Pink Saturday

Good News..and bad News..
First.. the BAD..
I'm really sad..
Had planned to do a post with some of my latest new roses..
Seeing the dewdrops glistening in the cool morning sunlight sent me scrambling for my camera..
Scurrying back outdoors, focusing on the newly opened blooms,..
click..nothing happened..
click again.. still nothing..
hurried back indoors for another freshly charged battery..
(these are NOT AA batteries..
but EXPEN$IVE Nikon Lithium batteries..)
click.. still nothing..
sadly..Nikon is being sent in for check-up, repair/servicing..
please keep my trusty companion in your prayers..
I know he is not that old..
but he has been in constant use since arriving in my eager little hands several years back..
fortunately, little Kodak is still operating just fine...
Good news is this...
I do have a few earlier photos of pretty pink posies that can be shared and enjoyed.
Believe it or not, these are Not Peonies..
but are... Tulips!!!
they were just so soft and delicate..
and the photos came out looking more like paintings..
I love them all!
My roses will be saved  for another post...

Please Join Beverly at How Sweet the Sound

  1. Sorry to hear about your camera dilemma, Loui. I know how that goes.

    The imgages are gorgeous!

  2. Oh, I'm sorry about your camera and hope it returns well and happy soon! I also use a Nikon and I know how expensive those batteries are. They do last for a long time though. I usually keep three around and now I'm down to one. Yesterday my daughter ask what I want for my birthday and I said a new battery for my camera. She laughed, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

    Those are the most gorgeous tulips I've ever seen! I've never seen ones like those. With our heat we can't grow tulips here, so I'll enjoy yours.

    Beachy Hugs

  3. Those flowers are GORGEOUS! They look like the sun is shinning up thru the center of them!

  4. Oh My Goodness! I've never seen this kind of tulip. They are absolutely stunning. I'm so glad you linked these beauties to Favorite Things Sat. (I hope your camera is fixable, and soon. I know I'd probably have a breakdown if my camera quit working!) Thank you for linking up. Have a great weekend. laurie

  5. That's not good about your camera. I hear you, and hope that it comes back soon. We are lost without our camera's, and our computers.

    I need to send my Canon off to repair land, but they say it will take's summer, and I need my camera. So I chug along, babying it.

    Your tulips are gorgeous, so pretty, and so pink.


  6. No tulips here either, so seeing yours is a treat... so pretty when wide open.

  7. Gorgeous!

    Sorry about your camera. I would feel lost without mine. Hope the repair is quick and inexpensive.


  8. I love Tulips! And these are exceptional!
    ya done good!

  9. The tulips are beautiful! Sorry about your camera troubles. Hope it all ends well.

  10. Hi Loui! Wow are they gorgeous flowers!! Hard to tell they are tulips. Like you said, so delicate.

    To Mr. Camera: Get well soon. You're lady needs you!

    Hugs and Blessings, Cassie


welcome to my world of salty sunkissed breezes..
where time is not measured..
linger leisurely..
sift sugary white sand between your toes..
Make and take those wonderful memories..
leaving behind..only your footprints...
