Wine Country Flowers - Pink Saturday

Happy Pink Saturday. My post is linked to Pink Saturday at How Sweet The Sound.

Just about a year ago my husband and I took a vacation to the wine country in Sonoma. I'd never been to this part of the country. Being a wine and food lover, I was so excited about our trip. The trip didn't dissapoint. It was a relaxing vacation to a beautiful part of the country where we toured some great wineries and sampled some wonderful wines. I can't wait to go again!

The flower in the header on my blog is one we photographed while in Sonoma. For your Pink Saturday viewing pleasure, here are a few others.

I'd like to introduce you to Sarah of The Open Cupboard. She's my "next door" neighbor in Iowa and just one of many new Pink Saturday friends.

  4. Happy Pink Saturday Sweetie...
    Love your post. Your flowers are just exquisite. Love each and every petal that you have shared.

    Sonoma sure had some beautiful roses. How lucky you were to be able to view them first hand. I love the scents and colors of a rose. They are a painting from God all in themselves, each one especially chosen. Thank you for sharing sweet friend.

    Happy Pink Saturday. Country hugs...Sherry

    Happy Pink Saturday!

    Greetings from Munich,

  7. Happy Pink Saturday to you!
    It is a beautiful sunny Spring day
    in Upstate, New York. Your photos are beautiful and really represent Spring. I have enjoyed my visit to your
    lovely blog - please have a wonderful new week.

  8. Glorious flowers - really makes you realise spring is really here. Happy Pink Saturday!

  9. Beautiful pictures...don't you just love this time of year?

  10. I love the flower photos. THey are beautiful.

    I wanted to get back to you on Modern Baker. If you go to the website, they list the categories as well as the recipes for the first group.

    As far as I understand it, we are responsible for one recipe, we select, in each grouping and then we choose what else we bake. Not positive but, I think so.

    I have the book and never used it and now I am really happy to get to it. I need practice in pies and tarts. They do sweet and savory.

    Now, we are doing quick breads which includes muffins.

    If you want me to type a list of recipes for you, let me know and I will be glad to do it.

    No pressure for you to join - just sharing.

  11. Thanks for coming by this past Sat for Pink Saturday and for leaving a comment. I wondered where your rose header photo came from - it's beautiful ... as are the other Sonoma photos. Enjoyed my visit. Jenn
