Photo Hunt - Pink

The theme for this week's Photo Hunt is pink. For once I don't need to do something like a blue work shirt by Thomas Pink. Here are two blooms from a little Sempervivum (house leek) that is growing in a small gap in the wall of our front garden.

Pretty pink for this week Jams. :) Hope your weekend is going well. :)

My son is still in Blackpool playing pool. They beat all the teams in the team events but England, and progressed up to the semi final, where they got beaten.

Such a wonderful little flower. And so much detail in the image. I bet the flavour is delightful as well.

Beautiful flowers, so unique, I have never seen any like them. They are very pretty.

A. said...

They always look so exotic and yet, I suppose, relatively common. Great shot. I can even see the cobwebby bits clearly.

So gorgeous. It is quite like a passion flower, only pink.

My pink is posted. Come by to view if you can find time. Happy weekend.

I am in heaven seeing all the pretty pink things. I think the little yellow thingamajigs make the flower even prettier.

Thanks everyone!

marta said...

Great macro shot. I have never heard them referred to as 'house leeks'. I know them more as hens and chicks. The wikipedia entry on houseleek is pretty interesting. Protect a house from lightning??!!

BTW, I also like your photo of the Phygelius. I love those plants. Great picture of 'Devil's Tears' cultivar.

What a beautiful and unusual flower. I don't recall ever seeing one like it before. My pinks are up here.

Carin said...

Very beautiful pink flowers. They look rather tropical! Might that be because you have hot weather too.
Anyway enjoy your weekend!
