Pink Saturday with Beverly @ How Sweet The Sound

The weekend is almost here and so for Beverly's Pink Saturday party @ How Sweet The Sound I created this pinkalicious mosaic using photographs taken in our own garden and at the Ch√Ęteau des Ravalet Flower show which we enjoyed visiting in May 2010.
The bad weather has kept me indoors almost all week.
There have been some dashes out into the garden, between the rain showers, to do bits of weeding and other tidying but mostly we've been housebound.
So, to while away the time, one of the things that I've been doing is sorting through the zillions of photographs stored on my PC
This is always a treat as I often forget just what's in there!

There are isolated T storms forecast for the weekend ahead so I'm glad that I have two new paper back books to read.
Mermaids in The Basement by Michael Lee West and Water For Elephants by Sara Gruen, they should keep me quiet!
If you are looking for a good read click here or on the sidebar link to go to my other blog just books.
There you'll find recommendations from myself and other book loving bloggers, I should think that between us there'll be something to suit all tastes.


  1. HI Maggie. That is a beautiful pink mosaic. The weather here has been bad as well and like you I am going through my photo's.I have so many new ones from our trip . I love going through them again and see all the places we visited.Happy pink Saturday.
    PS I put you on my Give-away list with three numbers.

  2. Thank you, Maggie - I love a good recommendation.
    Right now I'm reading The Postmistress. Have you read it?
    Your collection of pink is heavenly.

  3. Maggie, I'm envious that you are having rain, but also envious that your've had time to organize your photo files. I so need to get that done! Enjoy your time curled up with those good books. I've read both of them. The pinks are delicious! ~ Sarah

    I have Water For Elephants but haven't read it yet. Let me know what you think of it. I am finishing up a drugstore paperback and really enjoying it. I have to quit blogging now as the end is calling to me!
