Pink Saturday... Lilies in bloom

Sometimes, a Pink Saturday post just falls in your lap - or in this case blooms in your yard - and you have to share. I could hardly believe my luck this past week when my pink lily bloomed. I planted this lovely specimen a couple years ago, and this is by far the most prolific season it's had. Look at all those blooms! And there are still plenty of buds that have not opened. (Yes, that is a slightly confused mum behind it. It seems my mums bloom at all different times here in California.)

The blooms are simply stunning, aren't they? The buds started forming a couple weeks ago and as the number grew, I crossed my fingers they would open. This week, I was rewarded with their pink beauty. I feel like I've won the lily lottery.
As always, a special thanks to Beverly at How Sweet The Sound for organizing Pink Saturday. Please stop by her blog for a complete list of this week's participants.

We have a winner...
Last week, to celebrate Pink Saturday's second birthday, I had a little giveaway. The winner of those adorable pink and chocolate Vera Bradley mini-journals is... Donna Warrington. Congratulations! Your journals will be on their way soon.
Happy Pink Saturday, everyone. Have a wonderful weekend.

  8. Hi, I'm a first-time visitor, having found you through Pink Saturday.

    Your lilies are lovely. Mine aren't anywhere close to being ready to bloom.

    By the way, I love your blog name and your philosophy...indeed, beauty DOES matter. I think we all have a yearning deep within to be surrounded with things of beauty.
