parading Pink

A rose that smells as good as it looks – the maidenly Blush Noisette. Not smelling of hazelnut as the French word suggests but akin to the hybrid rose produced in 1817, by a French gardener, Noisette, of Charleston, South Carolina, from the China rose and the musk rose

just putting on the pink – hydrangea macrophylla ‘apple blossom’

And a Yarrow wildflower turning from its usual white or yellow – Achillea millefolium in the pink

But ’tis your uncontrolled power
Goddess-like to produce a flower,
And by your breath, without more seed,
Make that a Pink which was a Weed…”

Henry King ~ The Pink

Just out of the camera and so am joining in Cee's Fun Photo Challenge: Pink
