Thread Name: Lyr Req: Pretty Little Pink
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Pretty Little Pink
Hmmm- I have always related pink in the rhymes to flower color and comparison with a flower.
(I hope no one tries to identify the flower! Of course several could be referred to depending on locality and preference.)
'Pink' in North American gardens refers to Dianthus, that pretty little pink beloved of gardeners, but this is not universal.
