In Cee’s Flower of the Day post she told about “Pink Day”. I’d never heard of it, but it seems like a really bright idea: a day for standing up to bullies. Here is the Wikipedia description of it:
The International Day of Pink is an international anti-bullying event held annually during the second week of April. The event started when students David Shepherd and Travis Price saw another student, who was wearing a pink shirt, being bullied in their Central Kings Rural High School in Nova Scotia, Canada, and deciding to show support for the student by getting everyone at their school to wear pink the following day. The initiative inspired youth at Jer’s Vision who founded The International Day of Pink, an effort to support their peers internationally with resources and ways to make their schools safer.
These flowers are mostly showy in mass, the individual bloom is not a show stopper, like the rose, but when the morning sun hits them the opening buds have a lovely delicacy, both in form and in color.
