Sailors' Delight

Evening Sky at Sunset

Pink sky at morning,

Sailors take warning.

Pink sky at night,

Sailors' delight!

Wishing each of you pink skies tonight.

Thanks for joining me for Pink Saturday. Last week Teresa of Gardening with Soule was a new participant. Click here to check out her blog. She shares amazing photos. Then click here for more pinkness @ Beverly's How Sweet the Sound.


The summer we married, my husband was in graduate school, and I was employed as a teacher. We took a portion of our savings that summer and purchased a sailboat. We christened our Catalina 22, “Hyacinths For The Soul” after Saadi’s poem. Our "Hyacinths" provided years of pleasure.


  1. Hi Sarah!

    what a great shot of that beautiful pink sky!!

  2. Sarah, Thanks so much for your kind words about my blog and photos. I really appreciate your warm welcome. I can't believe it but when I went to post this weeks Pink Saturday I almost chose the quote in your header before I visited you. Great minds think alike I guess. I am looking forward to reading your blog and visiting many of the others in Pink Saturday. You are all a great bunch of pink lovers that I am looking forward to getting to know. Thanks again! PS I am adding you to my blog roll if that is ok with you.

  3. It is funny that you posted this because everytime I see a pink sky...morning or night...that is the first thing that comes to mind and I always recite that verse!!
    Happy Pink Saturday xOxO Nerina

  4. What a beautiful sunset!...Christine

  5. Beautiful scene, Sarah! Funny, how I grew up, learning it as "Red sky in the morning....." LOL Must be a regional thing.
    I wish I would have thought to link my pink flower photos to Beverly's Pink Sat. meme. I don't seem to think ahead each week to let her know. Wish she did Mr. Linky instead. :( Now I'm too late. Oh well....enjoying your photos this morning.


  6. This is a beautiful and eloquent post Sarah-so calming and very very beautiful...I always feel calm and relaxed when I come to visit you!

    I loved your pretty pink tablescape too! You are so artistic.

    I just wanted to thank you also for visiting today and for your lovely comment-it really meant a lot to me.

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
    Best wishes,

  7. Here in the UK we say:

    Red sky at night
    Shepherds delight,
    Red sky at morning
    Shepherds warning....


  8. What a gorgeous photo Sarah. And that verse goes through my head whenever I see a glorious sunrise or sunset (but we say red) Have a great weekend. Kathy

  9. Hi Sarah! What a pleasure stopping in here. I have been looking for something to read and your recommendation sounds like just the book(s) I would enjoy.

    Your tablescape is striking. I love the black and white check and you always use it so well. It is beautifully presented.

    Finally, what a gorgeous sky! Happy Pink Saturday.

  10. Happy Pink Saturday!

    Lovely skies...

  12. Sarah, this is one of my favorite sayings... particularly living near the water, I'm always on the lookout for night skies that glow pink and red!

    Hope you also have a weekend that finds you "in the pink"!

    Happy Pink Saturday to you...
