It must have been the rhubarb and custard I had for dinner, but when I set out on my afternoon stroll I thought I needed a challenge.
I set about searching for pink things which incidentally extended the number of steps recorded by about 3,000. Sometimes a challenge can work wonders.
Scarf on, pink of course. the challenge was on.
If I'd chosen yellow, there would have been a lot to capture. In fact I'd have stopped at every garden as daffodils spilt out everywhere but pink was a little more tricky. Blossom, camellias, bergenia and heather were there plus a few early azaleas.
I spotted a few pink boots, bikes and scarves but I think their owners would have thought it a bit odd if I had taken a photo. I headed for the shops, surely there would be something in the window.
Like a beacon in the distance, pink of course, the Pet Parlour came into view. Not just their blind but
the door too!
The shampoo bottles in the hairdressers looked great under the reflected clouds.
The moon was still visible and deserved a photo too.
Finally a pink sign advertising Active Kids. We all need to be active and if it helps to make your walks more fun, why don't you set yourself a silly challenge all to keep your exercise levels up and your hearts working well.
Have a look at this link to the British Heart Foundation's website which gives ideas to prevent heart disease, there's even a 10 minute workout you can do in your own home to help.
Go on, keep active, it just makes sense!
