First and foremost, spring comes to mind, as soon as I begin to try to associate something with this color.I always imagine that divine period of the year, when trees break out in blossom. All the trees are eye-popping at that time, but peach trees are the most eye-catching. Their delicate petals excel all others.However, I must confess that in my colored pencil box the pink pencil was longer than the others, because it was rarely used. Finally, I want to remind you of the idiom, "to look through rose-tinted glasses", which means to see only the pleasant side of something. This idiom is used in many countries. Is that because of its association with a nice rose or the blossoming peach? I don't really know. I suppose that it means that people consider pink to be a pleasant color.

In this season we worship the sun god for giving us everything..In southern states of India the summer festival is celebrated as their new year. In some places it is also known as the harvest festival . After the colourful summer/spring the monsoon rain will start its work to revive our rivers and lakes.. The awesome pink is also one of our summer colour. Mind blowing pink is kindling my nostalgic feelings... thanks for the lovely picture.

Pink is connected with love, and the 1st of May, it is the feast of love in Czech republic. The man should kiss a woman under the cherry tree. The photo is very suitable for this month.

It shows calm and kindness. Here in Brazil we don't have all seasons like spring, autumn, summer and winter - we just have summer and winter.
