Square September: Pink

Becky’s September square photo challenge Day 11!  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.

Malala Yousafzai Scarecrow in Trengwainton Gardens

Malala Yousafzai was born on 12 July 1997 in Pakistan. Aged 15 she was shot in the head by the Taliban in an attempt to silence her championing of girls’ education. She survived and continues to be an activist for female education. In 2014 Malala became the youngest person ever to receive the Nobel Peace Prize.

The scarecrow exhibition in the walled kitchen garden at Trengwainton is an eagerly awaited annual event, and this year’s theme of Inspirational Women commemorates 100 years since some women received the right to vote.

*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. I didn’t think I’d get any pink around here other than flowers so it was great to find a couple of the scarecrows fitted the bill. I think you’ll like the other one even more!

    1. They hold the exhibition each year and the scarecrows are always a delight to see. I usually get there when they are rather more dishevelled by the elements so it was good to find them looking so good.

  1. This is fabulous. Malala has appeared in our Extraordinary Women exhibition. One of the children drew her for our “Who is your Heroine’ competition. We should have got them to make scarecrows!

    1. She is a wonderful representative for girls’ education. Such a beautiful speaker. I can see why youngsters would see her as a heroine.
