More Pink and a Mighty Wind

Do you think I like pink, or do you think I like red, or do you think I just love all colors??  If you answered all, then you would be right, but I do seem to be drawn to lots of pinks and reds.  When I walk into a garden center it literally takes my breath away to be standing in the midst of all those beautiful colors.  I get dizzy. 

This morning I stopped at McDonald's for a tasty strawberry/banana smoothie, oh yum and oh so pink.

Saturday I bought roses and these beautiful berries at the Farmer's Market and they are still adorning our screened porch dining table, and yes, pink.

These beautiful PINK cone flowers look like they belong next to the blue birdbath (I added this to the blue collection of pots) This was my entry to Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday using her new freebie texture, isn't it lovely? 

The soft pink of the daylily with raindrops.   I linked this post to Lisa Gordon's Creative Exchange this week. 

And ofcourse, the pink hydrangeas that are in full bloom now.
This morning Toby jumped in bed and snuggled right up to my face and I knew instantly that we were in for a storm....he is my weather man when it comes to storms.  Sure enough, the winds began to blow and the rain was coming down in torrents.  It lasted about 1/2 hour and when it was over I could see that that was one mighty storm that blew through here. 

The sidewalks and streets were covered with leaves that had been torn off the trees.

At the end of the back entrance into our subdivision I found this tree just snapped right off at the base.  It makes me so sad to see trees that are growing and green just snapped in two.  So you can see by these few photos that it was a mighty wind that blew thru here this morning.  We were blessed again with no damage to our house or property.  The pretty vase of roses withstood all that wind and was still intact when the winds stopped.  Hope you were storm-free.
