[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is "the mallow-leaved bindweed" (Convolvulus althaeoides).
They often be found on waste and along railways.
Typical flower you can see in the region of southern Spain.
According to a botanist, this plant can grow pretty well in mild climate as well, though produce very few flowers. They obviously love heat.

I took this photo in May, 2003 around Fuengirola, Costa del sol.
Their blight pink flowers and gray silvery leaves looked so pretty against dry reddish soil.

Beautiful composition, even if the flour is too centered IMO.
Great noisy BG and very good details.
Well done.
