Thanks for the compliments everyone :)

Hywel- So glad to hear this one reseeds itself. After the flower dries it makes a seed pod, is that right and pops? It's got a few dried flowers on it so I'll wait and see what happens. I read that it can take cold weather, is that right? It's been in the high 20's at the coldest here. I have it inside, but I better put it out so it can make me some more :) The flowers are a bit small, but beautiful :)

So true Dave, what you said about not looking close enough. Our brain's are on auto-pilot, been there seen that mode. Most people are in such a hurry, working and rasing chiildren, etc; that there's no time (or so we think) to appreciate the small beautiful things in life. It's too bad because there's beauty all around us. We just have to take the time to really have a good look :) Reminds me of a song by Jack Johnson. Lyrics:

Inaudible Melodies - Jack Johnson

Brushfire fairytales
Itsy bitsy diamond wells
Big fat hurricanes
Yellow bellied given names
Well shortcuts can slow you down
And in the end we're bound
To rebound off of we

Well dust off your thinking caps
Solar powered plastic plants
Pretty pictures of things we ate
We are only what we hate
But in the long run we have found
Silent films are full of sound
Inaudibly free

Slow down everyone
You're moving too fast
Frames can't catch you when
You're moving like that

Inaudible melodies
Serve narrational strategies
Unobtrusive tones
Help to notice nothing but the zone
Of visual relevancy
Frame-lines tell me what to see
Chopping like an axe

Or maybe Eisenstein should just relax

Slow down everyone
You're moving too fast
Frames can't catch you when
You're moving like that

Well Plato's cave is full of freaks
Demanding refunds for the things they've seen
I wish they could believe
In all the things that never made the screen
And just slow down everyone
You're moving too fast
Frames can't catch you when
You're moving like that
Slow down everyone
You're moving too fast
Frames can't catch you when
You're moving like that
Moving Too....
