Field bindweed with partially pink outer corolla, but lacking dark marks around the throat. It seems that field bindweed flowers start off dark, and fade with age, as can be seen by the presence of a white flower on the same stem as a pink flower (and the half open flowers were obviously darker). I'm not sure whether this is f. pentarrhabdotus (5 white stripes extending to margin) or f. perroseus (white star in the middle of the outer corolla). I'll have to see if I can find a photographable younger flower.
