Nature Photo Challenge: Pink

Fancy pelargoniums

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.

Pinks with feathered petals

Pink and yellow roselily
Saponaria officinalis 'Rosea Plena'
Saponaria officinalis ‘Rosea Plena’ (soapwort)
Cistus (rock rose) with stachys (lamb's ear)

  1. In the course of a little running around last weekend, I found a pink bluebonnet. You can imagine how I smiled at that — just as I smiled at some of these. I’m not generally enthusiastic about pink, but the variety of shades does include some that appeal.

    1. Surely that’s quite rare? It must have been tempting to mark it and collect the seeds, although I dare say that would be illegal.

      1. Collecting seed would be difficult for a variety of reasons. For one thing, the plant is four hours from my home. For another, it was quite young — and several weeks away from producing seed — when I saw it. And last but not least, I spotted it in a pasture, and had to photograph it through a fence with a telephoto lens — no trespassing allowed!

    1. There’s an art to appreciating the season right through to the very last days – you have to be more disciplined than I am to apply it!
