Recently I’ve noticed these flowers everywhere. I don’t know what they are, but they’re pretty. I could just be oblivious, but I don’t think they have them back home in Ontario.
For some reason they made me think of Alice in Wonderland. You know the scene where the playing cards are painting the white roses red, so they don’t anger the queen and get their heads chopped off? Here’s the Disney version.
Is it just me or does it not look as though someone was trying to change a white flower to pink in the first image? The top part is pink and the bottom part is white, as though someone took a paint brush to it. So I like to imagine that somewhere, sometime there was a little playing card person going around to all these flowers painting them pink in an attempt to keep his head attached to his body. Obviously he didn’t do a very good job as you can see the white petals in places still. And that’s why we don’t see playing card people around because the queen has gone…”Off with his head!”
