Pink Saturday Preach!

PINK SATURDAY has rolled around again! The temps are becoming warmer in all our regions (least, I think). Everyone is busy with springtime activities, strangers are smiling, kids are loving school...whoops, I guess I got carried away. Anyway, while we are on the subject of school and this time of year, let us not forget Prom. In fact, there may even be a few in process today.
Please, please, when buying your PINK prom flowers, select a place that donates a percent to the Susan Komen Foundation. I don't mean for this to be a advertisement but this foundation was started in a woman's name, Susan Komen who had breast cancer. The foundation was started by Susan's sister. It was a promise from her to Susan on Susan's last days among us. There are plenty of florist that donate and after all, that's what PINK is about, isn't it?
Keeping in the spirit of things and PINK SATURDAY, I've included some flowers found in my yard. These pictures were found on various sites and are not mine but they are a true representation of what I see here in New England. Queen Elizabeth rose.....
Milkweed....

Fireweed.....


Lady slipper.......



Rabbit's foot fern......





Goat's rue......





New England blazing star......






Rugosa rose.....




Wild geranium......



Mountain Laurel.....



Twin flower, so tiny I don't think I could photograph mine!



And finally Joe Pye weed.

Lovely pink flowers! Your redwork is getting me more and more intrigued! I so wish I had more time to craft, maybe I should just make time.

I will post some pink flowers for you soon.

Awesome flowers!! Makes me want to go on a garden tour like right now! I think it a good thing to buy where they donate to the foundation. A very good post saying so too!

Jean said...

No matter what I am buying, I would much rather buy it from a seller that donates to good causes and I did not know about the flowers so will keep that in mind. Thanks for the infor.

Wonderful post for this l♥vely Pink Saturday. This is one morning of the week that I sit back, stroll from blog to blog and indulge myself surrounded by my favorite color.

I was unaware that some florists donate to the Susan Komen charity. Thanks for making us all aware of that-it's a great cause. Beauatiful pictures!
