Great banner Cal!
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.

Many thanks for all the nice comments, thumbs, and acorns! Smiling

I couldn't find the original image (from 2017), but here are some pics of the same bloom on a different day.
