I love pink, any shade: pastel, fuchsia, dusty rose, cerise, bubble gum, coral pink, salmon pink. It’s a happy colour and although I may not wear all the various shades of pink, I especially love pink on flowers and flamingos.
What a delightful visit we had to the Flamingo Gardens in Florida – a feast for the eyes and a joy to my heart!
I stopped going to zoos many years ago because I believe animals should live in their natural habitat, to enjoy the freedom and life they were meant to live. They have not been put on this planet for our amusement in barred cages and circus rings, but rather for our enjoyment to see them in the wild.
The Flamingo Gardens is home to injured and rescued animals (hence, a joy to my heart!) with kind people who care for these creatures and provide a loving and safe environment for the unfortunate animals that have endured horrific situations. Whenever possible, they are released back into the wild after being treated and recovered. Unfortunately, many have permanent injuries and disabilities, and can no longer survive in the outside world. The sanctuary is now their permanent home with passionate caregivers to love them. Some of the stories are miraculous and truly amazing!!
Jean wore her gorgeous Flamingo sundress (which she wore as a skirt by pulling a pretty pink top over her dress) and matching pink shoes. She got a lot of looks and compliments, a most suitable outfit for Flamingo Gardens!
I wore my floral tank top, great camouflage among the lush foliage and beautiful blossoms of the botanical gardens.
If not, I hope you’ll put it on your list of places to visit!
