I confess that this is one of my favourite wild flowers that gives me tiny moments of joy every time I see them. Not unlike how I am with fruit blossoms, I can’t stop photographing them. Each one seems to be more lovely than the last, or perhaps it was that I had forgotten how beautiful they are and so have to take another photograph. So you might well see a repeat of this flower at some point in the future. Each stage of this lovely full bloom has its own appeal, from the tight red buds held in that close protective embrace by the twisting green sepals through to the softly drifting petals that will soon carpet the ground around the perfect pink flower, crowned with gold in the centre which is a such a delight. In any case it makes for another perfect Pink Flower Day and so I make no apologies! I hope this brings you a tiny moment of joy to start your day! A Flower a Day #326 (NB while I make every effort to identify the flowers posted, I make no guarantee that the name is correct. It’s about the photograph, not the name.:-) )
