Pink IS Spring's Signature Color

My children and I are visiting family in North Carolina. We've noticed pink nearly everywhere we've gone.

We thought you'd enjoy our tour of the "PINK" Spring we've found in the South. First, there are gorgeous pink Dogwood Tree's in bloom everywhere.

And those lovely dogwood trees frame the houses so beautifully.

Next, pack your bags for a trip to "The Biltmore Estate" in Asheville, North Carolina. It's time for the Spring Flower Festival. We discovered that if you want photos of the gorgeous pink tulips, with no people milling about, arrive at dusk.

As you stroll peacefully through the gardens of the largest private home on the East Coast, and you see all of the beautiful tulips, you'll be tickled pink.

And there is nothing nearly as pretty as the tulips there.

Thank you for stopping by, and we hope you've enjoyed our Spring Break tour.

  10. ♥A lovely and purr-fect Pink Saturday blog post. During this most holy time of the year I am wishing you rainbows, gracious days, dewdrop nights and the love of friends and family to comfort you and hold you close.♥

    As an aside, if you change your blogger selection to "minima your template will fit perfectly without all of the "side noise". :)
