a glow of pink

From our bedroom you can look through two rooms and see our back door. 
Yesterday I noticed a pink glow on our bedroom door and it took me a minute to realize 
it was reflected all the way from the open back door. You can see it here on the laundry room door.
We've been away for almost two weeks and when we arrived home we were amazed at 
how our knock out roses had flourished. With the cooler temperatures and the rain 
we've been having, they are in their full glory. Eldest son had picked me a bouquet and 
had it on the table for our arrival home on Mother's Day.
We enjoyed a little visitor here all day yesterday ... and had fun 
with his shadow as he got ready to go home!
I hope to visit you all soon as I catch up from being away.
Meanwhile I've extended and angled our table to fit 14 tonight--
the last meeting of our mentoring group. Thankfully I'm not doing all the cooking, 
but I do need to go pick some roses for the table!


  1. Your roses are....well....a knockout!! They will be so lovely on that beautiful blue and white table. I can see that I'd feel quite at home at your table!

  2. Ahhhh yes, fresh picked roses will add the perfect atmosphere to your table for your gathering!...:)JP

  3. YEAH - I got a sneak peek...beautiful table!

  4. The roses are awesome Dotsie! With that many blooming at once, you could certainly pick a few bouquets.
    The table looks nice for your dinner.

  5. Wow, those roses are stunning!

  6. Beautiful roses, Dotsie! Knockout Roses can always be depended upon to make a really pretty show, but it looks like they've outdone themselves this year. The weather this spring has been GREAT for our flowers and grass. I told my husband last night that I feel like we're having an English spring here this year -- cool, lots of rain, and gorgeous gardens everywhere.

    I love the picture of your grandson's shadow. :) Have a wonderful week.


  7. Wow, those roses are so beautiful! What a gorgeous colour and look how loaded they are! Little ones and their shadows are adorable. Enjoy your dinner tonight. Hugs, Pam

  8. My daughter & I had traveled to Arizona last May for two weeks. When we arrived home from the dessert... Upstate New York looked like a jungle to us! Amazing how 2 weeks can transform a garden~
    Your roses are beautiful!

  9. Beautiful!

    I am going to have to get some of these roses!


  10. I have those roses also. They really are amazing. Your table setting is so very pretty.
    I so enjoyed your post today. Smiles, Dottie

  11. Those bushes are loaded with flowers, I never get so many, they are lovely.

  12. Those Knockouts are living up to their name!! And, your table looks so beautiful for your mentoring group... but, my FAVORITE is that sweet little man with his backback! What a wonderful photo. =D Hope you are enjoying a wonderful evening with your friends. blessings ~ tanna

  15. That glow of pink is amazing! I took a short walk yesterday and so many lovely spring flowers showing their faces! Happy days your way~

  16. Love that first shot with the pink glow. Stunning! And of course, the little visitor photo. :-)

  17. Ooooh, I love your roses! SO beautiful!

  18. Beautiful roses... How excited you would've been the moment you found the reason behind the glow.. Nice to join you, with your beautiful post after along time.


I enjoy the conversations that come with comments!
