Pink Hedges

Precious Beverly at How Sweet the Sound hosts Pink Saturday. Please Pause at her Place to see Plenty of other Pretty Pink items that Precious Pink Participating People are Presently Presenting for your Perusing Pleasure.



At the entrance to the housing development where our future home will be is a lovely pink hedge. I don't know if they stay this color all year, or if they're blooming now.




Here's the other side of the entrance. These pictures were taken from our car.




I rolled down my side window to give you a closer view.




This shows it a bit better.




This is a good close-up. Can someone tell me what is the name of this hedge? I think that it is spectacular.




P.S. Chaitra, a very observant blogger, noted that the road looks pink. Yep! it has pavers and some are pink!

See you in two days for Blue Monday!

It looks pretty and I thought that the road also had a pink tinge to it.(in the first pic). What do you think?

Good morning Sally. The entrance to your development is beautiful. I'm afraid I do not know the name of the pink hedges. It almost looks like the leaves are turning pink. Maybe it is a fall thing in Fl. :)

Have a wonderful day and you are right 470 is a bit more impressive.
Thanks. How is your mouth???

Hugs...Jeanne

Pretty pink pictures presented perfectly by a professional philosopher and personal professor. Okay, Sally, I know it's not the best, but it had the right number of "ps' please. ;-)

Coming to a Blue Monday in your neighborhood soon...

XO,

What a lovely pink hedge beneath those fabulously fluffy white clouds in your beautiful blue skies! I'm afraid I have no clue what it might be, but I'm hoping someone who drops by will be able to help you out. I'm participating in Pink Saturday for the very first time. Hope you have a wonderful weekend ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

The closer you get the pinker they get.
Got a laugh from the sidebar "Comment, please!"

L♥ve your pink goodies this week. Just when I think I have enough pink in my life I participate in Pink Saturday and see even more sweet things I’d enjoy having in my home or flowers for my gardens or just to look at☺ What could be better than the color pink dancing in your head all morning?

Thanks so much for sharing. Hoping your weekend is filled with sunshine and the comfort of those you love and who love you.

That is pretty. I've seen something like that in red but not pink. I like the pink better.

Hi Sally, I've seen those hedges before--but for the life of me, I don't know what they are called... Sorry!!!

Hope you have a great weekend. The entrance to your sub-division is very pretty. I know you are excited--even though it will be awhile.

Hugs,
Betsy

Hey Sally great pink post... I don't know too many plants but I think those are red-tip photinia which are kinda like a ligustrum hedge plant.... We had them in front of our home and they are really beautiful.... Your pictures were beautiful. Have a FUNtastic day!

I've never seen a hedge like this pink one before, Sally...it sure is a pretty thing, tho.
Happy Sat.

xinex said...

Very pretty, Sally. We have similar looking plants bordering our yard and the neighbors but ours are very tall so I am not sure if they are the same or if ours are just not trimmed. The leaves stay the same color all year round....Christine

The foliage is beautiful but alas, I have no idea what it is. Congratulations on your new home. Eight years ago, we watched our new home go up. What a wonderfully exciting time. I wish you many years of joy and happiness there.

Sally, Lovely post...the hedges are gorgeous. I just read through all of your comments hoping that someone knew what they were..I am really surprised that they did not. Now I want to know too. Looks like a wonderful place to live. Happy belated pink saturday.

What a pretty way to welcome you to your new home, Sally. I agree with Donna about the hedge being "red-tipped photinia," and I love the pink in the road.

I hope you have a wonderful week. How's the house coming?

Regina said...

Lovely pink.
Have a nice week.
