Pink Saturday, Number Two

A delicate pink flower, floating with a handful of other flowers in a birdbath, not meant for birds at all. A tropical breeze, the scent of gardenias in the air....and all around us, butterflies. Surely the stuff of fairy tales...but we were there, butterflies floating through the air all around us.  Magic.  Proof of G-d in the world.

A showy hibiscus, perched just at eye height.  One of the largest, brightest pink blossoms I've ever seen.  Perhaps it was jealous of the lovely butterflies and wanted to make sure it was noticed. 

My pink Saturday gifts to the rest of you.  I will take a look at your blogs on Sunday, after Shabbat. In the meantime, a joyful, peaceful, renewing Sabbath to all, however you observe it.
