We have all kinds of pink flowers blooming in the wild around Ocala and the rest of central Florida. I don't think they're the same as this one, though, but the first picture could have been taken here. So pretty.

Not familiar with this wildflower -- it is beautiful and aptly named! Thanks for the closeup and panoramic views...if I'm ever lucky enough to see it, I'll remember the name!

I have never heard of this flower, but it sure is pretty and interesting! It almost seems as though it was created with yarn.

Great photo post. Really enjoy learning something new about a different part of the world. Like the way you gave us photos of this wildflower zoomed out to closeup so we could see how it looks in the landscape. Beautiful against the ranch fencing.
