Rose Colored Glasses

Company's a-coming and I get to share a few Elmira nights, food and sights. While the dry season is upon us, it's cooled to the low-70s. Smoke has funneled into the valley, leaving a haze that turns pink at sunset. Raspberries are ripe; tea-cup and Lady Bird Johnson roses have burst with blooms. The earlier whites, yellows and oranges of wildflowers are shifting to purplish-pinks.

Everywhere I look it's as if I've donned rose colored glasses. Enjoy this glimpse of pink on Elmira Pond.

  1. The glory is in not even needing rose colored glasses. Isn't it lovely to pink up your soul without a filter or man-made enhancement?

    1. It's wonderful to share this pink across the border with you!

  3. Wonderful. I always tell people "i'm not a pink sort of gal". I think I lied. I LOVE all of those pinks.

    1. Funny thing, Dawn, pink is not my color either, but I'm loving the blush at the moment!
