Ultra Pink was the name of a bright pink color in the Crayola Collection. Then it all went decidedly down hill from there, if you ask me!  From 1972 until 1990 Ultra Pink was known as Shocking Pink. Then it was known as Plug & Play Pink in the “Techno Brite” series!  What in the world is that?

So I’m sticking to a nice Ultra Pink color that looks on the purpley side in nature, and that may be shocking. But the Eastern Redbud Tree, as it is named, is actually a pinky-purpley color! Shocking to say the least, but oh so beautiful to look at! It is one of the first trees to flower in early spring, blooming huge pink flowers in large clusters right on the bark of the limbs of the tree!  A Shocking Pink that is such a boost to any garden!

During this period of ultra, shocking, and plug and play pinks, Crayola also decided to buy the Silly Putty Company. I’d say that fits right in! Do you remember copying the funny paper onto your Silly Putty? Now those were the days! The Silly Putty history was so fascinating look for a full blog post to come!

This post is just one of many in the Color Your World: 120 Days of Crayola ChallengeDay 94!

Check out some of the other 150+ challenge participants, it’s amazing what we have done with the Crayola colors!

    That’s a lovely tree! I’ve never heard of an Eastern Redbud tree. It looks like a cross between cherry blossom and bougainvilla.
