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.

    Wonderful! Some great pinks and I love the close up of the mallow – the lines left me feeling slightly dizzy.
    And many thanks for linking into One Word Sunday

    A tumble of roses! Exactly! These are wonderful. And I agree with Debbie above that the mallow’s lines are a fast track to vertigo, especially if you scroll it up and down a few times. (I amuse myself easily.)

      I’ve called the stripes beelines, but in search of the real term (nectar guides) I came upon this. I liked the idea that bees sometimes have memory lapses… that makes me feel a whole lot better. And I read the one about how bees can be trained to recognise human faces provided they can be tricked into thinking the humans are large flowers. My mind is going into overdrive imagining how we could trick bees into thinking we were flowers.

        Thanks for the info-filled link, Susan. Perhaps to train bees, we need to stand perfect still in the garden for hours on end with a tube of honey in our mouth? Maybe just a laminated photo of us wearing UV lipstick would do the trick? 🙂
