Pinks in the park...


We are lucky to be close to Bridgton. We can do basic shopping there, see a movie, go out for lunch and, then in June, there are the peonies.



The park in Bridgton is Shorey Park and it is right next to Highland Lake. This time of year there are peonies. I had thought there was a story about how the main street in Bridgton came to be populated with peonies but Google couldn't help today. This year (because I can walk), we parked the car and I strolled around an took pictures of these glorious flowers. I love the cloud-like fluffiness of the regular peonies but the single peonies are outstanding. I wouldn't presume to give these peonies names but I always thought they were called Japanese peonies.




I am joining Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for her weekly Pink Saturday! Please stop by and see the other pinks. Happy Pink Saturday!

Those are gorgeous, I love peony. I was just outside cutting mine down. Wish they bloomed longer.
Hope you are enjoying your place in Maine!

Bridgton is such a pretty town. I love walking around there. And I've been told what fun it is to go see a movie at the old-time theater so I hope to try that sometime this summer. In fact, I'll be there sometime this coming week because we're going to spend some time with my aunt and uncle. I'll think of you when we drive through. Do you know, I always imagined you living on Highland Lake...now I'm thinking that was too easy. ☺

Happy Pink Saturday Carol Sweetie...
Oh my gosh thank you so much for taking me on a stroll in the park this evening. The peonies are exquisite. Such beautiful colors and shapes. The petals appear as though they have been curled up with a curling iron. So pretty. I am sure quite fragrant as well.

A beautiful share on this gorgeous Pink Saturday evening. Thank you sweetie for taking me along. Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry
