DEFINITELY PINK – Marilyn Armstrong

RDP Saturday: PINK

I don’t wear much pink or at least light pink. I do occasionally wear hot pink, though.

The flowers are often pink and here are a lot of pink plants, flowers and a few dolls.

It’s a sunshiny day, so maybe we’ll go find more pink. It’s going to be a day full of flowers. I can just feel it. It goes with the sunshine.

WILD PINK SHRUB AND ANOTHER PHOTOGRAPHER – Marilyn Armstrong

A Wild Pink Shrub by the River and the Man Who Takes Her Picture


We went down to the river in Rhode Island today. We were looking for Autumn and thought it might be hiding along the river in Lewis Bleiweis Park.

It was or at least a bit of it was there. A few trees with red and yellow leaves and a giant pink shrub. The side streams were flowing very heavily and there were whirlpools in the river.

Together, we took more than 300 pictures. I took pictures of the pink bushes and Garry took pictures of me taking pictures of the bush. And we both took pictures of the river and the trees. More to come on those.

For now, for this last night of September, it’s all about the pink shrub (no, I don’t know what it is but I’m sure someone will recognize it) and me and my camera.

ARIZONA SUNSETS – Marilyn Armstrong


I was amazed at the sunsets everywhere in Arizona. Maybe it was because it never rained, but the colors were amazing. Just when I thought they couldn’t be better, the subsequent night would be even more extraordinary.

And so it went from one night to the next night, glorious sunset after sunset. In the mountains and even from city streets. Some nights, the sunset was so red it turned the mountains red, too.

And from now to the end of the month, it will be fuchsia. I have a lot in different colors, at different stages of development … and I love them.

DOLLS IN PINK – Marilyn Armstrong

DOLLS IN PINK


Pink is such a favored color by little girls, it’s no wonder that many of the dresses for dolls were in pink — or the second favorite — purple.

Even the wall is pink! Three Toni dolls, from the early 1950s to the mid-1960s.

 

BERRIES BY THE STREAM – Marilyn Armstrong

FALL BERRIES BY THE MANCHAUG DAM


Down along the Manchaug stream we found berries. Yellow and red. Some less red but pinker. I don’t know what they are. Fall berries?

The birds and deer eat them.

I take their pictures.

Does this make these graduation berries?
