Delicate spikes

As soft as spikes can be, Love in the mist, nigella damascena is a pretty annual that self seeds, turning up in shades of blue, pink, purple and white. It’s one of the plants I remember and love from early childhood. It’s my entry for Becky’s march square challenge today. The theme, is very open, photos can be prickly, spiky, sharp, jagged, pointy etc. as long as they’re square.

Becky’s September Challenge

It’s another square month and for September Becky has chosen pink, this is what she says.

‘In the Pink’ – means perfect condition or in good health, so that could be human or not!
‘Tickled Pink‘ – means delighted, so I’m thinking happy, fun and of course delighted. That could be you or the subject of your photograph.
Pink – you can of course simply share anything that is coloured pink
There is an extra challenge for those of you up for it – can you manage to combine two of these, or maybe even all three?

So I thought this would be easy because I like pink, but most of the pink photos I have are of flowers. I expect we’ll all share quite a few and that’s what I’m kicking off with.

Much as I love all roses, there’s something very special about single ones and this is a gorgeous colour, what do you think? perhaps you prefer the most sophisticated varieties?
