Switchin' Flies

by Barney Nelson
A few weeks ago I wrote about wildflowers, but since then more have popped open. Maybe the prettiest new one is the yellow evening primrose. The most numerous and best smelling is scarlet gaura or scarlet beeblossom. The tiny, delicate honeysuckle-like flowers cluster on a tall spike and begin blooming from the bottom. They start out white, then fade to pink, then to red.
