It’s been a while since I’ve participated in a blog challenge, but Ailsa’s theme of ‘Pink’ offered to get me out of the winter blues. Going through just last year’s photo collection produced a plethora of ‘pretty in pink‘. Flowers were the obvious choice, and there are plenty of those, but everything from spectacular skies to foreign washing machines hits this gallery! Small jealousy over the BC flowers as the images were taken in October, where they were still blooming, and gardeners were doing their ‘second planting’ of frost tolerant annuals. Calgary’s growing season, if we’re lucky, runs from May to September.
