Delicately pink

I captured these beauties in a little park in Napier. I have never seen them before, but they remind me of cotton candy candy floss. If you know their name, I do hope you let me know.

*edit* Thanks to Donna over at Gardens Eye View, this is a Joey flower. Upon further research, it's a native to Australia and very heat resistant and they call it Mulla Mulla. Thanks so much, Donna!!

They are beautiful (and suddenly I am wondering if I have any peppermints in the cupboard).

What a pretty and unusual looking flower. It reminds me of those "fake" colored Christmas trees only in miniature.

I love cotton candies. These flowers are so beautiful. Indeed with a very delicate color. Very soothing to the eyes.
