Pink Saturday


    

          I have one lone African Violet who sits among the orchids in the dining rooms' bay window.
                                     It has lovely pink coloured flowers and varigated leaves.


                                        
Even the varigated leaves have a blush of pink.
Just perfect for Pink Saturday.

Please join our lovely host, Beverly at How Sweet the Sound

I hope you have a lovely weekend.

Oh my gosh that is the most gorgeous violet I've ever seen! Even if it's not blooming it would still be gorgeous. It must love where you have it...it looks so healthy.
Have a great weekend.

I don't think I've ever seen the variegated leaves like that. Of course, every violet I've tried to grow has gone back to being the purple stock color. I wonder why?

Bernie said...

That is a stunning African Violet ... how lovely are those variegated leaves!

Think pink! Your violet is so pretty...I had one my son gave me for many years, then it suddenly succumbed. I love Pink Saturdays!

How beautiful.....and your pictures are great. I love African violets and have never had any success with them. I am a bit jealous of you. Hope you are having a good weekend. It was a long time getting here.

Hugs,

You violet knew you need something for Pink Saturday and provided it. I love violets, but they are not the easiest to keep. Your is very pretty and looks healthy.

Hello! I am so glad I found you. These pink flowers are just marvelous (No African violet I ever had looked that beautiful.)

I scrolled down a few posts and everything you do is lovely -- I really liked the picture and poem about Autumn and embracing change.

I remember when African violets were really the only living colour one had in the house during the winter months. Everyone had a windowsill full of them. They are still among the prettiest house plants.

I've never seen a variegated one either, but that is beautiful. I love violets, but I've never been able to keep them alive and blooming.
