Pink Saturday

Photobucket

Bev, of How Sweet the Sound has inspired many of us to celebrate PINK Saturday each week. Check there to join in the fun! Today I am celebrating In the Gloaming. One of the blogs I follow is Scotland in the Gloaming, a beautiful gallery of sunsets and sunrises around my favorite British Isle. The photos are magnificent. Of course, gloaming refers to that time immediately after the sun goes down or rises. Yesterday when I was driving to school I was atraveling through the gloamin' and this is what I saw!
Photobucket Not exactly of the calibre to qualify for this wonderful site on the blog, but lovely none the less!
The gloaming comes, the day is spent, The sun goes out of sight, And painted is the occident With purple sanguine bright.

  3. I can almost hear that little cloud, huffing and puffing to catchup with the others. Happy P.S. It's a good contribution!

  6. I've always appreciated that magical time of day, too....well, the evening gloaming, anyway, as I'm rarely up for the morning one. ;-)

    I never knew that was called gloaming. I feel so much smarter now for having learned a new word. I have a hunch I'll be squeezing it into as many conversations as possible this next week, just to show off my newfound knowledge! ;-Þ

    I think your picture is beautiful. You certainly captured the pink. The poem is really neat, too. I think I'll try and memorize it. I say "try", because these (menopausal) days, I do good to remember my own name at times!

  11. Your clouds are every bit as beautiful as a piece of delicate china - they are totally unique one-off sculptures by Mother Nature
    and I love your photo.

  18. Very wonderful Pink post. I see from your sidebar, Jane Austen is your favorite author - she is mine too. My favorite novel, Mansfield Park - I love the character, Fanny Price. Hope you have a wonderful new week.
