Pink Glorious Pink

I don't know about you, but I LOVE the color pink.  Especially at this time of year when Spring flowers are pushing their way out of the winter soil and bringing such gorgeous color back into our world.  Spring bushes & trees are are also presenting their beautiful pink blooms to brighten our days. Spring has come at least a month early to our parts, catching us all off-guard.  The Garden Centers are just now thinking about opening altho I have a feeling many of us would like to start planting right now, forgetting about the fact it is still March.  I am so enjoying having the windows open, the doors ajar, letting in those spring breezes, clearing the air of winter.  Unfortunately some of my friends suffer from Spring allergies so these early Spring warm breezes are bringing plenty of sneezes (oh I couldn't resist that one).  But not me, I am lovin' it.

Kim's Beyond Textures Class is having Color Week with a different color far the colors have been Monday green, Tuesday yellow and today, Wednesday pink.  I have posted both green and yellow on Flickr, but today I am featuring pink here....

Also, please visit my collaborative blog Focusing On Life today where I am musing on "photography style".

These are from my neighbor's yard, they peek thru the fence so I get to enjoy them too...

A trip to Trader Joe's produced more tulips today.....

The Magnolia's are spectacular this year....

Another Magnolia....LOVE this, may have it made into a Canvas Print.

And the sweetness of the Red Bud trees...

And ofcourse, what would a series on pink be without my quince blossoms....

Yogi Berra....most of you are too young to remember him, but his quotes were hilarious. Yogi was a terrific ball player and manager of the New York Yankees and the New York Mets and was quite the character.  When I saw this image that resembled a fork in the road, I immediately thought of this quote.    

I think Yogi said it best "It"s not over til it's over."

Until next time.....
