Ah, winter has passed and spring is upon us. Which means flowers are making the natural world explode with color.

IMHO, there is nothing more enticing than the brilliant display of plant’s sexual organs.

Let’s hear it for colorful sex!

Black Primroses

 

No, these aren’t real black primroses. I adjusted the photo’s color with Photoshop.

But it’s only a matter of time before we’ll see real flowers with exotic colors that have never been available before.

In just the last few years Primula hybrids have been introduced with larger flowers and brighter colors. Anything is almost possible.
