Pink Dandelion?

I’m not sure what this is, but it looked like a dandelion to me.  Isn’t that pink pretty?  Not sure what others would call it, but I wouldn’t consider it a weed — even if it were yellow.

Pink Dandelions

Linking up with Kim Klassen’s Texture Tuesday.  This week’s edition required using at least one of Kim’s new textures inspired by the television series Downtown Abbey.   I’m not a Downtown fan, but her new textures are nice.   I used Violet in this one, first with blending mode Color Burn, and a second layer as Screen.  For the frame, I used another of Kim’s textures — Sybil — first applied as a normal layer, then again with blending mode of Color Burn, then a third time as Multiply 100%.   I also used a light pink gradient, masked off the blooms, and a darker pink over the flower petals to bring back the color muted by the textures.

  1. Ooooh! I like this! And I love your processing.

  2. That’s pretty. It could be some variety of thistle. They often get white seed puffs that look dandelion-ish

    • That makes sense based on where I think I took this shot (beach-y area with lots of wildflowers). I looked back through my catalog and it was the only shot of these flowers that I took (or, at least, kept). Since it was over a month ago, I have no recollection of exactly where it was or what else was nearby. It didn’t strike me as a dandelion at the time — just yesterday when I decided to post it.

  3. There is beauty in all things and you have shown a great example of that. Lovely

  4. I don’t know what it is either, but it sure is pretty.

    • I’m sure that I was taken with the beautiful pink color when I decided to take this, but I don’t actually remember taking the picture. I was on vacation at the time, so it isn’t like I can go back and check what the plant looks like now — though I wish I could as it would be a LOT warmer.

  5. Cool capture, the texture looks great
