Pink Camellia

The builder completed the landscaping of our new home, and look what was planted: a pink camellia. Actually, three were planted. Look closely, and you can see a bloom!

I wrote him, Sally, and told him to do that --just so you'd have some PINK in your yard.... I knew you needed a Pink Saturday post.... ha ha ha

Isn't it great that you do have a PINK Camelia in your new yard????? WOW!!!

NOW--I hope there is something BLUE there also.
Hugs,
Betsy

Woo Hoo for your pink camellia Sally! We have some growing in our yard and I just love them. The foliage is pretty all year long too.

I hope you really enjoy these, Sally! They are so pretty. And I hope all is good on your side of the state! :-)

Sending you love and hugs on this Beautiful Pink Saturday. I decided to double post because of the blue car. I thought the Blue Monday folks would enjoy it! Also in case my computer situation goes awry. The internet connection was lost AGAIN last night. Not sure what it going on, but it is making me very testy. ;-)

Love to you...


XO,

The first blossom in a new phase of your life. How lovely that it was soft and pink. Have a wonderful day and enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday.

Your one little pink bloom is very pretty. Just think what you have to look forward to seeing it in full pink flowers. You will love that plant and it should do well there.

I love pink camellias. We have a dying rhododendron in our front yard that I'd love to replace with a camellia.

Hi Sally, lucky you, the contractor is also putting in landscaping! I love camelias. Mine are starting to bloom too.
I remember you saying you should be in by Thanksgiving. Is that still the movein date?

Beverly said...

Happy Pink Saturday, dear Sally. I know you must be so excited about your new home.

Our camellias are blooming. I didn't realize they would grow in Tampa. And, pink is perfect.

dana said...

What fun, Sally!! We did our landscaping (what there is of it!) ourselves. How I wished we had gone the way you have! Your camellia looks so sweet.....did you ever find out if your tree would be the HUGE kind? Hope it isn't! :)

Happy Pink Sat. and I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving! L, Dana

I love pink Camellias. We had a beautiful bush when we lived in California. Can't grow them at all in AZ. They burn up.

Hi Sally, I'm still making my Pink Saturday visits. How pretty that is. I can't believe they are putting in plants already. This went so fast, it seems for me anyway. I'm sure not for you!
Have a Happy & Blessed Thanksgiving.
