It's Saturday and time for a new pink post for Beverly's Pink Saturday challenge. For all of you who love anything pink, go and check out all the great links she'll put on her blog today!
My pink picture today is of the Bouganvilla at our front gate here in Spain. My grandparents bought the house in 1970 and I have spent all my happy holidays here since I was 2 years old. For me this is Paradise on earth, not only because it is beautiful, but because of all the happy memories from this place.
I remember watching my mom plant this Bounganvilla one of the first summers we spent here. It was just a tiny little plant, but my mom told me that it would grow big in a few years. She had a picture in her mind of how beautiful it would look against that white wall. Well, it certainly does! My mom is no longer here, but this Bounganvilla is and with it the memories of her.
So in honor of my mom who passed away June of 1996:
You were right...This Bounganvilla takes my breath away!
You loved pink and so do I.
This picture is for you!
