Thanks so much Heartcat for choosing my photo as winner of the black color challenge! It was a fun photo to take!

For this month's challenge, I choose PINK! It's Spring,and Easter is almost here, so I thought a soft pastel (or even a bright shocking pink!) would be a fun change of pace.

Enter as many times as you like, and we welcome newbies too.

Winner of the previous colour challenge will state the colour for the challenge and then pick the winner. The winner will then be responsible for starting the next colour for April and choose the winner-so on and so forth!

PREVIOUS COLOURS:

April-50 shades of Yellow
May-Blue
June-Bold
July-Kaleidoscope
August- Turquoise
September - Red
October - Fall Colours
November - Gold
December- Christmas
January - Rust
February - Steel Blue
March- Black

I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

Love that pink outfit, Robert. What a little cutie!
Love those pink flowers, Trina- I'm so excited to see flowers again, it's still brown and bare in my neck of the woods!

Sad to say this is the closest to flowers and the closest to pink that I have in my garden, right now.

I'm hearing you about the lack of flowers! We don't have much around here either. I did see some daffodils today, but not even a smidge of green. Pathetic!
Maybe next week we'll see some fun pink stuff to photograph! (Hint: Easter eggs, Spring fashions, bouquets....)

Well, there's no rule that flowers have to be growing out of the ground! Here are some pink pretties I photographed on my dining room table.

The cherry blossoms are finally in bloom, this photo was taken in Branch Brook Park in Newark, NJ last evening. The most exquisite pale pinks!

Gorgeous pinks! There really isn't much pink in the northeast US is there? But this weekend I'm in California, and it's a riot of color out here. Here's a photo I took yesterday, always looking for pink! I thought it deserved its own layout:

Such pretty pink photos. I am a pastel lover so it does my heart good to see all the pretty pink on this page. And of course, the flowers are great to see .... Living where I live we have not seen much flowering yet. Beautiful! And thanks for sharing! Enjoyed seeing everyone's contributions!

What a tough choice! Such lovely pinks to choose from.... but I did choose one! And the winner is, ta da..... Pat's lovely pink flowers with the raindrops on them (posted 4/28/2014 2:49:00 PM). Just beautiful!
I also wanted to acknowledge a few others that caught my eye: Robert's little granddaughter in the pink crocheted outfit, Coolbeans (Jackie S.) photo of the pink flower also with raindrops, Meg's clever pink crocs and colorful reflection. Great photos, all! Can't wait to see what May's color choice will be!
