Now keep in mind that we've been walking this same route for the past eight years, and he's just now noticing that crape myrtles come in different shades of pink. I've often said that LBeau is slow to notice when I've made decorating changes, but eight years has got to be a record.
I was patient, however, and just said, "If you'll pay attention while we're walking, you'll see lots of shades of pink crape myrtles."
We have three crape myrtles in our front yard. Here's one of them.
It's a shade or two lighter than Wayne's crape myrtles across the street.
The house directly across the street boasts a pale pink crape myrtle.
And the one next door that LBeau noticed after all these years has a touch of purple in the pink.
I almost forgot that Beverly asked us for our thoughts on commenting on blogs, so I am going to append that to this post. I have the Feedjit widget on my blog, so I can see where visitors are coming from. I have noticed that I get tons of visitors that don’t leave comments. I think some people probably want to remain anonymous and others just don’t want to take the time to comment.
I try to visit everyone who comments on my blog, and whenever I visit I leave a comment because I know they mean a lot to the blogger. With time constraints in my daily schedule, this usually means I don’t get around to as many blogs as I would like, but I do the best I can. Whenever I visit blogs through one of the meme links, I try to start with the most recently linked blogs since I know that the ones linked the earliest will already have gotten lots of visitors.
I have my blog set so that comments do not require word verification, but I also have had it set so that the comments are in a separate window. I have changed that now so that the comment box is directly below the post. This might encourage more comments since visitors don’t have to click on a link to make a comment.
So on this Pink Saturday, be sure to take a good look at all the shades of PINK that color your world. And also pay a visit to Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for more pink inspiration. When you do visit a blog, try to leave a comment.
