After our Madison version of the international Women's March on Saturday, I met up with my husband who'd been photographing while I was marching. Given the size of the crowd, my friends and I never managed to march; mostly we were standing still or strolling. I think Mark moved around a lot more taking pictures. We were both tired and ready to crash by the time the afternoon was winding down. We stopped at the market to get something for dinner as our cupboard was bare.
While Mark grabbed some beer (this is Wisconsin!), I grabbed this bright pink primrose. I couldn't resist adding such upbeat color to the house. And primroses always say "Spring" to me; a word I need to hear in January.
But mostly I couldn't resist this floral reminded of a historic day. I usually take off that metallic paper they wrap around the container and set it inside a nice cachepot of my own. But this time the paper was pink, so on it stays. Trying to maintain a positive spirit after an amazing event.
I didn't grow them, but I am offering these primroses as my contribution to In a Vase on Monday with Cathy at Rambling in the Garden. Stop back here tomorrow to see a few more pink pictures!
