PINK Saturday

It's hard for me to believe that PINK Saturday is here! I've decided that I'm going to put in lots of pink impatients this year and some white ones. A lot of my yard is in the shade most of the day and impatients do very well and are so cheerful!

This beautiful rose is from a bush that was already in the yard when we bought the house and it's still going great!

I love this clematis but it didn't do very well last year hopefully it will do better this year.

This is a woolly lamb that I've needle felted. Poking the wool hundreds of times with a needle is a great stress reliever! I think she turned out kinda cute. I have many more things I've needle felted recently and will start putting them on here for you to see.

Since my husband Jim's illness we are home together every day and my life so different - I'm sure there are other words I could use but yes everything is different!! If I go out he goes with me, if he needs to go some where I go with him because he is not driving yet. He had a heart catheter on Tuesday and oh what a stressful day that was. His appointment was at 10:00 am and they didn't take him in until 3:15 so we didn't leave the hospital until almost 9:00. His arteries are clean, his heart is still pumping at 20% and his blood pressure is very high and the Doc wants him to have a defibrillator put in. Jim is not sure he want one put in..he want another opinion so now we wait for another appointment.

Please visit Beverly at How Sweet the Sound to visit other PINK blogs!

Warm wishes for a Happy Mother's Day,

  4. Hi Esther,

    I am an avid gardener so I am really enjoying your Pink Saturday post. My clematis did terrible last year too and my Morning Glories. I have my fingers crossed for a better looking garden this summer. It was not up to par last summer that's for sure.

    I can't wait to see more garden pictures in the weeks to come. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely garden.

  5. Such a l♥vely post for Pink Saturday. This is the one day of the week when I get to visit some of the best blogs in cyberspace and indulge my passion for pink.

    Happy Mother's Day. I wish you all the peace and joy that a day in celebration of motherhood can bring. You don't have to grow a baby in your womb to be a mother...all you have to do is to l♥ve a human being with compassion and tenderness.

  6. WOW!! Your flowers are gorgeous. I love your blog banner, so pretty.Happy Pink Saturday and wishing you a wonderful Mother's Day.

  7. Love that pink rose ... what is the name of it, please. I am a huge gardener. My clematis did terrible last year. I have a purple & a pink & a white.

    I, too, changed my hubby's life when I went into congestive heart failure in my mid-50s. My hubby retired to care for me, had to go everywhere & do everything for me. It was a terrible 3 yrs. I am fine now with special medical surgery. My life has changed so nicely for the better. It is a big change to go thru, I hope your husband gets the treatment he needs. It can truly change his life, & yours. There ae so manny wonderful treatments out there.

    Have a lovely Mother's Day. God bless, I'll say a prayer things go well. Let me know, please.

  22. Hi Esther,
    I was leaving you a comment but then it disappeared...go figure! lol!

    I loved your rose bush. The bloom is very large. Your little lamb is adorabe and I sometimes wake up in the morning looking just like that but not as cute though...lol!

    I hope Jim's second opinion is what he hopes for. My prayers go out to you both.
