Today on the allotment I found this very pale pink Wallichianum. The photo is slightly redder than the flower which is a paler pink. It stood out from the other pink forms and I think it is rather pretty :)

Yes, that's a very attractive one psilo :)
Digital cameras certainly don't capture colours well. It seems to depend on the model as to which they manage and which they don't. Mine is appalling with reds and purples.

yes Philomel,when I had my slr it did blues very badly and magenta brilliantly. My digital seems to be the other way around and my psilostemons always come out so pale. Also I have a wonderful deep orange poppy and it always comes out red. Maybe I should load up my slr again especially for them :))
