Pink Saturday

OK so I'm cheating this week. It's not pink.... but I so wanted to share this photo I took at The Botanical Gardens a Kew in July this year. I have no idea what it is but I just loved it. It looked so furry and close up it looks fantastic. That's all thanks to the super macro lens John bought me last Christmas. If anyone has any idea what this little beauty is called I'd love to know.
If you squint slightly it might look pink!!!!! No that doesn't work. Oh well :)


Thanks once again to the lovely Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for hosting again this week. If you have time pop over to see Sheila at The Quintessential Magpie she writes the most lovely posts.
Wishing you all a very Pink Saturday :)

  2. Hi, Liz! Thank you so much for that kind comment. You are such a sweetie!

    And of course we will let this count as a pink post. I do believe I see hints of pink there. Then if you just put on your rose-colored glasses, the whole things turns a bright pink. Whatever the color, that plant is neat enough that I loved seeing it.

    Happy Pink Saturday to you...

    XO,

    Sheila :-)

  7. I have no idea what it is but I'm glad you shared it, it is just beautiful. I'm wondering how tiny it is if you took it with a macro lens.
