Herewith is a post for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Who amongst us has not been touched in some way by this terrible disease?
The colour theme for such a post must of course be pink.
I firstly thought about posting some pink flower images, like these Snugglepot and Cuddlepie flowers (Banksia? Australian readers will know)

Who knows, in 70 years time they may have cured breast cancer, or at least found a less invasive way to treat it.
In photographing my daughter's pink possessions it then struck me how different all our respective book collections were.
