(Raindrops on pink petunias. 2007)
More pink here, if you please. ~ Franz Liszt
I hadn’t intended to make pink the next color in the color series, but I was reminded via email that the Race for the Cure in Cleveland is coming up soon. It usually takes place in October, but they moved it to mid-September this year. I suspect that’s because it’s been cold, rainy and/or snowy, and windy on race day over the past few years. There’s a better chance for good weather (no snow) in mid-September.
M and I usually participate in the 5k Race for the Cure. We won’t be doing it this year because we’ll be heading back east that weekend to pick up the rest of our stuff (finish the move home), and have one more visit with family and friends before we get completely settled back into the routines of life, work, and home.
In addition to the Race for the Cure, the color pink reminds me of spring, little girls, cotton candy, bubble gum and the London Financial Times (the pages are a stand-out shade of pink (salmon) that I found odd when I first saw the Financial Times while riding the Tube because I never would have associated pink with financial news).
