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 http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/ for the rest of the fun.

Hi Susan!
Beautiful pink post. I love cone flowers, they are so hardy, and seem to put up with so much neglect. They still smile and bloom for us. Just love them, so thanks for sharing. Happy PS. Country Hugs, Sherry

Look at the bees feasting on the sweets :-) I don't know the last one two but I think it's interesting - both the pink and those yellow ones with spike-like petals(?)

Happy Pink Saturday!

Happy Pink Saturday, Susan! I adore pink cone flowers! I grew them in my garden in Maryland and in Texas, but I can't seem to find them here in CA. Those other flowers are so fabulous! Post the name for us, as I don't have any idea what they are either!

Enjoy your weekend!

Great pic of the fireworks. There are some going off here tonight, not sure why, and I was going to try to photo them, but it is too cloudly. Loved yours. Happy Pink Saturday!

Happy Pink Saturday! I love your pink flower photos. Cone flowers are a favorite of mine with hydrangeas at the top of the list. Hibiscus are another favorite and I do believe your unknown flower is a hibiscus.

Mary said...

I love the pinks you've chosen to share with us today. I loved the sunrise. Your photos are really great. I hope you are having a wonderful day and enjoying this long weekend.

Susan Your pictures, especially the field, are gorgeous! The unidientified flower looks like a hibiscus but the leaves do not! Thanks for sharing these!
