What a simple, but unusual shot for a banner. Shows different stages of flower development, and fine enough to see the fuzz on the surface of the flowers and stems. Maybe even a dandelion seed Smiling stuck on the stem?

Thank you!
Hah--
yeah, there is always some bit of fluff stuck everywhere it seems Rolling my eyes.
another look

This is one of my most durable penstemons--wish they were all so happy.
It does, however, rampantly seed itself all over the place, such that not every penstemon is sacred. Still, though, there are way worse weeds.
