Flowery Fireworks

 

A different type of bang

A different sort of boom

Bursting forth, summer’s blossoms shoot off a few fireworks of their own…

And they’re every bit as dazzling as the explosive variety.  Though… much more quiet in their display.  😉

 

To those of you here with me in the States, have a safe and happy 4th of July weekend!  To those of you elsewhere in the world… well, I hope you’re safe and happy too!  ❤

    I’ll share one of our old broadcasting tags for this holiday weekend.. “Do not go forth on the 4th with a fifth or you may not live to forth on the 5th!” Yeah, we all thought we were clever… lol Happy 4th

    • I love blue delphinium! I don’t have any in my own garden, I came across that one on a bike ride and screeched to a grinding halt to stop and snap a photo of it. It was a bright sunny afternoon so the photo is a bit over exposed, the actual color was a deeper blue, but I still liked the way it turned out. A great blue for “red, white & blue” too! 😉 Happy 4th Lois! ❤

    • Oh “Flower Power” I love that! Wish I would have thought of using that phrase, I’ll have to put that in my memory banks to use later. 😉
      Apparently a lot of fireworks are actually designed with flowers in mind, which doesn’t surprise me – so much inspiration can be gleaned from the beautiful and interesting things found in nature.
      Thanks so much Val! x ❤

  10. Gorgeous flower photos! I much prefer this kind of color explosion. The passionflower is absolutely amazing! I’ve got to get one of those. Wishing you a safe and happy 4th as well!

    • Thanks Trisha! Me too, but I also love the loud booming and sparkly lights bursting in the sky from regular fireworks – so fun! I’m excited to see some tonight. It’s the mosquitoes biting whilst watching them that I can do without, they’re terrible here. I’ll have to douse myself in lavender, lemon, and peppermint oils 😉
      Yeah gosh, I’m so loving my passion flowers, I’ve never grown them before, and I’m definitely adding them to my regular list for future growing seasons.
      Happy 4th! 🙂

  19. You really shine through your beautiful flower pics Jewels! I marvel at how each flower is unique and beautiful in its own expressive way, unlike any other, including those of the same kind, a bit like us:-)

    • Thanks so much! I know what you mean, I am amazed daily by nature’s beauty and diversity. It must have been so fun for the Lord to just let His imagination run wild when creating everything. 🙂
