It’s the season for the flowering plants and various cuttings which have wintered over indoors to move outdoors for the summer. As I care for them I note again that a majority are pink. Is pink really the the dominant colour of flowers in the plant world, I wonder. I scanned a few – at left are some oleanders, in the center are single flowers from geranium clusters , and at right is a dipladenia blossom. Some closeups below.
My favourite colour is red, and pink is a light red, vaalenpunainen in Finnish.
So many many shades of pink… Nature is quite the artist.
