  2. I’ve been looking at Josh Jones’ fabulous fireworks display. This top photo resembles fireworks. The center is the explosion, with the petals being the burst! Lovely. Beautiful color and detail, all of them. All your shots are lusciously laudable.

    • I thought of the “fireworks” look too. There’s something about the pattern that is always attractive.

  3. They’re beautiful, I didn’t know until your post yesterday that asters are related to sunflowers although I guess it’s fairly obvious from looking at them 🙂

    • That whole family is very large and has some great flowers in it, some of which are quite surprising.

    • They are pretty blossoms. There’s something clean-cut about them that’s very attractive.
