One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon – instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today. Dale Carnegie

50 Shades of Pink in The Pink Flower Mission by iHanna (Pink Peony) #desktopbackground

I was looking through some of the photos from this summer, and noticed that my Pink Flower Mission is evident not only on instagram. As usual I found lots of flower photos in the folders of my computer, and most of my flower photos are of pink flowers. Not too strange, since it is my favorite color. I’m drawn to it like a moth to the light.

I guess I am not just using my mobile phone camera, but also the small (and pink) Ixus and my big girl camera (Nikon d2500). So I’m sharing more pink flowers today, and a desktop background that my mom asked for. You can download it and use it all winter if you want to!

I love flowers. Period. Especially pink ones. And striped ones. And those that have layer upon layer of petals in different shades. And those that fill your entire head with a lovely smell of summer. And those tiny ones that you almost don’t notice until you are on your knees in the grass…

And actually not 50 shades, but more like 50 million shades of pink (and some purples too)… and I like each and every one of them.
