Pink again
Pink again

There seem to be more flowers that are pink than any other color.  Or do I just take photos of pink flowers?  Or is it seasonal?  There are yellow and orange poppies earlier in the season, yellow daffodils, and yellow daisies.

The tiny yellow center is cool.  Maybe it’s the real flower and the pink ‘petals’ are bracts?  How do I remember that term? Or perhaps in this pair of pink containers there is one pistil and one stamen?  There’s no yellow in the right-hand one, but some curling purple structure.  Any botanists reading this?
