Calendars can be wonderful, and not just misunderstood objects of impending doom. Time is a measure that has been designed so many times it is hard to come up with new, interesting ideas. There are many ways to visually present a one year period and the contained events, and this is my attempt to convey a specific cyclic phenomenon.

This is a list of invasive plant species in Portugal, and their flowering cycle. The colors represent the main flower color, or its approximate tone. It needs some work, and I really want to add some interactivity to it, so I’m open to suggestions.
