This very pink bouquet of stargazer lilies and carnations came home to grace the grey cottage this week and it was so profoundly anti-winter that I began to see other bits of pink that we live with ...
like the pink violets that are at the center of the kitchen table...
and the pink-laden graphics of the Valentine's Day-themed catalogues that arrive daily in the mailbox
the tulips within the hallway wallpaper border
a favorite hymn that came to sit on the piano after church one Sunday
a kitschy kitty kitchen tile that reminds me of one of our long gone cats, Molly the Bandit Cat
the reflection of the Oriental rug in the television screen
and finally the floral pinks in the standing card table that my mother gave me years ago.
It seems that February is a good time to think about the pinks that are so absent in the outdoor world. Right now, it's all greys and browns around our house. Dwelling on warmer colors is a cheerful diversion. Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!
