Very nice. Sometimes when I'm looking at pictures like this I feel like I'm looking at fire works; "ooohhhhh, ahhhhhhh, eeee."

What a strange plant! Odd times throughout the year! I'll have to look this up, although I have a sneaking suspicion that it would not grow in wintery Upstate New York.

I did purple, too. I hope you have time to see! http://newyorktraveler.net/photo-hunters-purple/
