  1. The crickets weave a symphony at night – the buckwheat answers that with a symphony of color. Very synergistic of the insect and plant residents!

  2. I’ve heard of buckwheat, but I’ve never seen any growing nor its blossoms. beautiful!

  3. california buckwheat looks different than what we in michigan call buckwheat. i believe yours is prettier!!

  4. Your photo and words make me sigh…and want to be back in that desert/canyon landscape.
