Thank you Karen and Leslie! Yes, they're like little tiny fireworks displays. You have to look closely at them, but when you do, you are rewarded.

Here're two without the rain. These buds are just beginning to open.

Joanna, very cool banner!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Oh! You'll LOVE it! I've read that monarch and other butterflies love it but they didn't exactly flock to mine. They reseed like crazy too! And their roots hardly take up any room. Here're some of my favorite dill pictures, particularly the one of dill growing within the shelter of some young Mexican Sunflowers. For some reason, I find that one very calming.

Each time I see a banner, I play a game with myself and try to identify it without looking at the answer. You stumped me completely! Rolling on the floor laughing I have grown dill and have seen the flowers, but looking at the banner, no, could not figure it out. Great photo! Keep up the good work. Hurray!

Thank you so much! I always try to photograph things in a way that both appreciates the plant and presents a closer view that one might not ordinarily see. I think it was the rain that made this one different.

I have two more banners coming up in November. Hope you'll like them too. Lovey dubby
