Dear Readers,

Life has a been a blur lately! Between final wedding preparations, house hunting and the process of making offers and buying, working, and trying to stay sane, my attention has been scattered near and far. That would be why the posting is sparse this week. The remaining days of June will be filled with much of the same activities, so I wanted to let you know that Preservation in Pink is on a mini vacation or more like a part time schedule now. Thanks for hanging in there with me.

However, come July, Preservation in Pink will be back with some awesome new guest bloggers, good summer stories and preservation thoughts, and soon – a brand new headquarters. (Well, the blog will be in the same place, but if all goes well, I’ll be blogging from another abode!)

For the time being, enjoy picture posts and let’s hope for some good end of June summer weather.



p.s. here’s one to start:

The coolest flowers I have ever seen. We came across them in Boston Common.

As preservationists, it is important for us to remember that landscape – the natural environment – contributes greatly to our built and cultural environment.  Sometimes taking time to enjoy a flower garden with historic buildings as the background is just as satisfying as gazing up at the building cornices.

More crazy flowers!

Does anyone know the name of these flowers?

    Good luck with all your wedding planning. We just started (we booked the venue yesterday) and it already seems like the craziness has begun!

      Thanks, Kayla! Good luck with planning – when is your date? It does get crazy. I’m used to the wedding being years away and suddenly it was months and then weeks and now 8 days. yikes!?

    They are allium—members of the lily family:
    Noun: A bulbous plant (genus Allium) of the lily family that includes the onion and its relatives (e.g., garlic, leek, and chives). ”

    They also grow beautifully in Thousand Island Park!

    Best wishes for the wedding..

      Ellen, thank you! I never would have figured out the flower name on my own. Someday I hope all of Ali’s friends can descend on TIP once again. So lovely!

      And thank you for the best wishes. =)
