Late Thursday Challenge: (Mountain) PINK


Here's a pastel gem from the Texas hill-country for your viewing pleasure in honor of Valentines week. I shot this fading beauty just as the stems began to turn from green to pale brown. When you pull these lovely flowers up from the roots, they make a single bouquet and stay pretty for quite a few days in water. Mountain Pink is one of my very favorite wild-flowers that grow on the rocky Texas limestone hills. To learn more about this pretty, pink plant, click the link under the title of this post for access to a printable PDF file from Texas A&M University.

Some posts on this blog contain affiliate links or sponsored links. I receive a small commission whenever a product is purchased through an affiliate link. Sponsored links are paid for by a company who wishes to improve their Google ranking, but I always check to make sure these are reputable sites and never allow any links that are questionable to be placed.

The links in my "Sweet Linkage" section are either sponsored links or personal links that I find interesting (including the links to the blogs that both of my teen children run).

I occasionally run ads on my blog in exchange for money or traded advertising, or receive products in exchange for a review or giveaway posts. I also participate in campaigns by brands that offer to pay me to write about their products after using them. Any post that is sponsored will be noted as such. All opinions expressed on Sprittibee.com are my own, and any review, give-away, sponsored post, graphic ad, or product that I mention or link to are ones that I believe are reputable and worthy companies.
