This post is in response to the WordPress daily one-word prompt: pink
There are certain things that come to mind when I think of the color pink.
I love almost all pink flowers. I particularly love pink hydrangeas, pink roses, pink daisies and pink azaleas. I have several hydrangea bushes but all are blue. I did have one pink hydrangea but it never grew for some reason and finally died despite my best efforts to save it. All my blue hydrangea bushes seem to thrive. We have pink lilies that belonged to my husband’s grandfather. When he passed away, my husband and father-in-law transplanted them into our yard. My husband and I are always happy to see them bloom every year. Sometimes they bloom more than once during the summer.
I’ve always wanted to visit Washington D.C. in the spring when the cherry trees are in full bloom. My oldest son visited there in college and it just happened to be peak cherry blossom time when he was there. Maybe one day, I’ll see them in person.
Aren’t pink skies lovely?
I love pink lemonade. It’s so refreshing on hot southern summer days.
I think pink flamingos are such interesting creatures. Did you know their color can be influenced by what they are fed?
Everyone recognizes these two infamous pink medicines— Pepto Bismol and Amoxicillin.
My hubby makes the best homemade strawberry ice cream every summer.
Strawberry milkshakes remind me of my dad. He loved them. When he was sick with his cancer, he developed horrible mouth ulcers as a side effect of his chemotherapy. He cried and I felt so bad for him. Even the doctor was horrified when he looked into my dad’s mouth. I remember very gently spoon-feeding my father strawberry milkshakes. It was all he could get down and the cold soothed his ulcers.
I remember as a child, my friends and I would walk to Dipper Dan ice cream parlor. Pink lemonade and pink bubble gum were favorites.
And who didn’t chew Bazooka Joe bubble gum when they were growing up?
I love pink lipstick and pink lip gloss.
And last but not least, I love my pink Women’s Devotional Bible.
