Pink Alstroemeria Lilies at Heart and Home

It's Pink Saturday! Thank you Beverly, for continuing with this fun weekly tradition!

These alstroemeria have been brightening up my home for over a week now. They are such hardy, long lasting flowers. The bouquet has become more lush everyday, as more and more buds open.

I've moved them from place to place, enjoying their vivid color. They liven up any room they're in. I especially like the way they look on my new-to-me redone coffee table (seen here), and all the blue and white in this room:

They make me happy when I look at them - they are such merry flowers, aren't they?

Each blossom welcomes you with a smile!

I love picking out fresh flowers for my table each week. I shop for them at the farmers market or the grocery store, and no matter how dire the news of the economy, or the state of my own finances, I always make room in my budget for a fresh bouquet!

When I was younger I fantasized that someday I'd have a open ended account with a luxurious flower shop, one that delivered huge, extravagant displays to my elegant loft apartment in some fabulous city, or to my hill-top,
ocean-view estate! Of course I realize (now that I'm older and wiser - ha!) that fancy florist flowers wouldn't make me any happier than these pretty pink blooms, purchased for less than $5, lasting all week, and making me smile each time I see them.

I hope you'll come back on Monday for Met. Monday. I'm showing before and after pics of my kitchen remodel -you can see a couple here .

Until next time

These truly are the best flowers, for the longest time I could not remember their name or for the life of me spell it. They are always appropriate for any occasion as they come in so many beautiful colours. These are the most gorgeous color! Happy Pink Saturday!! xOxO Nerina :)

L♥ve your pink goodies this week. Just when I think I have enough pink in my life I participate in Pink Saturday and see even more sweet things I’d enjoy having in my home or flowers for my gardens or just to look at☺ What could be better than the color pink dancing in your head all morning?

Thanks so much for sharing. Hoping your weekend is filled with sunshine and the comfort of those you love and who love you.
