Lovely pictures, thanks for sharing them, Mary.

Looking from the clothes, those pictures are taken in Chiang Mai or in North of Thailand, right?

I'm always crazy about Thailand :)

Joy said...

A pink treat. Thankyou!

Mary said...

Selba, most of the pictures are from or outside Chiang Mai. There are a few from Cambodia.

Really nice of you to share the pictures with your readers. SEA or Asia at large is bountiful of colors, culture & languages.

Wow Mary...all such wonderful photo shares!!! I especially like the #7...the close up of those two. Such beauty.

You did one super post here for your PINKS!

Farmer Jo said...

Chiang Mai was my favorite city too! Love the pinks and all the photos! You must have taken an amazing trip. Are these all from one trip, or multiple?
Do you have any idea what the name of those long bumpy beans are? We saw them all over the market, but we never figured out a name for them.

Lynda said...

I always love your photos, Mary...thanks for sharing other parts of the world with us!

Hélène Glehen said...

Thank you to share your pinkies with us and make us dream of this beautiful part of the world. Happy Pink Saturday.

Mary said...

MLS,Bob and I took these pictures when we were in Southeast Asia at the beginning of the year.

Mary said...

Farmer Jo, the greens you asked about are unripend tamarind pods. They are plentiful in Thailand. The pictures are from one extended tour of Asia.

Susan said...

Fantastic photography. I am looking forward to investing in a better camera.

Michelle said...

Mary-awesome post. Happy PS. If I was asked who I could have dinner with, you would one of them, your pork recipe looks great. Or maybe I should say who I would like to cook for me. LOL

Lots of random pink pictures - I like it :-) Love the (ye) closed white and pink flowers, the children with their pinks, and that dancer. Thailand? Malaysia? Is my geography so bad? :-)

Happy Pink Saturday!

Elena said...

You've put together a clever post too Mary .... I don't think I would have thought of putting together a collection of photos like this. Each picture tells a story - it's fabulous.

I've enjoyed your post.
Thank you for visiting :)

ciao for now,
Elena :)

Bunny said...

Beautiful pinks, gorgeous people. Happy PS

Dru said...

What a beautiful pink post - I just love all the pictures and I'm going to give your recipe for Thai Lemon Grass pork a try - looks wonderful. Thank you so much for sharing with us. Happy Pink Saturday!

Dana and Daisy said...

exotic! pink lives everywhere!
aren't you glad?

Reading your post above with a substitute for lemongrass, I have an ornamental grass in my garden that smells like lemongrass, it is short, about 6 inches tall and is a light yellowy green color and very spiky leaves. I wonder if it is lemongrass?

I'll be back for more of your culinary delights!

p.s. the cupcakes were good, emphasis on past tense! he he!

Love, Dana and Daisy

Creations from my heart said...

Thanks for visiting on Pink Saturday. Your photos are beautiful. In response to if the paint kills the flowers...The flowering part of the astilbe is more of a grass/straw so it will dry out and turn brown. I just paint it before it totally is dried out! Blesssing...Sherry

Terri said...

Great photos. Hope you had a great Pink Saturday.

Vicki said...
