Wild Pink

Wild Pink

Wild flowers have been allowed to grow unmolested by the lawnmower at Magnolia Cemetery in Charleston and this morning there were more types than I ever remember seeing there. A nice patch of these pink beauties, perhaps some kind of mallow, caught my eye.

A single bloom off on its own shows  delicate pink shades.

The ground was dry and after scanning for snakes, ants and other creatures I got down on the ground for a few images

  1. Hi Ellen.. just love these and I suspected they’re a gorgeous flower that we inherited a few of in a previous garden.. pink evening primrose. I’d love to see them in a big swathe like this. Here’s a page I found when confirming the id, it shows the flower close-up and it has the same appearance. Oenothera speciosus Rosea.
