I Spy: Petal Pink (and Giveaway)

Rose petals and lemon balm in sun tea

Welcome to week four of the "I Spy" color series. It has been fun! This week wraps up round one, and I will soon announce the winners from this series. One reader and one blogger. It's not too late to enter! Leave a comment here or blog about Petal Pink yourself.

I was surprised, actually, about how much pink was in the garden, and how little pink is in my home. I guess I shouldn't have been surprised, because I've never thought of myself as a "pink" person. The pastel color palette is not what attracts me. However, I do like pink, and I have a small corner in the bedroom, my "tea cozy corner," where pink thrives.

Your sun tea brewing is absolutely gorgeous! I'm sure it tastes as good as it looks.

That sun tea does look good. I think I'll have to make some this morning! A perfect thing to do in this 90 degree heat!

I love the Sweetpea blossoms. Very pretty! :)

It's been so long since I've had sun tea! Can't wait to make some myself- since it sounds like I'll be having some this morning!

Love all your pink photos. The Spirea is such a great color. The Limoges cup and saucer is exquisite and how nice to have a "tea corner".

No pink in house but lots in my closet and garden!!

Oh, I wish I could grow sweet peas and that tea looks so refreshing.
It's late, but my Pink is up!
This had been such fun!!! Thanks for doing it, maybe we can extend it just for fun.

I don't consider myself a pink person either, but it does peek into my space occasionally as yours does. I love your Limoges cup and flowers. Pink is definitely in the garden now and so beautiful. Thanks for helping me notice there is some pink around me. The sun tea is beautiful.

You have some beautiful pinks today! And somehow I knew a live "petal" of pink would make an appearance. Lovely!

I love pink but I didn't always. BTW the first photo of the pink flower is an evening primrose and they are one of my favorite flowers.
