Pink poppy flowers plus links to fascinating manifestations of pink in nature. Some of these may be new to you – a good few of them are from Australia! Don’t miss Pink Link No. 6, one of my favourite posts from Ellen Jennings who’s based in the South Carolina Lowcountry – I love her photography!
Click on ANY of the images below to enlarge.
I took these on 24 Dec 2019 in Dunedin Botanic Gardens, New Zealand.

Nature offers MORE than pink flowers. These may surprise you, as they did me!
