By Christina Rossetti
What is pink? a rose is pink
By a fountain's brink.
What is red? a poppy's red
In its barley bed.
What is blue? the sky is blue
Where the clouds float thro'.
What is white? a swan is white
Sailing in the light.
What is yellow? pears are yellow,
Rich and ripe and mellow.
What is green? the grass is green,
With small flowers between.
What is violet? clouds are violet
In the summer twilight.
What is orange? Why, an orange,
Just an orange!
My Pink feature today are these two milk pitchers I found at an antique store years ago. The flowers are from the grocery store and I can't remember the name of them. They are a very pretty pink.
I am photographing them on a bench in my sunroom.
I'll show a full picture of the bench at another time. It was a very lucky purchase a few years back at Michaels. I wasn't there to buy a bench but there it was marked down at a very inviting price. It's a natural color with knot holes, which doesn't look bad but I am thinking of painting it with Annie Sloan paint. Maybe Graphite.
The floral pattern is a raised design.
Thank you for stopping by and have a great weekend.
