I’m sharing this gallery of pink flowers as part of Travel With Intent’s weekly one word challenge. A new topic is announced each Sunday. You’ve probably guessed that this week’s subject is pink. Please head over to take a look at the other submissions – you’ve still got a few hours if you fancy playing along this week too.

    Pink to make the boys wink! Marvellous! It’s great reading your posts and finding out about the names of all the different flowers and natural things. What did Oscar Wilde mean when he wrote in Garden of Eros of “the anemone that weeps at daybreak….like a silly girl before her love.?

      I had meant to share some orange lilies but when the post was almost ready, I followed the pink prompt instead. The other is drafted for a day when I’m feeling a bit more brash!

    I don’t see a link in your response to Eliza, but I certainly am enjoying the whole idea of humans posing as flowers! Do we get to choose which flower we’ll be? This is hilarious. I thank you (and Eliza) for the wonderful distraction from moving!
