Another week and another Pink Saturday!

I was away last Saturday and had my Pink Saturday post done in advance and scheduled to appear automatically on April 11th. Then for some reason I was unable to reply to Beverly's weekly E-mail from my son's computer. When I'd try the E-mail would bounce back. I couldn't even contact her through the E-mail link on her blog. I have a feeling it had something to do with being signed on to AOL from their home screen and my son's Windows Vista. I never have trouble from here. So, my Pink Saturday post was up, but wasn't on the list. If you'd like to see last week's post just scroll down below this one.

For this week I thought I'd show you my pink piggy bank. It sits on a shelf in the kitchen...

And then I thought I'd show you some pink in my backyard...

And some pink that I saw along the side of the road on my ride home from Austin last week...

You have to look closely, but there are a few pink wild flowers in there.

For information on Pink Saturday and a list of this week's participants head over to Beverly's blog by clicking on the Pink Saturday logo on my sidebar. Thanks Beverly!


  1. Beautiful pinks for today and a really great bank! Your yard is absolutely lovely. Gosh, I've never seen bronzed baby shoes...ever! And, yes, it is so sad that they weren't kept. I don't know why the things of the past aren't valued by some of today's family members...sigh.

  2. Lovely pinks, Betty! I love the piggy bank...and the flowers...


  3. Hi, Betty, I love your piggy bank and that's just as it should be :-). Love your Pink Posts.

  4. Betty...Love your pink pigs. You must spend time in your yard, it looks great.

    Happy Pink Saturday

  5. Those pink flowers are wonderful, I especially like the wild ones! Thank you for visiting me, Pink has always been my favorite color.

  6. Betty, that piggy bank is perfect! Does your hubby notice the difference in sizes? Tee...hee...I love the flowers too. My allergies are absolutely crazy this year, as everything is blooming all at one time, but I'm still enjoying all the wonderful blooms! Happy pinky day!

  7. Love your piggy bank! I also right off noticed your Round Top pictures and Pinkies, I go to the Round Top Antiques show for the October shows now for the past three years, and loved Pinkies too! It looks like you had fun! Happy Pink Saturday! Suzie

  8. Cute piggy bank - I love those wildflowers! Happy Pink Saturday!

    Love the bank (if you've read my post you know why..!)

    Thanks for sharing! Happy Pink Saturday! X Es X

  11. Thank you for stopping by for my first Pink Saturday. I loved your piggy bank. We are redoing our bedroom and I just put my clothes back in the closet and the space left for hubby's clothes resembles the two piggy system. I also loved the pink girly RV, that is so cute.

    Happy Pink Saturday.

  14. I love the piggy banks! Thanks for stopping by!

  15. I enjoyed both of your Pink Saturday posts (last week and this week). That was quite the cute little trailer.

    Thanks for dropping by and leaving your kind comments. Hoping that you are surviving the raindrops!

    Blessings to you from Kansas,

  16. oh, those wildflowers are a delight!

  17. I love baskets of pink blooms....and delight in discovering sweet pink blooms growing along the roadside. Your pictures captured both beautifully. I need a piggy bank like yours.

    Best Wishes,

  18. the piggy bank is tooo funny!

  19. The pink piggy bank is adorable and how can anyone not like pink flowers.
    Have a wonderful Pink Saturday!

  20. Hi Betty, I just had to come in again and let you know your post cracked me up. Until they are on to us and we get kicked out, I will be here to meet you on Saturdays. Char

  21. Yes, my parents live in Georgetown (Sun City) and they got a bunch of rain too. You needed it though, right? Well, maybe not that much all at one time.

    Happy Pink Saturday!

  22. Love the piggys. And the wildflowers are lovely. We don't see that down here in in Fla. too much on the roadside.

    Happy PS


  23. Pink is the best color for flowers in the springtime! Thank you for sharing your photographs. ~Arleen

  24. I love your wild flower photo. I always think nature snaps in blogs give a wonderful sense of where someone lives. Thankyou for sharing and have a great day.

  25. Betty, what a lovely yard you have. I'd be out there every day and night. I live in San Antonio and I wish we had sightings of more wildflowers here. I wanted to find a road that had bluebonnets as far as the eye could see but alas, either we were driving to fast to notice the scenery or we didn't go down a road that had fields of bluebonnets...I'm so disappointed!

    I'm so glad that you had those photos on your current post.
