Pretty in Pink: pictures

There's a lot of pink in the garden at the moment and here's some pictures.

Some of the colours are very true, others not. Of special note is the darling little erodium. This has already been flowering for weeks and seems never to stop. I used to have a lot of different varieties but have carelessly lost most of them. The Amaryllis, or Hippeastrum as we are now to call them, is rather a miracle, as it survived sub-zero temperatures in the greenhouse last winter. I noticed a bud on 25th April, brought it into the house and da da! Fantastic flowers (pink, not red as it looks)and another stem to come.
Or see the gallery
Any hints about better arrangement of pictures would be welcome.
