Pink Saturday



Welcome to Pink Saturday! Please visit our host Beverly.
On her blog you will find the complete list of participants. This is a picture of my hubby's first dahlia blooms of the season. That makes it special, but it is special also because it is one of his seedlings that he originated and therefore has not been named. It has to bloom again for several years and go thru a rigorous process to be official and named. Wasn't it nice of him to make it a pink one?! Happy Pink Saturday!

Your hubs dahlia is so beautiful! I love the layered shades of pretty pinks! Good luck and hope you and hubs are successful in getting it officially named. BTW, has your Hubs decided on a name yet?
