Pale pink

Unidentified flower, found at the local Potter's:

Like a flower inside a flower.

(Leftovers from 6 weeks ago. I'm really behind on photo sorting.)


  1. Me too on the photo sorting - still back in June (blogging is sooo time consuming). As for the flower I'd try the mallow family, Malvaceae. All the best, Steve

  2. Thanks. I looked up mallows. They all have the five petals, but the central pistil seems to be different, more feathery. Still, there are so many hybrids and varieties, and imports, too, these days, that I find it very hard to identify flowers from the nursery.

  3. When I come across a flower, I'm never much interested in the detail. Once having photographed it so I can peer at it on screen, I find it fascinating.

  4. I was going to guess the geranium family - that flower within a flower structure. But could be anything...
    I have recently re-started work on my 2013 photos...

    It's Platycodon grandiflorus, which comes in many forms, including pink.

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
