    Such a wonderful way to describe pink, “one of the colous that the Sun makes at Twilight and in the Dawns.”

    You are right, the pink we find in roses is delicate by the vary nature of the flower. Pull a petal and it will wither and dry in no time, its shade never the same.

    Lovely post.
