Square September: Pink

Becky’s September square photo challenge Day 19!  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.

Frida Kahlo Scarecrow in Trengwainton Gardens

Frida Kahlo was an artist born on 6 July 1907 in Mexico. She had planned to follow a medical career, but a near-death bus accident when she was 18 years old left her with life-long pain and disabilities. During her recovery she returned to a childhood love of painting and went on to become a world-renowned artist inspired by her country’s culture, nature and ancient artefacts.

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. oh!!! Not sure what to say now . . . . think it might be, just slightly worried about her cheeks! Fabulous picture though 🙂

    1. Haven’t seen them yet. It has been one of those days. Busted tap and couldn’t find the stop cock, plus bad stuff going on with MiLs carers. Sigh…
