In The Pink

 Passing a community college on Saturday, we saw this out front.


Driving around the building, we saw even more pink pinwheel gardens.



One red one among the others.

Going inside, we saw even more through the windows.




There were no signs of explanation anywhere. I know that blue pinwheels represent child abuse, but could not find on the web what pink might mean! And it is not breast cancer month, so I am clueless! 


Who has seen the wind?

Neither I nor you:

But when the leaves hang trembling,

The wind is passing through.

 

Who has seen the wind?

Neither you nor I:

But when the trees bow down their heads,

The wind is passing by

They're pretty, but I haven't a clue what they're about.

Ann said...

Breast cancer would have been my first guess, other than that I wouldn't have a clue.

Anni said...

A gender gesture? Someone had a baby girl? But the one red one throws me off. (Just guessing)

Rose said...

If you ever find out, let us know.

Martha said...

Pretty but now I want to know what they were for!

I love that little poem about the wind, Ginny. And what a mystery about the pinwheels. Be sure to update us if you ever find out their symbolism. ~Andrea xoxo

Reanaclaire said...

Ginny, you always put up something rare and unique! Yes, do let us know what they are for...

Jeanette said...

Maybe they are in honor of someone fighting breast cancer or someone who lost their battle. Either way, they are very pretty!

Oh my goodness I love pink too - just makes you feel good.

Eye-catching and looks a lot like some "yard art" that young people I know have decorated acquaintances' yards with.

Fascinating..not sure what it's about but looks quite lovely.

My thought would be a Yard Art gesture ---celebrating someone's birthday --or maybe new baby on the way....

You asked about my heart.... I have no idea about my next step (whether they will remove the growth or not)... My biggest question is "Did it cause my A Fib back in 2018????" My next appointment is not until July -- so unless I have problems (which I am not), I won't know much until then.... They obviously are not worried about it or else I would have heard something?????

Hugs,
Betsy

Whatever the meaning, it's a pretty color.

What ever the reason, this is very fun! You find the best things to share.

Nancy Chan said...

I too have no idea but they are pretty. Nice poem.

DeniseinVA said...

Symbolic and I would like to know of what. Loved the poem you chose. It was very windy here a couple of hours ago. All the little whirligigs were coming off our trees like rain.

Carla from The River said...

I like them. Are they homemade?

Great-Granny Grandma said...

How pretty. Let us know if you ever find out their meaning.
And I love the poem.

Jenny the Pirate said...

It's a mystery! But a pretty one. xoxo
