pink poinsettia

is hosted by tnchick

I am not particularly fond of pink, except for pink as offered by Mother Nature. This one is a shot from my Xmas archives... Wishing tnchick 's husband a speedy recovery.
Happy 4th of July weekend to the American friends of this blog!!

  6. I don't like pink either but I am pleased with my pink photo today. Pink in nature is just fine, on me, not so much.

    Hey on a totally different note. I cannot remember, where you live.. But my best friend (who lives in London) is most likely buying a place in Collioure (which is in France, but on the Spain side)..is that anywhere near you?
