Everywhere I went this weekend I saw pink !
Bougainvillea 'Double Imperial Delight'
We have a beautiful new Camellia garden going in at the Bamboo farm they are just now adding plants so not everything was labeled . I bet next year this garden will be a sight to see..

Pink, Pink, and More Pink ... The color Pink and the month of October mean it's Breast Cancer Awareness time this month is almost over so here's a little reminder ... All you ladies out there and you know who you are .... if you have not had a mammogram this year what are you waiting on ? Make the appointment .. if you can't afford it there are many wonderful organizations that will help you ... Search your town till you find one .
If you want to be moved to tears with a huge smile on your face then you should have been with me Friday morning. I had heard that a run for Breast Cancer Awareness would be taking place but I had know idea where or what time but thought to myself I would love to see it ...
It was part of the Paint the town PINK campaign . Well lucky me .. I heard them before I saw them. I could not get parked fast enough. I grabbed my camera and went running to the street only to be so moved I didn't get many pictures, for I was too busy clapping, cheering and wiping tears.
Almost 400 soldiers from the 260th Quartermasters Battalion teamed up with St. Joseph's/Candler Hospital to raise awareness of Breast Cancer.
