  1. Thank you, Kay, for another set of very beautiful pictures!
    I am indeed enjoying this time of the year; at the moment, we have the sunshine and temperatures of summer but still the flowers and birdsong of spring, simply lovely.

    1. Dear Meike,
      Hope you like the pink! I think I shall do a yellow post for my next color, isn't that your favorite?
      Lovely sound of it, sunshine and temps of summer but flowers and birdsong of spring!

  2. I love those pink grasses. We have some around various places in town and they are my favorites.

    1. Dear Chris,
      We have never seen those pink grasses anywhere else but here at this memorial. Maybe someone saw them in California and liked them too!

    1. And guess what? That photo was taken just outside our front door, it is one of the many sunrises that makes Richard run for the camera!
      I had my father-in-law in England read your post about Gwyneth Paltrow, and he really chuckled. Just had to tell you that!

    1. Why, thank you! My husband takes most of them. It's my job to stand around and look gorgeous.

  5. Oh, lovely pink pictures. What a lovely variety. I specially love that pink shrub. I think I have seen it here in greenhouses but I don't know what it is called. Could it be a kind of hibiscus?

    1. Hmmm...could be, not sure. I took that photo at the nursery at the monastery back in March, and I don't know what it is, I just liked it!

    1. Hey Jane!
      Thank you! I think the color of yellow will be the next one in the Georgia Girl spotlight. We have lots of yellow flowers!

  10. Hello there,
    you're usually in blue flowers, not pink! You really should sell your pics as postcards or greeting cards they are so lovely!!

    1. Dear Dorothy,
      It's true, I do love my blue flowers! Almost all of these photos are by Richard, and I think that they are very good too! I will make sure he sees your comment!

  12. Oooo, doesn't that look pretty!! We've had some beautiful skies here when the storm was coming through, but today it's back to sunny, very hot and very humid... Hope you are doing well!! Love, Silke

    1. Dear Silke,
      We Georgia girls know how hot it can get in Georgia, right?
      Oh yes, I am doing very well. Will have lots of posts soon and will tell you all about what I have been up to! :-)

  13. Ha~ we're actually staying indoors. This is my least favorite time of year....in Charlotte. The 90 degree days are so unbearable for me. I still haven't quite figured out why I wasn't born in the Arctic. Still, lovely photos....the pink is so pretty!

    1. Dear Audrey,
      You should be married to an Englishman! Even though Richard has lived here for almost 29 years now, he still does not like the hot summers! And I have lived here all my life and I DON'T like it hot. Sometimes we get up at the crack of dawn to walk, just to beat the heat!
      And I know I showed the pink lighted lake before, but I could not resist this pinky post! :-)

    2. Agreed. But I did marry a guy from Switzerland....and I suppose that's close enough. Hee hee... (smile)

  15. Beautiful and lovely to look at pictures. The first and last pictures were simply stunning. The sunrises (so I am told) are beautiful on the Isle of Lewis but the sunsets from the west window in my house are wonderful. At the moment we are in almost constant daylight. At this time of the year it is light at 3.30am and it is still daylight at 11pm and you can still read a book outside at midnight. Plays havoc with the birds time clock!

    Enjoy your day. Pat

    1. Dear Pat,
      Wow, that just shows how far north you are.
      Can read a book outside at midnight, that is amazing.
      I love the British birds!

  17. Gorgeous photos! Your sky is beautiful. Here we have so many pine trees that I can never take a clear picture of the sky – so I enjoy yours.

    1. I know what you mean about the pine trees, we have the same. Best to get a shot of the sunrises or sunsets from a high spot, like Stone Mountain, Arabia Mountain... or the top of a very high driveway like ours! ;-)
