Happy Thursday! Today, we have a pink theme, to match our lovely peach blossoms, pictured above, which importantly are blooming, despite frosty conditions. First, Channing Daughters reports that its 2015 rose wines have arrived, in an array of blush hues. “Drinking these pinks wines will at least make you feel like spring is here,” says the Bridgehampton winery.

Second, the Montauk Chamber of Commerce reports there will be a full PINK moon rising over Montauk (and presumably the rest of the Hamptons) on Friday, April 22, at 1:25 a.m. Please mark your calendar. The moon is also called the Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon and the Fish Moon, according to the Old Farmers Almanac. And lastly, Helen Ficalora, the Montauk jeweler known for her signature pink gift boxes, subtly reminds us all that Mother’s Day is coming up soon.
