My Garden Blossoms Pink and White ...

A girl who is close to my heart asked me last week to please, please, do a pink post specially for her. So here it is, dearest LuluBelle. A pink one, just for you!



Rose in Franschhoek, japanese paper lanterns from my stash, a favourite drawing from my František Tichý book;
Tapestry at Groot Constantia, sunset over Simon's Town, rose syrup;
Pink wall in Simon's Town, the loo at Le Quartier Français, hibiscus in Franschhoek.

I have been to some very inspirational loos too! Its a good time for shy photographers like me to relax and snap away!
Lovely pinkness around the place, especially that sunset!

OHH Pinkables! Delicious colour and your shots are fabulous! I am trying to talk my husband into a pink shirt with his grey suit- it would look so good but for some reason Pink got a bad rap with da min...why is that? Happy pink!I LOVE it though rarely wear it because I am the same colour, like a little piggy.

i lived once (in my student days)in a totally pink apartment - pink doors, windows, ceilings, carpet, walls - everything single things was some shade of pink! i felt nauseoues at first, but after two years, somehow got quite attached to it too.

Yay, pink! And oh my god I'm sorry I missed posting on your birthday but I hope you had a really lovely time (with cake!). That sunset shot is fantastic. Ahhh...

What a beautiful collection of pink--I love all the variety here, with flowers, to walls, to a pink sky. Lovely :)

Happy Belated B Day - and I love the composite color photo posts - and the inspiration behind them.
I have been thinking of your blog as of late, and so glad that you dropped by! The story about your dream is just to good - "half the size" made me think of Alice in Wonderland " cut off their heads!" - I love a good and vivid dream. I used to have a workmate who was totally gifted at interpreting dreams - he would enter your dreamscape as you related it to him. I miss our times of discussion, especially when I get a crop of really wild and colorful ones ...
