Palette

These are a few of the flowers just starting to bloom along the sidewalks and empty lots and in between the veggies and the huge molehills left by dune mole-rats, in Aurora. Even more fascinating than the variety is the relationship between colours and insects - white, yellow and orange are associated with midges, purples and blues with an insect locally known as 'stinkluise' and with horseflies. I always wonder what happens to them between seasons.
