Denzil is demanding we share our cheeriest pinks this week. If forced to pick the cheeriest from my selection, I’d go with the flowers below. They’re being true to both meanings of their name: pink in colour and pinked as in the feathery effect of the petal edges.
If you’d like extra helpings of pink cheeriness, check out the other submissions for this week’s challenge.

Beautiful pinks, Susan.
Thanks, Pat. The purer the pink, the sweeter the feeling.
I was wondering yesterday whether a bee is more likely to visit a symmetrical flower, symmetry and beauty often going together. Part of me thought a bee would not care if a petal or two fell off, but another part thought that beelines and the order in many flowers must have come about for some reason.
I don’t think bees are attracted to color, but to ultraviolet light which lights up like runways for them to land on. I also read that at least in some flowers, once they are pollinated, the color fades, so bees know not to visit that flower. Unseen worlds!
I can see why you chose those particular flowers as the cheeriest ones, they look so fluffy and happy 🙂
Quite a challenge to pick the cheeriest out of flowers. Who was it that described flowers as plants giggling? I forget.
Your pink flowers are all lovely, especially those frilly Pinks!
I love the frilly ones too.
A lovely pink selection Susan 🙂
And so many to choose from. I wonder if it is the commonest colour for flowers? It is for roses.
I seem to have a lot of photos of pink flowers
Soapwort? Now that’s an interesting flower I’ve never seen before.
I should get into this challenge as I happen to have a whole folder of ‘pink’ flower images to choose from without having to pore through my archives.
It can be used as soap in an emergency!
All in the pink and what a lovely cheery show.
Flowers of any colour are cheery to me.
Exceedingly cheery pinks. Thank you!
My pleasure, Tracy.
I’d never have known that top flower was a pelargonium! “Fancy” is indeed the word for it! Pink lends itself to fancy exceedingly well. But then there’s that Roselily, which shows that pink also takes well to elegance. Pink is often under-rated, I fear. It’s good you’ve given it center stage.
I had to look at it twice to make sure.
