Sunday Stills – Pink – 06.13.21

The feature image is a photo of my good friend and fellow graphic designer, Morrigan. She donned her pink & blue wig for Halloween a few years ago.

This post is in response to TERRI WEBSTER SCHRANDT Sunday Stills challenge. The theme this week is the color Pink.

When you have 2 daughters (grown now) and 3 granddaughters, there is a lot of pink in your life. From Disney princesses to Hello Kitty and beyond, life is one big pink plastered party!


Payton’s 4th Birthday

Today is my middle granddaughter’s 10th birthday. Happy Birthday Payton! I’m not with her today and didn’t attend her party yesterday in Tampa because of my upcoming surgery. I did find some archived photos of all my grandkids decked out in pink.

Leigha’s 9th Birthday

Leigha just turned 16 so this shows how long ago these photo were taken.

Kristen – the youngest

Of course when Kristen was on her way, her baby shower was all pink because my daughter knew she was having another girl. She is now 6, soon to be 7 this year and is the smartest kid I know. She was completing full understandable sentences at 18 months.


Now to some Nature Photos

This is for Jez’s Water Water Everywhere #82.

Impressive reflection of pink skies at a pond in Jacksonville, Florida. It was getting dark as you can see the light on the light post in the background had already illuminated.

Pink Birds

We went looking for this bird who lives a life of solidarity in April of this year, but he eluded us. He is still in the area as birders have seen this bird in the mudflats along Lighthouse Road in the refuge the past few days. If you missed any of my prior posts about this bird, it is thought that this Flamingo got blown in with Cat 5 Hurricane Michael a few years ago that devastated Mexico Beach, Florida.

One of the only pink birds that we see fly in the skies here in Florida is the Roseate Spoonbill. There is no other bird that this can be. However, people have mistaken it for the American Flamingo. Honestly, the American Flamingo is uncommon to Florida except in the Everglades at certain times of year. You might get lucky to spot one in the Florida Keys. Plastic flamingo lawn ornaments are much more common.

P!nk

Alecia Moore aka P!nk is a 3 time Grammy Award winning artist who has also shelved 7 MTV Video Music Awards, 7 Billboard Music Awards, 5 World Music Awards and 1 Emmy Award. She is one of the most talented artists in recent history. She has blazed a trail for other female performers encouraging them to be themselves! I’d love to see P!nk in concert some day!

  1. Pink is a great artist, Lisa! All your pinks are so creative and with girls, I imagine there is no shortage of the color–adorable pics! I’ve seen the roseate spoonbill on Tina’s blog (Travels and Trifles). Must be nice to see those around! Glad you could link up with Sunday Stills. I saw another link for celestial but it linked to the pink challenge…

    • It was fun to go into the archives and remember how little they were. They grow up too fast. Of course I couldn’t do a pink post without the spoonbill. LOL! πŸ™‚

      • Love that spoonbill too. There aren’t too many birds that color. πŸ™‚ I remember walking in some Florida wildlife park (I forget the name right now) with my transplanted New Jersey/now Floridian friend. A friendly birder there was pointing out the roseate spoonbill to us.

      • No there are not too many birds that are pink like that. I’m so glad you got to see them when you were visiting. They really are spectacular to see in the air and on the ground. πŸ™‚

  2. Wow, I love your friend’s wig – I actually thought it was her hair at first! Great pink skies, and of course as I would expect from you, some beautiful pink birds. Your video of Pink is unavailable for viewing in the UK (must be a rights issue) but I agree she’s a great artist with an amazing voice πŸ™‚

    • LOL! That is one of her coolest wigs. She is a goth girl. I shot her wedding and her real hair was pink and purple. I should have added that photo too. Too bad you couldn’t see the pink video. I’m sure it is a rights thing. πŸ™‚
