My Saturday Pinks - Beverly's Pink Saturday - February 26, 2016


Spring has definitely arrived in San Mateo, California and the San Francisco Bay area.  These are just one variety of beautiful flowering trees that delight me these days.




I am so fond of elephants - the live variety and any kind of ornament, jewelry, and work of art depicting them.  I think I have passed that on to my precious granddaughter who will be three-years-old April 13th.  I saw this beautiful elephant throw on Amazon and got it for Harper.  However, I loved it so much, I have kept it and will have to order another for her!!!

    1. It's so nice...still a little cool in northern California but no snow unless you head to the Sierras.

  3. We received 9 inches of snow here in Michigan and schools have been closed last 3 days. Your pink flowering trees are a delight; a reminder that Spring will be arriving soon. I read your profile and discovered your love of cruising. I am looking forward to our cruise this summer from San Francisco to Vancouver. Glad we met through Pink Saturday.

    1. Do you live in the San Francisco area? I have done over 80 cruises all over the world...mostly on Royal Caribbean. Since my forced retirement in massive budget cuts to public health in 2009, I haven't cruised but, April 16, I sail for 14 days, Tampa to Barcelona. After 5 days in Barcelona, I'll fly to India for five months...can't afford to live full time in SF on my pension!

    1. How lovely to hear of an elephant sanctuary in the US. When I am in India this visit, I am hoping to visit one there.

  5. I am looking forward to spring in Texas. The past several weeks we went from winter to summer and now back to winter. The weather is not normal anymore.

  8. Elephants are big.
    Luckily the elephant in my house is small.
    I brought it back many many years ago when I visited Mysore.
