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.
