Pink Saturday Sidewalk Flowers

This is only my second Pink Saturday post and I sure look forward to them. Thanks again, Beverly for hosting this event. Be sure to visit her and all the PINK Posts at

On our trip to Portland, Oregon, we stayed with my sister in her Pearl District Apartment. I am a city girl and love being able to step out into the action. Portland has amazing flowers that grow so tall and lush due to all the rain they get. The markets even offer a better selection of cut flowers than I have found in our area of Colorado. Peonies are about my favorite flower ever. I even planted a couple of peony plants in our yard but they just haven't done well, and I'm sure it's just me and my yard as I've seen them in other blessed yards.

This is the flower market a block from the apartment.
Gorgeous Pink Blooms. I would have them in my home all the time!

Gorgeous flowers! I love peonies. By the way, peonies sometimes take a few years to establish themselves, so don't give up on yours! Happy Pink Saturday!

Beautiful flowers! I lived near Portland years ago. The flowers were simply stunning.

We use to go to a place near the falls called Tads. I wonder if it's still there. They had fabulous food and a beautiful setting.

The Peonies are so beautiful!

Thanks for sharing!

Happy 2nd Pink Saturday!
It is my 2nd too. I loved the flowers, they are breath taking. Peonies have always been a favorite of mine, however I have not succeeded in growing them here in Phoenix. Please stop by Country Wings in Phoenix, and say "Hi". Thanks for sharing. "Country Hugs", Sherry

I would love being near the flower mart. Those peonies are absolutely exquisite.

I always try to have fresh flowers in our home.

Hi Cindy, It's nice to hear you got to vacation, and spend some time with your sister. I always love shopping outdoors, at markets, and fairs, all the vendors and booths! Living in the "Great Northeast" we really do appreciate and enjoy that kind of thing!! Happy Pink Saturday, and hope you have a wonderful week!
