"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

Pink, pinker, pinkest!
That was my first impression when I watched the first match of Australian Open 2018 in Melbourne.
Personally I don't like these pinks and I'm sure a lot of people also raised their eyebrows by looking on these tennis outfits.

    It could be a paler shade of pink @april. Then it could be argued to be soothing to the eye! :D

    I know we are aiming to a gender neutral clothing, but watching the male athletes wearing pink tennis outfits from top to toes is still weird for me, @mheredge . :)

    Hahaha. I bought some very cheap training shoes today that are grey and pink @april . It's not my favourite colour but I wasn't complaining at 7€.
  • wow i think you like pink very much

    Na Mertens moet ook Halep eraan geloven: Wozniacki wint Australian Open en is de nieuwe nummer één

    Caroline Wozniaki is the champion of The Ladies' Singles Australian Open 2018 after a three hour thrilling finale match against Simone Halep. :D <3

    Roger Federer won the Championship title of the Men's Singles in The Australian Open 2018.
    He wore pink shoes, @mheredge and @vinventnguyen . :D

    His tennis shoes are much pinker than mine @april. But the bright pink laces when I look down really do dazzle me!
