And in your color scheme, as well! Do you see Pasque flowers growing wild anywhere around you? Supposedly they're circumpolar at temperate latitudes.

Yes, there are some growing wild here, but they are relatively rare. They are called backsippa (plural: backsippor) here.

Lovely tulips and irises, Orin!

And the Stars of Bethlehem really are like stars (never mind that real stars are round, elliptically elongated or blob-like, but never hexagonal)! :wink: :D

Who cares, the Stars of Bethlehem are lovely! :D 🌼

They're just stars imaged with a telescope carrying a three-arm secondary.
