A yard near our house had lovely purple pea flowers last year. That homeowner ripped our the pea vines but other people planted similar peas.
The crinkled petals of this flower seem paper like.

All sorts of color in thus group of nasturtiums.
A yellow-faced bumblebee thought this was a nice flower too. Kinda hogs the scene.
No bee this time.
An unusually red Calif. poppy.
A small green insect on the middle tulip gives a bit of contrast to the intense purple color.
Sensory overload for me.
I didn't get much detail in this photo but I really liked the yellow color.
