My favorite fireworks are the big umbrella-shaped ones that fill the sky with long arching trails of color that end in a starburst of light.
Last night we had quite a bit of natural fireworks for several hours in the form of a much-needed storm with lots of lightning and thunder. This morning the raindrops still sit on the tips of the long rays of the leek flowers, glistening in the morning sun.
These leek flowers have always made me think of my favorite fireworks, the big umbrellas of stars with the streamers inside.
Of course, the bees could create fireworks of another sort if they weren’t so concerned with the flowers.
