Springtime in The Abandoned - Pink Saturday

The grounds surrounding The Abandoned hold many surprises, including this gorgeous rhododendron nestling next to the bark of a pine tree.

These fragile pink blooms grow outside what used to be the commons, where people would eat lunch next to the now non-existent ceiling high windows.

Outside the office area windows one can find springtime blossoms gracing the trees and reflecting back from the broken windows.

For more fabulous pink stuff, join Bev at How Sweet the Sound!

What beautiful shots - I love the way the brilliant silky pink of the rhody is set off against the rough texture of the pine.

Happy Pink Saturday!
