Pink Pipes

Precious Beverly at How Sweet the Sound hosts Pink Saturday. Please Pause at her Place to see Plenty of other Pretty Pink items that Precious Pink Participating People are Presently Presenting for your Perusing Pleasure.

Even though I've lived in Florida for over forty-five years, until I moved to the Tampa area, I don't believe I've seen giant Pink pipes sticking up out of the ground.


Here's a closer look.




These are water pipes! The picture below is from Tampa's water treatment plant where the Pink pipes are "born." I've learned that these pipe are called purple, which is the designated color for pipes carrying recycled or reclaimed water. However, I insist that they are Pink. What do you think?





See you in two days for Blue Monday!

That's too funny! Pink just seems to pop out when Saturday rolls around.
Are there any blue ones?

bj said...

I'll be carried to my grave swearing these are PINK!!
yOU always bring us such happy posts...just love it.

LV said...

Guess the color could be either one, depending on how your eyes were working that day. We will settle for pink today.

ooohhh let's just agree that it's pink :-) Maybe the person who painted it had a secret love for the color so he or she compromised - thus revealing a pinkish/purplish color LOL

Hello Sally! It's been a while since I blogged :-)And I see your new home is something to look forward to as work has already started.

Happy PInk Saturday!

We have those in CA too. They designate the reclaimed water, but we call them "purple" too. I'll go for pink!

Andrea said...

"Reclaimed water" that is too cool, no pun intended.

Blessings, andrea

Leave it to you to find pipes in the shade of pink or lavender! I'll settle for them being pink. Happy Pink Saturday!

I think all pipes should be painted pink - or maybe blue. No, they should be pink.

Happy Pink Saturday Sally, those darn pink pipes are just down right pretty. I wonder if a woman works there and decided the color. I mean if we are going to have pipes out in the open, should they look delightful? Love it. Thanks for sharing. Please stop by and let me share my PS post with you. Country hugs, Sherry

From far away they look pink, but up close more lavender. Interesting about the color's meaning. In the hospital, the purple gloves are worn for extra-dangerous things like delivering chemo, dealing w/ AIDS patients, etc. Maybe it's an international color for danger?

Blondie's Journal said...

Sorry. I think they are more lavender. And I think they should be painted green to blend in with the surroundings.

Happy Pink Saturday, Sally!!

RobinfromCA said...

I think they look lavender which, after all, is what happens when you add PINK to purple! Still, I think it's a cheerful little sight as you're driving down the road instead of something boring and pipe-colored!

Happy Pink Saturday!
Robin

Cathy said...

Maybe a little in between? But they are unusual!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Only in Florida will one see PINK pipes... Great Pink Saturday, Sally....

That is pink---but has a tint of 'lilac' in it (which makes it look a little purple).... ha ha

Hugs,
Betsy

Lily said...

They're pink enough for me! It's nice that they're "prettifying" the public works.

Barbara said...

Dear Sally, Only in Florida would I expect to see pink pipes, in TExas they would be brown or green.

They are awesome. Wow!

Happy Labor Day!
Barbara

Cindy said...

How cool is that! So much prettier than the white ones.

Beverly said...

Oh yes, those are definitely pink. In fact, I have witnessed pink pipes around Tampa myself.

Happy Pink Saturday, Sally.

Claudia said...

I'd say they were definitely pink! Happy Pink Saturday!

Sares said...

Who would have thought that you would ever spot a giant PINK pipe! Happy belated PS and have a beautiful Sunday!

I think a woman must have picked the paint, too pretty for a man, Happy Pink Saturday, Char

CC said...

Love how the pinks just seem to find us..and yes, those pipes are pink. :). Happy Pinks Sally..have a wonderful week.

Hi Sally...that's a hoot. They look pink...except in your last pic...it looks a bit lavendarish there. In the first pic, they have a preppy look going on with the pink and green. I guess if you have to have exposed pipes...they might as well be stylish! :-)
I am going to participate in Blue Monday again one day. I only have one blue thing in my post for this Monday and it is so small (a plate) and so far away in the pic...that I don't think it would qualify for a good Blue Monday post. Happy Pink Saturday and Blue Monday!

Hi Sally, I too insist that those pipes are PINK. I learned something new about water pipes. I wonder if it is just in that area???

Hugs...Jeanne
