CBBH Photo Challenge: In the Pink


Well it’s the last day of the month and I decided I’d better get my skates on and do Marianne’s ‘Pink’ Challenge.

In Italy, I wore my pink sun hat almost every day. It goes so well with gelato, don’t you agree?

Outside Starbucks, we spotted this sparkling pink Jag. I wanted to hang around to see if the driver was a woman or a man, but hubby wasn’t as curious as I was, so we’ll never know.

I wonder who is wrapped up so warmly in this pink doggy bath towel. Can you guess?

It’s none other than my sweet little granddaughter Taylor, who undoubtedly loves the colour pink.

I’ve found out over the years, that some of the nicest things come in pink packages.

In Great Grandma’s pond, there floated the most beautiful pink water-lily.

Sultry Bali nights can be a really magical pink,

but at the end of the day, there’s nothing quite like a pink Florida sunset.

The two blogs which I would like to share with and recommend to you this time, are:

Babsje Heron, who posts about her marvelous experiences with the Great Blue Herons in her neighbourhood. I love seeing her photos, and reading about her encounters with these beautiful birds.

Lynne MayhewΒ  is a writer, who travels “on and off the beaten path” with her photographer husband Ron. Her posts are both fascinating and educational, and I always look forward to the next one.

Do pop over to see them, and tell them I sent you.

  1. You look great in your pink hat. πŸ™‚ and your granddaughter is so gorgeous. Great pink series all around πŸ™‚

  2. You’ve convinced me that pink is a lovely color. It wasn’t my favorite until you showcased so many wonderful things that come in pink. The hat has to be my favorite as I wear hats all the time when I’m outdoors. Victoria’s Secret take the # 2 spot. Your adorable granddaughter is #1 in your heart. And … thanks for the Jag idea. I will have to have mine painted pink when it becomes more of a classic. ~~~~~ : – ) xo

  3. ho amato il tuo rosa…noi in Italia a Rimini abbiamo la notte rosa…eccotene un assaggiohttp://www.cesenaticoholidays.com/Images/events/cesenatico/notte-rosa-cesenatico_600x398.jpg

  4. Pink is a soft beautiful color.
    It definitely goes great with gelato πŸ˜‰
    Your granddaughter is a cutie. She’s got pinchable cheeks πŸ™‚

  5. Who’s pretty in pink then … difficult to choose AD.. or maybe I don’t have to πŸ™‚
    Such a beautiful blush pink sunset … what a view near you !

    • Thanks so much, Laurie. This photo was from one of her modelling shoots. Mary Kay is new to me, but a pink Cadillac would surely be quite a sight to see. πŸ™‚

  6. I never own anything pink. I’m pretty sure I’m not just avoiding the feminist color. You know why? ‘Cause I can eat anything pink, and I love love pink cloud amd sky, πŸ˜‰ Great start and ending.

  7. Wow , your photos are just stunning ! … Love the one of your grand daughter, she is gorgeous … And i wish that someone gave me a pink package from VictoriaΒ΄s Secret πŸ™‚ … // Maria πŸ™‚

    • Thanks, Maria. The nice thing about Victoria’s Secret, is that even if you just buy yourself a little present, the packaging is so special that it and makes you feel like it’s your birthday. πŸ™‚

  8. Just the most amazing and beautiful pink selections Sylvia. Your granddaughter is just so adorable! Thanks for sharing hon. πŸ˜€ *big hugs*

  9. LOve this post.
    I have always liked the idea of a pink car, I just can’t find a pink I would drive around in happily.

    And really – pink hats go with gelato? Pull the other one, it’s all hats that go with gelato *giggle*

  10. Pink is one of those colors that pops a smile. Taylor is a beauty and I imagine all colors look great on her. I guess the pink bag will just have to remain a secret.:) Thanks, Sylvia for the blog hop mention. What a surprise.

    • Thanks, Lynne. My pink bag was so long ago, I’ve forgotten exactly what was in it. πŸ™‚ You’re so welcome to the mention, Lynne. You and Ron both have great blogs.

  11. Well Taylor is just gorgeous and for me it would have to be that beautiful sunset coming in second I think. Pink is just such a fun and yet peaceful colour as well… depending on the shade. Amazing how it can be both.

    • Thanks so much. All my granddaughters love pink, although they’re not very peaceful at times. πŸ™‚
      btw, when I click on your avatar or your blog name, it doesn’t take me to your blog. 😦

      • I’m not sure how the Avatar should work really. I did try to set it up a few times when I first started blogging a couple of months backl. However I’m still experiencing lots of difficulties with this. I find my photo Avatar will show on some blog sites but not others. I’ve even had a couple of experiences where by Avatar has changed completely. Maybe I do need to spend some more time on this.

  12. lovely collection of pinks!! I especially like the bougainvillea and the pink water lily. and Taylor is adorable!! in any color I imagine πŸ˜‰

  13. Might have known !! Out with it Sylvia !! What’s in the Victoria’s Secret bag ?? A little red or black number I expect, but definitely NOT pink πŸ˜‰ Happy Tuesday my friend. Ralph xox πŸ˜€

  14. We have a pink (retro) Thunderbird convertible that is often parked at the hospital. Must work there, but I’ve never seen the driver. Taylor is just too adorable in pink. I’m not so sure I’d limit my appreciation to a pink FLORIDA sunset…. πŸ˜‰

      • Teehee… great diplomatic comeback. Tonight was a total wash with heavy clouds or fog getting in the way. Should have gone out earlier when there were lots of fluffy clouds and lots of rainbows I’d be willing to bet.
