I photographed these flowers earlier today while walking around San Diego’s Balboa Park. They grow on a small bush and the bees seemed very happy to find these blooms in early February. I couldn’t resist taking a few pictures of them, even though I have no idea what these light purple flowers are. If you know, please enlighten me in the comments!

      Wow, thank you very much for letting me know about the name of this flower. I find many beautiful flowers around here but so many of them are not labeled.

I'd love to hear what you think about my photos. Please leave your comments below.
