Fleurs de Coton

Disaster - it's raining and cloudy today.  The flowers have closed up!  They've also changed colour (which I'd read would happen - 1st day white, 2nd day pink, 3rd day dead) and now have streaks of pink running through the petals :-

What a difference from yesterday, it doesn't look like the same flower
I went out with a paintbrush and tickled the insides of each flower, just in case they hadn't been pollinated yesterday.  This one was actually shut quite tightly, the other one is still slightly open.  It was such a lovely day yesterday I think the bees will have found them, but thought it wise to make sure!
