Pink-ish

This weekend’s Weekly Prompts Challenge is a colour challenge and the colour is pinkish. Colour challenges are the ones I most like to participate in, so I dug through my archives, as pink definitely features in my collections.

One of my dearest books in the whole world, of course. Pink was Anne’s favourite colour, but she felt she couldn’t wear it because of her red hair. (Also for some reason, looking at the teapot on the cover reminds me of Mrs Potts of Beauty and the Beast, voiced by the absolute legend that was Angela Lansbury, whom we recently lost…)

Anne was also a fan of pink roses.

The only real roses are the pink ones. They are the flowers of love and faith.

Bye September

So, how to wrap up the ninth month of the year 2022?

September is the month when I started Some Photoblog, back in 2015. September marks the transition from summer to autumn. The first autumn leaves appear, that phenomenon that makes poets pick up their pens and photographers their camera. And painters their brush.

transformative

adjective

causing a marked change in someone or something

(from Google)

Queen Elizabeth saw Liz Truss becoming prime minister, said this is too much, and bowed out.

And I discovered mushrooms grow in my local park.

The blogger on the first day of the month is the same person as the blogger at the end of the month, but she has been through something… transformative. (Refer to my previous two posts.)

But she is still taking pictures with her smartphone in the park. Because that is what she does.

A Walk In June – Bonus

A simple title for a simple post. Following on from my previous entry.

I love my close-ups.

My internet was down from Saturday evening till sometime on Monday (I had to go to the office to work and when I got home it was fixed) so I couldn’t make a post on a Sunday as usual. I always work on the blog on Saturday night or Sunday and schedule posts for the week, so this just threw my whole routine out of the window (in addition to ruining my weekend). Anyway, all’s well now.

Enjoy the sunshine and happy summer solstice!
