I guess if your blossoms are rather small and ordinary, then to get attention you go for an artistic array;

Desert parsley


Desert parsley,

Fernleaf biscuitroot,

Lomatium dissectum,

Carrot family



or, use an array for just another method of differentiation.


Western Groundsel

Senecio integerrimus
Sunflower family


  1. First thought that came to mind was 4th of July fireworks! Especially that first one.

    • The parsley reminds me of that too; the “starburst” fireworks.

  2. Even the simplest of flowers are beautiful to me, but the lovely pattern the parsley makes is certainly an added bonus.

    • Another nice thing about the parsley is that it is plentiful, stand tall and can be seen for long distances, giving nice splashes of yellow in lots of places.

  3. Love the similar patterns the two share!

    • I found that interesting too, Stacey. Two vastly different plants using approximately the same strategy.

  4. I love the different patterns in nature! Makes me think of cow parsnip or as Eric reminded me: (grizzly bear ice-cream!)

    • There must be some kind of discipline that studies nature’s patterns. That would be a very interesting study!

  5. I like your photographic arrays much better than those we use in the world of computer languages!

    Good stuff.

    • Much easier on the eyes… and the brain! Probably make more sense too.

  6. I love the depth of green in both; these are the two flowers I passed up today. :o) Tho my groundsel has white petals. connecting these two made complete sense…

    • They shared the same structure, then went their different ways. Yes, I love the green too!

  7. WOW! certainly got my attention!

    • The parsley is quite large and so it is easily seen and especially noticeable with the pattern.

  8. That parsley looks like a yellow snowflake! Very nice!
