#MySundaySnapshot – Peculiar But Pretty In Pink 22/52 (2020)

Welcome to this week’s #MySundaySnapshot post, which is part of a snap-sharing-blog-linky series that you are very welcome to join. Click here for further information and guidelines upon this linky should you wish to take part. 

How are you all doing? Are you managing to get by living in lockdown or has the isolation driven you insane already?

I’ve spent this past week with my head buried in various books and must say that I have rather enjoyed getting back into reading – I was once a keen book worm but somewhere along the way I must have misplaced my mojo and I’ve really missed the floating away into the freedom of fiction.

I’m your stereotypical ‘chick-lit’ reader and tend to stick to easy reads from the likes of Jane Green, Sophie Kinsella, Cecelia Ahern, Helen Fielding, Freya North, Jill Mansell, Fiona Neil, Marian Keyes and so forth. I’m currently mid-way through reading Suzy K Quinn’s latest book ‘The Bad Mother’s Virus’ which is a comical take upon parenting throughout the present pandemic.

Not only have I returned to reading but I’ve also managed to click on the camera and to shoot some snaps from the great outdoors – well my parents’ driveway to be precise, but still the results aren’t so bad if I say so myself.

According to my Mum, this particular plant is related to the onion family, and given that onions have many layers, I feel that I relate to this peculiar but pretty plant somewhat.

I seem to be feeling far more like myself of late which can only be a good thing. It’s no use being or trying to be anyone other than yourself as it’ll only ever end in tears and they’re sure to be your own.

“The world is just a great big onion
And pain and fear are the spices that make you cry
Oh, baby, and the only way to get rid of this great big onion
Is to plant love seeds until it dies.”

Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell – The Onion Song

    Glad you are feeling more like yourself. This is such a gorgeous plant. Where would one get one? I love to read, but not much of a chick lit reader x

    My parents have these on their front garden too! I never would have guessed they were related to an onion. It’s good to hear you’re feeling more like yourself again and that you’re getting back to reading. Reading is pretty much my favourite thing to do and although I gave up chicklit on the whole about 10 years ago, I always read Marian Keyes and Jane Green.

      Marian Keyes and Jane Green are just pleasurable reads, aren’t they? I’m getting another Suzy K Quinn started today.

    Oh my goodness, I want one of these plants. Will you ask your mum what it’s called please?

      I will ask her but she just said ‘it’s related to the onion that’s all I know’.

    All the reading sounds a lot of fun!
    That really is an unusual plant. It is very pretty. x
