Pink Moss Rose (Portulaca grandiflora)All my previous photos of this flower showed only a bright splash of pink, and you could hardly see the individual petals.

Its true beauty was hardly recognized.

I had always wanted to capture the beauty of this rose-like flower, and today I got the chance to do just that.

The Moss Rose is also called Rose Moss, Portulaca, and Sun plant; it is edible, easy to grow, and hardy. However, it requires regular watering and full sun in order to bloom.  See more photos below; the first of which, shows the Variegated Moss Rose.
