Pink Cactus, Poem and Song: Quote It Saturday

Pink bloom from succulent plant: LadyD Books
Flowering Cactus

Do you know how many varieties and subcategories there are to the cactus!? Any help in identifying this plant by name is much appreciated. We admire its colorful blooms twice a year.

I always enjoy reading everyone's famous quotes. So much to learn from my visits with you. Poetry is so beautiful to read and listen to with rhyme and composition. I was 'pleased as punch' (pink punch) to find this special children's poem online.

Pink is a rose that sparkles

In the sun.

Pink is a book cover that you read.

Pink is a girl's cheek in the winter.

Pink is one of the colors of the rainbow.

In the sky's night.

Pink is paper that you write on.

Pink is nail polish  that you

Paint your nails with.

Pink is a marker that you color with.

A pink balloon that flies high in

The sky.

Pink is food coloring

That you put on Easter eggs.

Pink could be a girl's headband.

Pink is a shirt that has a heart

On it.

Pink is a warm, fuzzy blanket.

I realize when it comes to pink, this is not your typical fall color but I am amazed at how many wide range varieties of hues and pastels can be found in just one color. In fact the more I think on it, I'm in the mood for a sugar cookie with a little bit of pink sprinkled on top!

Enjoy and happy weekend! What fun and interesting memes are you participating in?
