Contrasting gifts of wild abandon.
During the evening, the Oxalis folded its petals in verdant prayer.
Contrast then the wild abandon of its day flower.
In open ecstasy toward the sun, Oxalis throws its petals wide to receive the bounty of this ecology.
For us, the reward is the beauty of form. For the pollinators, it is the gift of nectar.
For all the creatures, Oxalis gives its sweetness freely.
