Square September: Pink

Becky’s September square photo challenge Day 6!  She would like us to share photos which embrace ‘pink’ –  there could be pink in the photo, the subject or photographer could be ‘tickled pink’*, or indeed looking ‘in the pink’*.  A photo that manages to do all three things is the ultimate offering.

In remembrance of my lovely mother who would have been 99 years old today, but who sadly died in 1995 aged just seventy-six. 

*in the pink’ means in perfect condition, or in good health, and ‘tickled pink’ means delighted.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. She had been very ill for several years so every day was an extra. The saddest thing was that my father couldn’t cope on his own. They had just celebrated their Golden Wedding anniversary.

  1. A beautiful remembrance of your beautiful mom. Yes, she died too young. My mom is 93 and in dementia, so her last years have not been pleasant for her. I’d say her BEST years were in her 70s, and if she could, she’d agree. So here’s to us enjoying each decade that is given to us. May we be ‘in the pink’ during each one. xo

    1. My mother-in-law has mild dementia – she is nearly 95. Doesn’t have much of a life anymore. I think you are quite right, we have to make the most of every year we have.

  2. How lovely, with the tiny hearts and flowers around the edge, but I’m sorry that she was taken so young. Not sure if this was hers or is your tribute to her, but either way, I’m sure she’d be tickled pink by your sharing it for her.
