Happiness is being a trichromat

It is that time of the year when winter suddenly finishes and spring violently bursts out, with all flowers blooming in profusion: sakimidareru
咲き乱れる 。Only, this year the flowers did not last long. Our neighborhood has a squirrel invasion and they ate all flowers in a day, so today I had to buy flats of different flowers, hoping the squirrels do not like them.

In fact, the squirrels do not like all flowers, and this one pot shown below has survived for well over a decade. Are the colors not pretty? Yoko would say that happiness is being a trichromat.
