Dear Judy;
	I agree with Kelly that the answers are more anthropological 
than horticultural. Even birds and lower primates are attracted to 
bright colors Maybe it is in the genome. I suspect some brightly 
colored flowers ended up in a pile in a cave or around a camp fire 
with the gathered bulbs and roots for dinner and set aside.

	Which came first the bouquet or the vase? Just joking.
