Continuing the theme of pink around the Mediterranean here are other pink things which caught my eye

This stunning plant was outside a very expensive restaurant in Florence. What is it?

Thanks to Char from someplace in thyme it is a BROMELIAD.


On the other side of the entrance was this beauty – a type of gladioli I think.


One of the many paintings decorating the ship.( Plus someone’s shoulder!!).


Some very pretty girlie dresses with wonderful smocking in a shop in Florence.


Close up on the smocking


A perfect Hibiscus, one of many in a pretty park in Sardinia


And last, but not least, an hibiscus which I have never seen before – superb


Just a small selection of PRETTY PINK spotted on our cruise.

Have a great Pink Saturday and click on Beverley's pink button to visit others.


  1. My Dad has beautiful Habiscus' also I am always amazed how pretty they are and how big. Happy Pink Saturday! Looks like a wonderful cruise. Grace

  2. Wow! Those are some amazing pics. Thanks for sharing!


  3. Enjoyed seeing all the pics from the cruise Jean, looks like you had a great time. Love that pic of you and Mike at the farewell dinner - don't forget you are passing that jacket along to me when fed up with it, lol!!

    Thanks for the b'day card which actually I haven't rec'd! Was it an e-card or did you mail it (know the P.O. is on strike over there)? Anyway, your thoughts and good wishes are appreciated - just wish the years would reverse, we are getting old!!!!

    Been busy traveling the past couple of weekends. Keeping Jasmin this one - it's wet and warm, leaves falling fast now, 'Trick or Treat' will be messy for the little goblins and witches tonight. J is not going this year - doesn't want candy! Dropping her at a party instead - have to check that it will be chaperoned first! Yes, those days have arrived - you worry when they are are of sight with other teens!!!

    Love to all.

  4. The flowers are lovely. I love dresses with smocking - nothing sweeter. Happy Pink Saturday!

  5. Everything is just gorgeous. I love the smocking on the little dress. Happy Pink Saturday and have a wonderful weekend.

  6. Oh what a great time you are having. Look at all the blooms and the smocked dress is so cute too. The first plant is a bromielaid. I am not sure of the spelling and I am sorry about that. It is in bloom and is a tropical rainforest plant. The hibiscus are gorgeous and I too love the white with the red center. Enjoy yourself and have a Happy Pink Saturday and Happy Halloween, Char
