All the flowers are lovely, but I particularly like those with shades of pink.

kate: thank you for dropping by and leaving a comment. I think any flowers with vibrant colours are beautiful.

barbara: for all the dryness of the Paracas desert, it is still surprising to find life htere, including plants eeking out an existance, lizards, anything that flowers implies there must be insects or some other organism to poliinate. We even saw a pelican along the coast (of which I have a phot but did not post).
