Oceans of petals gently lap manicured lawns. Nodding and dancing to an unseen conductor.

Plump blossoms ripple and dip. Deep purple, red and white stripe, foamy pink, blinding yellow, rich tangerine, shy crimson and pearly white.

Soft sunlight catches their opalescence as they shimmer and sway.

Some in pots, some in beds. All waving merrily. Stretching to the sky.
