This is gorgeous, isn't it! Can you believe this vibrant flower blooms in the desert? Now here's what's really interesting to me: each petal has a spot, and each spot has just enough nectar to attract insects. The insects visiting are the means of this flower propagating. I just learned this. Here I thought the entire purpose of those bright red spots was to be beautiful and please me!
PS ... Who knew that purple and red could "go" so well?!
