The colour pink

I don't wear a lot of pink. I have one long sleeve running shirt in pink and that's about it, so I suppose I don't consider the colour much. However, this week it stood up and asked me to take notice. When I flipped through my pictures from this past week I noticed that pink was the dominate colour.

This rhododendron is in full bloom right now. I'm really enjoying it as a bright accent in an otherwise predominately green landscape.
When I saw this dessert at the post punk kitchen blog, I knew it was the dessert for me. It's raw and it's loaded with strawberries. The recipe is simple and takes little time to make (minus the cashew soaking time, and the chilling time in the fridge -- ah, I've discovered the brilliance of coconut oil!).

The strawberries turned the "cake" this beautiful pink colour that really appeals to me.

What do you think of the colour?

There is one little rhododendron at our place, planted by the previous owners. It looks like it's going to bloom. Once I was in Pennsylvania and came across a little stream in a valley filled with the most beautiful rhododendrons. It was a stunning sight.
