Visitors to this park could be mistaken for thinking they are looking at the world through rose-tinted spectacles - because it is covered in pink flowers. The striking landscape - in Takinoue, Japan - is blanketed in a sprawling pink moss, known as phlox. It started with just one small box of seeds in 1956 but has now spread to cover a staggering 25 acres, following further planting. Tourists flock to Takinoue Park for an annual festival, where entry costs just 3 pounds.<br />
