In the Pink

On the top right, petals from the Pond Apple tree fall into the water and make a lovely pink and white display. Bottom right, the graceful, hanging Fireflag blossoms are a favorite snack of the Purple Gallinules.

iNaturalist experts confirmed for me that the plant on the left is Kosteletzkya Pentacarpos, or Saltmarsh Mallow, which – despite its name – apparently grows in both fresh and brackish water, as well as in salt marshes and along seashores (Florida Native Plant Society).
