Pink Topiaries

Last week I was away in Ogunquit, Maine for my family's annual group vacation. One of the things I love about Ogunquit is the variety of old homes from colonial days through the Victorian era. Most of these former homes are now shops or offices, and some are bed and breakfasts. Wherever you look in Ogunquit, the curb appeal is amazing. The care put into the gardens and planters is evident everywhere.This particular house is a shop on the first floor and 2 large rental units in the back and upstairs. They have some of the most extensive decorative florals each year.
Aren't the topiaries absolutely gorgeous?!

Oh Elizabeth this house is absolutely devine. I love the pinks in the old barrels. Are they petunias? They are just beautiful displayed as such, and that house is a beaut. What a wonderful Pink Saturday post. Thanks for sharing. Please stop by and say hi. I would love to have you visit. Country Hugs, Sherry

I agree, Ogunquit, Maine is one of the prettiest places. What beautiful flowers, I did something like that with bucket only since mine are the same size, they are arranged tipsy on one another. New England people.....very creative hardness, I tell ya!

Hi Elizabeth! I have had a love affair with Maine for the last 10 years. I've spent a number of camping trips near Acadia and I adore Bass Harbor. Your images for Pink Saturday are wonderful! The topiary is one of the more imaginative and beautiful ones I've seen. Your post made me long to be in Maine again! Hope you had a wonderful family reunion. Happy Pink Saturday!

Had the Grands for a few days so I am a day late and a dollar short for Pink Saturday! We just had so much fun and time got away from me☺

But, I didn't want to miss all the pinkness that brings sunshine to my weekend. And, another cool, sun-less day. My gardens look horrible this year. Nothing is growing...sigh.

So, your sweet blog post is cheering me up! Thanks so much for giving me something pretty to look at other than the dark clouds outside my kitchen window.

I hope you had a great vacation. It's nice to be back home in your own bed though isn't it?!

Fantastic and a great idea! I don't know where people come up with their brilliant ideas...I just plant a basic garden and think its good, and then I see this fabulousness and, well, I need some fabulousness too! Great pink post.
♥, Susan

Wow! The house is gorgeous and the planters are fantastic. Who would have thought they were made from barrels. Have a wonderful pink week!
