Vicksburg, MS and Cream & Pink Colored Cymbidiums

I can't believe it is weekend again and you know what that means! Yep, it's Pink and Sightseeing Saturday!


For Pink Saturday, which is hosted by Beverly of http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/, I would like to show you my Cymbidium plant. I believe it is in the orchid family. Can you just see that lovely cream with different shades of pink flower? I found it at Sam's and I just had to have it.


Make sure you visit Beverly for more beautiful pinks.








I placed it temporarily in the foyer for now because it is supposed to be cold this weekend.
Eventually, it will end up either on the back porch or the pool deck.

Hope you like the flowers as much as I do.

And now for Sightsseing Sat., I would like to take you to one of our neighboring cities. My sis, her daughter and kids usually visit during summers. We took them to Vicksburg, which is a very historical place on one of their visits, . There is a battleground there but we still have to visit it someday.


The building below is a railroad station and behind it is the Mississippi River.

Aren't these pretty crape myrtles? I think they will qualify for Pink Sat. too.

We visited the doll house museum.
Pretty Shirley Temple dolls.
Aren't the "Little Rascals" just so cute?
There was also a playground nearby and the kids really enjoyed playing on the wet deck.
the casino


In the hotel lobby, the kids were trying to be proper like Southerners, lol.
I am a bit overwhelmed again, hosting a dinner party Friday night and then I have to pack for my coming trip to Florida. The trip also means I have to do some advance postings cause I do not want to miss coming parties like Laurie's Valentine Party and Marty's Cloche Party. So, I hope you did not mind this short trip. Thanks for coming. And thanks, Beverly for another fun pink weekend.

Your orchid is beautiful. So many blossoms. I'm afraid I'm not very good with indoor plants, so I have to rely on warm weather for outdoor gardening.

Oh my word, your orchid plant is just gorgeous. I can't believe what a green thumb you have to grow such gorgeous plants. I can kill one in a week.
You have such beautiful scenery and places nearby, I love all of your trips that you share with us. Such fun. Hugs, Marty

Christine, I've been to Vicksburg, but not to the Doll Museum. What a neat place. I'll have to go there next time I go to Vicksburg. Your photos are so pretty, and the kids look so cute trying to act proper. Love your flowers! I'm going to check our Sams to see if they have any. Thanks so much for mentioning the V'tine Party! Can't wait to see photos of the new grandbaby. Have a wonderful trip. laurie

You travel more than we do! Doesn't it sometimes feel as if you never get your suitcase put away? We are taking a break for a while...we needed some time at home.

Your flower is gorgeous. Have a great trip!
