Pink Wonder

Good Morning and Happy Pink Saturday!

I went out before sunrise yesterday and found mist in a low lying field of soybeans. It looked like there was almost a slight frosting on some of the plants-absolutely crazy for July in Kansas.
On Thursday I went early up to KU-Kansas University to shoot some pictures. Below is the classic KU skyline. The building with the flags is Frasier Hall and the tower in the middle is the WWII Memorial Campanile Bell Tower. I live just a few blocks from KU and yes indeed we have hills in Kansas(eastern Kansas anyway).

I am not sure what this flower is but I sure fell in love with it. It was out by Clinton Lake-our local recreational lake. Our city is almost up against it now-it was way out when they built it in the late 1980s.

This last one is a Pink Hydranga I found at one of our local Parks-South Park-It is directly south of the downtown area. When I was kid I used to play there everyday as my school was right next to it. Back then there was an old fire engine we could play on. It actually has two sides to it. The playground side west of Mass St., and the Band Stand side west of Mass St.. I spent many a Wednesday night in the summertime listening to band concerts with my mom and my grandmother. I'll share some pics with you next time of the park. It's a lovely place but not a lot of pink.
Take care, and don't forget to go check out Beverly's Pink Saturday Participants at

Thanks for coming by to visit this Pink Saturday. I just have a few photos today from the past week to share. The first on is some coneflowers I saw at Centennial Park. We have been really blessed with good weather over the Fourth of July weekend. Usually it is HOT and HUMID on the fourth but this year it turned out really pleasant. Since it was so nice I got out quite a bit to take pictures, a really nice way to spend the holiday.

This next one is some coneflowers I saw when I was walking to work on Monday. The coneflowers seem to be on every block, and doing really well this year. I have to admit though that I am beginning to pass them by, as I see them everywhere I go. I am glad I didn't walk past these, as I caught a little bee gathering pollen from this one.
I wish I knew what these next ones were- someone called them garden fireworks on flickr- If anyone knows what they really are-please let me know. I am really curious.

Last but not least was the one pink firework I caught on Saturday night. I walked down to the park from where I live to watch them. It was a lot of fun and I swear I'm going to get down there earlier next year to get some of the great food and enjoy the music.

Well, I hope you enjoyed the pics today as much as I enjoyed sharing them with you all. Take care of yourselves and don't forget to go see for the rest of the fun.

Welcome to the Rose Garden this 4th of July Pink Saturday. Hope your week has been kind to you and you already feel rested and revived after a good night's sleep. Just in case you don't, I've decided to share with you a few pictures that will help you to take a moment and relax. Breathe in, breathe out, breathe in, breathe out and feel yourself slowing down. Forget about the list of things to do, forget about what happened at work this week, and forget about whatever someone is demanding of you. Right now is your time- Enjoy.

The Arbor at the Gage Park Rose Garden in Topeka Kansas- a great place to breathe.

A delicate pink rose just for you.
Sister Roses

A luscious boutiful boquet- no need to share, their all yours.

Breathe in, breathe out. That lovely soft romantic fragrence that down through the centuries so many people have enjoyed.

Hope you enjoyed your moment of rest and may you enjoy your Fourth of July weekend. Take care of yourself and don't forget to stop by Beverly's at for all the restful pink fun.
