Pink in the Park

These bright pink flowers, known as echinacea, are growing at the southernmost tip of Manhattan.

I found them thriving — safely away from tourists’ feet — behind an iron fence in a quiet corner of busy Battery Park.

By the way, in case you were wondering … no, these images weren’t Photoshopped (I don’t even own Photoshop). Mother Nature gave the flowers that color, not me.
