Pink Saturday - Houses & Trees

Beverly at how sweet the sound hosts Pink Saturday. If you'd like to jump on the bandwagon, click on the pink lady to the left. Here's what I've found to share with you this week.

Living in South Florida, it's not unusual to see a pink house. Here's one not too far from where I live. Notice please: the roof is pink, the house is pink, the trim is pink, even the pavers in the driveway are pink. I think it's beautiful and a perfect color for South Florida living.







I thought I'd include a couple of pictures of our pink crape myrtle tree in our backyard. These shots were taken the end of June; the tree was spectacular this year.




Thursday I hit post number 100. Keeping with the custom of Blogland, I have a giveaway. Check it out.

Your pictures make me homesick. The house we lived in when I was a teenager was pink, but our tile roof was white.

Happy Pink Saturday.

And, go Dolphins!!!

Dawn said...

I love the colors of the house! You don't see too many pink houses around here!

Hello,
You found some nice pink. I'm going to have to keep my eye out for a pink house to photograph in the future :0)

First of all Sweet Smiling Pink One, let me congratulate you on your 100th post! Woo Hoo! Clap clap! Love the Pink house ~ it's a beauty! Now those crepe mrytles looks very beautiful. I have a couple and I don't think they like me ~ they don't bloom very much!
Now, isn't that something about the tern 'what nots'. I'm from the deep south, Alabama, as well as my family. I have done some genealogy searching and have most coming from Virginia and then to the south. I love the term any way, but Sally, I ain't no Yankee!! You know I love ya!!
Be a Pink sweetie,
Shelia

I think crepe myrtle is the best tree ever. Aren't pink houses something else?

Joy said...

Those beautiful stucco houses always make me smile. I've been to Florida just twice and both times I've had my husband drive me around some of the neighborhoods to admire the architecture and color palette.

Dawn said...

Love the pink houses....and the song by John Cougar!

Jeanne said...

Sally, I too lived in So. Fl and then Central Fl. Houses can be any color and we did have a pink house in our neighborhood. A two story
Boca style with the two story window in front. It was very much like our home. Ours would never be pink. Such is life in the sub tropics. Your trees were stunning. Think pink!

Hugs, Jeanne

bj said...

Oh, gosh...it oughta be a law that you HAD to live in at least ONE pink house in your lifetime...and I would choose THIS one!!
The pink flowers are lovely...

My neighbor use to have his house a SMURFF BLUE. It was 3 years after we moved in they painted. I would have rather had pink than blue. Heee Pinkness to you. Kathy

How fun to see a pink house like that! I have heard that there are parts of Florida that have such fun colors for their homes. It would be fun to see! Also love the crepe myrtles. They're just beautiful!

Kady

P.S. Loved the video in the previous post. I had never given any thought to the flyovers, but it is really pretty amazing how much time goes into that!

Suzie Button said...

It's a nice shade of pink, too. Doesn't go BANG in your face! It fits for Florida! Have a Happy Pink Saturday!

Hi Sally
oh beautiful pink house. I love your backyard. Where abouts is the city you live in? Do you get aligators in that nice water behind you?
Your tree is beautiful with its pink blooms...they must smell lovely too.
Thank you for sharing.
Have a nice one.

Theresa @ Take A Sentimental Journey said...

The pink house is adorable!

And to answer your question about the boat's name.....it used to be called "The Julia Belle Swain "
unless they changed it.
I think the General Jackson is in Nashville,Tn.

Patty said...

That tree is gorgeous!

Tricia said...

Smiling Sally,
YOu made me smile with that pink post! Loved the house and how's the weather in south florida?

nikkicrumpet said...

I'd love to peek in the windows of that pink house...I wonder if there are pink rooms in there.

Killlashandra said...

Maybe it has something to do with the warm weather, the pink houses I mean. We see pink down here in the southwest too oddly enough.

Thanks for reading my haiku. Although how embarrassing for me I looked at it realized my syllables are off and had to fix them.

Sleep need more sleep. :)

My inlaws live in Florida and I love to visit. Your crepe myrtles are gorgeous.

Margie said...

What a gorgeous *pink* house! We have some *pink* houses around our area, but not many, and not like that! They are usually little tiny houses, that are very sweet.

Beautiful crape myrtle too!

Congrats on your 100th post!
