The Power of Pink... or who knew?

Yep... Spring is trying it's best to arrive and the Prunus outside the flat is a blaze of pink... Or as it is known; Prunus cerasifera Nigra - Purple Leaf Flowering Plum Tree.

We have not really had the traditional August winds and dust yet... maybe they will stay away this year?

Pink is a colour I always associate with spring and two singers...
Pink (aka Alecia Moore) and South African singer Marloe Scott-Wilson or Mandi Heyns in real life... I bet not many knew that! Other SA music trivia is that Jennifer Jones is her daughter... We keep it in the family here in South Africa! For some shocking (pink) name facts of SA singers check out Real Names R Us. One not on the list is Gene Rockwell (Gert Smit)... Nou ja nou weet julle!
So without further ado I will exit with the lyrics from Pink and her latest hit... Who Knew! a Fitting song title to this theme no?

You took my hand
You showed me how
You promised me you'd be around
Uh huh
That's right
I took your words
And I believed
In everything
You said to me
Yeah huh
That's right

If someone said three years from now
You'd be long gone
I'd stand up and punch them up
Cause they're all wrong
I know better
Cause you said forever
And ever
Who knew

Remember when we were such fools
And so convinced and just too cool
Oh no
No no
I wish I could touch you again
I wish I could still call you friend
I'd give anything

When someone said count your blessings now
For they're long gone
I guess I just didn't know how
I was all wrong
They knew better
Still you said forever
And ever
Who knew

Yeah yeah
I'll keep you locked in my head
Until we meet again
Until we
Until we meet again
And I won't forget you my friend
What happened

If someone said three years from now
You'd be long gone
I'd stand up and punch them out
Cause they're all wrong and
That last kiss
I'll cherish
Until we meet again
And time makes
It harder
I wish I could remember
But I keep
Your memory
You visit me in my sleep
My darling
Who knew
My darling
My darling
Who knew
My darling
I miss you
My darling
Who knew
Who knew

This is a great song and I love the lyrics... seeng we are talking aboutt knowing and trees amongst other things ponder this:
"Knowing trees, I understand the meaning of patience. Knowing grass, I can appreciate persistence."
