French Pinks ~ Part 2

This week I am picking up where I left off last week. More pink in photos from France!

A lovely rosé for sale in the gift shop at Chambord:


Pink roadster on a carousel in Chartres:


Chartres Cathedral has been on my bucket list to visit for years. It is the home of the Chartres Labyrinth, perhaps the most famous labyrinth in the world. Some of you may remember that we have a garden replica of the Chartres Labyrinth at the farm. The Cathedral has many other interesting elements. This is an angel sundial that is on one of the exterior corners. The sun light gave it a pink cast and I did some editing in Photoshop to create a vignette and to add lighting elements.




Flowering tree behind Notre Dame in Paris (and yes, I got great photos of the flying buttresses, but they aren't pink):


Until next time


This post is linking up with:
Beverly's Pink Saturday @ How Sweet the Sound. Check out her blog to see what others have chosen to represent PINK this week.
Jenny @ off on my tanget for Alphabe-Thursday where this week's Letter is "E" - E is for Edification and Enjoyment which I got from being able to walk the Labyrinth at Chartres Cathedral.

Thanks so much for stopping by! And tune in next week for a third installment of French Pinks.

Your post this week brought out that inner child in me because of your pink car on the carousel. It is so sweet. I would much rather be sitting n it than a horse bobbing up and down. The flower from behind Notre Dame and the rose’ were lovely, too. Posts like these are always extra special nice when I have been there. HPS.

Those bottles of wine would be so elegant for a bridal shower! And I think I am in lust over that pink roadster! I would love that for a coffee table! I may have to go search Craigs list!

Thanks for a fun and exciting link to Alphabe-Thursday.
