My day is Pink Thursday!

My vintage fowler ware kitchen jug and batter bowls and others. I just love these pieces and use them almost every day. The older batter bowl was my grandmothers.
A set of Beautiful vintage rose's jugs I found in an op-shop and just had to have them. They are Alfred Meakin and very collectable. even better they are is such good condition.
Now some lovely Pinks from my very dry garden. Well this is not truly pink but the lilac tree always puts on a very nice show.
A flower from a very young apple tree of ours and I just love the idear that this beautiful flower will be a yummy apple. The colour is stunning.
This is so lovely and is a flowering cherry tree and it too always puts on a great show. We worry so much that we cannot water the garden this year there is just no spare water in many parts of Australia so we hope for rain.
Some more pink from our little garden.
The very first rose for the year and it is so tiny and delicate I decided it truly should be part of my "pink Thursday"
Well I hope this finds you all well and happy on this.................
My Thursday.

Such lovely photos of the pinks in your garden, and that set of jugs is gorgeous.

I guess you mulch your garden well? It certainly makes a difference in water retention.

Hope you stay safe from fires, too, Lee-ann.

Beautiful collection of pinks today. I know how you feel wishing that you could water and you cant. sometimes I just slip them a little water. We were told not to water here and I did it anyway. i cannot stand to see things die. Makes me so sad. Have a great Thursday. My Thursday Thirteen is up... Sandy

What a lovely pink post! I love the beautiful rose jugs! My own dish pattern is called desert rose and has beautiful pink roses on it!
Your garden looks beautiful. Hope the rain heads your way soon!

So many pretty pinks in your garden. It is truly amazing that a flower will soon be an apple! I hope you get some rain soon so that all your garden gets a good, long drink.

The jugs are beautiful!

Happy Thursday! Your garden is just splendid. I'm sorry to hear about your drought. We've had some flooding last week but it had been a while since we've seen that much rain. Today, we saw snow. YUCK not ready for that.
Stay safe and as always. Thanks for sharing. :) Patty

It is so wonderful to vicariously enjoy Spring through you while also enjoying Fall here. My two favorite seasons experienced at once. What more could anyone ask for?

Patty said...

I was very moved by the little apple flower. I eat apples every morning practically, they are one of my favorite foods, and now I will be seeing the flower behind the apple thanks to your lovely images today.

Thank you for this Lee-ann : )

I love pink!!! The vintage jugs are beautiful and such a treasure to think your grandma actually had them in her kitchen. You really created a lovely blog for the day.

Take good care,

Even though I didn't get to see Pink Thursday until Sleepy Saturday Morning, I am still delighted and perked up and feeling In the Pink just from viewing your treasures! Thanks!!!

Thank you everyone for your lovely comments, it is lovely sharing with friends from around the world and a little closer to home.

Blogging is a wonderful thing if friends gather to enjoy each others company as we all do here in blogger land.

Enjoy your day my friends.

Very very lovely pinks...in your collections and in your garden. I especially love the rose jugs.
Apple blossoms are so beautiful, aren't they, with that blush of pink on white?
Lovely photos, thank you.
I'm praying for rain for all you Aussies :) Your poor gardens and the farmers! It's not fair...we've had too much! Another whole day of it yesterday.
