Parallel Universe--Floral Fireworks





With the fireworks still fresh in my mind I came back to edit recent photos from the gardens and fields...is it just me, or do these forms look like some of the typical "explosions" seen on July 4th? I have often thought that some of the bursts reminded me of very ephemeral flowers. Now I think I see fireworks in the blossoms. Or do I just have some kind of floral affliction going on in my head these days? I guess there could be worse mental maladies....

I like that idea of floral fireworks. I LOVE the daisies.

Wow, you're totally right. It's how the pedals recede into the distance at the tips, giving that explosion look. Now I'm going to look at flowers in a new light, I'm sure:) Love that first purple one. So unusual.

Oh! What is that top blue one? I like it!

Great comments and I'm glad it's "not just me" who's seeing fireworks! Sharkbytes--the top one is "eryngium" and not sure if it has a "common name"--easy to grow, short lived perennial, often self-seeds!! And dries beautifully!
