Pale Pink Desert Flowers

Globe Amaranth Gomphrena sp.

 Ptilotus sp, a type of grass. All 100+ species are native to the arid areas of Australia and are sometimes called by their Aboriginal name Mulla Mulla.

Gossypium sp, probably Sturts Desert Rose, the state emblem of the Northern Territory, a native plant that is closely related to cotton.

This last photo looks so much like an Okra flower, as well as Rose of Sharon, I wasn't surprised to find out that Gossypium is in the Mallow family.
