One of my favorite family pictures is one of my Grandma wearing a bonnet. The picture is a black-and-white Polaroid, so I cannot tell what color the bonnet, but it looks as if it matches her dress. In my mind's eye, I imagine the dress and bonnet a pale lavender or crisp daffodil yellow. Since Grandma had red hair and always wore rouge and the reddest lipstick, the outfit may even have been a cool pastel green. Whatever the color, the bonnet looks smart with a wide bill and a satiny ribbon affixed around the cornice and tied under her chin in a large bow.
