. I think they make all of the other flowers jealous. Beautiful bouquets and a happy weekend to you.

Shirley, your pics are just beautiful. You have the prettiest things, from those gorgeous doilies, your own crafts, the beautiful flowers and vases. I am in serious envy of your jadite! I would love to see your home in person, although that might not be good, I don't think I would want to leave! Wishing you a sweet and happy Mother's Day!

Hi Shirl!
I think you may be the same Shirl that I recently talked cross stitch with??!!
Your purse with the cross stitch insert is beyond words Gorgeous!
The pic of your "puppy" in the wisteria is the sweetest thing . . . and how lucky you are to have white lilacs!
Happy Mothers Day to you!
