Pink Evening Primrose Bud and Sheath Behind Open Flower 3604

Here’s a view of an Oenothera speciosa from behind. The long green thing is a bud that’s still closed. Next to it, yellow-orange, is a bud casing that has let loose its flower, whose pink petals I think you see beyond it. Red, yellow, green, orange, and pink: a great color mix, don’t you think?

Date: March 21.  Place: the Blackland Prairie in far northeastern Austin.
