Happy Pink Saturday everyone! I hope you are enjoying your weekend. We are going to relax and have some fun. It is our son Julian's last weekend before school starts. He is going into 2nd grade on Monday and we are so proud of him! He is our little artist and philosopher. . .always a book in hand and always contemplating life's big questions.

This week I took him and his sister Francesca to the Los Angeles County Arboretum to run, play and feed the ducks of course.

It is one of our favorite places to visit. There was plenty of pink with many flowers and trees in bloom. One area was awash in pink and I couldn't resist taking pictures.

This was one of many trees in bloom. So pretty. . except for the slight allergy kicking in. lol

Of course, what would a trip be without pictures of peacocks of course. Well, thanks for stopping by and I hope you are enjoying your last weeks of summer vacation. Be sure to stop by and visit our wonderful hostess Beverly of How Sweet The Sound. Wishing you a lovely weekend!

I hate to be a broken record, but it's cold and gloomy here today and it rained all day yesterday! Hoping that I can get outside a bit to check out my gardens☺ Pink Saturday is bringing a little much needed and very welcome color into my home today. Thanks so much for participating. It's always so nice to visit your blog and see what's going on.

Hope your weekend is filled with sunshine and everyone you l♥ve. I'm hoping mine will be dry☺

Hello,
Looks like a wonderful way to spend the last weekend before school starts. I enjoyed the beautiful trees, crepe myrtles, I believe, the lillies, and that gorgeous peacock. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Vicki
