Nature Photo Challenge: Pink

I’m entering another photo challenge and this time it’s Denzil’s weekly challenge and the theme is Pink. He’s in Belgium with gloomy weather and he thought a bit of pink would cheer us up. I’m in Minnesota with gloomy weather and I hope this cheers me up. I found a lot of pink in nature. Come have a look see.

I can’t wait to see these bloom this year, pink crabapple:

My neighbor’s coneflowers:

Another neighbor’s hibiscus:

Some pink cosmos:

A pink morning glory:

A pink cactus flower from the United States Botanic Garden:

A pink orchid also from the United States Botanic Garden:

And one of my all time favorites, the Minnesota state flower Showy Lady’s Slipper:

I’m sure I can find more but I think this will suffice. And yes, that did cheer me up!

  1. Beautiful flowers and photos! :)

  2. Surprising how many there are when you look around. Glad they cheered you up.

  3. So beautiful. I haven’t been to the US Botanic Gardens in years. I had completely forgotten about it.

  4. You have some beautiful pink flowers here too! I always love to see cosmos (they remind me of our North Korea trip!) and as you’ve discovered, hibiscus are among my favourites :)

  5. Very cheery, thanks Toby for entering my challenge. I think your neighbor loves coneflowers! Was that Lady’s Slipper growing wild or cultivated? Over here they are very rare.

  6. Beautiful! Brightens up my gloomy day! Thanks!
