You have caught this at an interesting time when it is covered in raindrops!
Good sharp images and it doesn't surprise me that it is referred to as phlox of the cascades, as it is a cascade of bright colour!
I would certainly like this on my rockery!
Many thanks for your warm comments on 'Nervously Feeding!'

Well hello there Mr Shannon
How the devil have you been ? Have been busy as I see that you have. A pin sharp image you have served up here, lovely hairy stems and droplets of water that add up to another winner.

They look so beautiful with the water droplets. Very pretty flowers and such nice colors. They look wonderful with the dark green leaves and the dark background. You've gone from birds to flowers and these are just perfect.

A fine looking shrub with brightly lit lilac flowers in sharp focus, the contrast of the dark green leaves and the black BG form a good composition with a generous help from the water droplets, but for me, what makes this a unique capture is the presence of yet to open screw-like buds! Thank you Bob, for sharing this fine macro-scene with us.

Lovely image with great color, detail, DOF, and exposure.
The water droplets throughout look like you must've shot this right after a rain..Nice look :)

Very refreshing looking image Bob,
Makes me feel clean and rejuvenated just looking at it. The water droplets say it all, nothing makes you feel better then being outdoors after a nice steady rain shower.
Excellent sharpness, DOF and POV.

Bob, the feel of spring is very strong in this beautiful image of wild flowers.
I can imagine your sense of joy in seeing the nature re-generate itself in myriad forms after a long spell of winter.
You have selected the frame with an eye for the composition and it has turned out to be a superb image.
I love the color of these flowers.
Thanks and regards.

Someone, actually two people, kept insisting that the song was Money Money! by Abba and not Honey Honey!who's to tell them both are different songs by the same band! There was this singer, englebert Humperdinck(sorry if i spelt that wrong), he sang this wonderful song "Raindrops keep fallin' on my head" or something like it.wouldn't that be what these flowers's song, if they could sing?
Lovely shot, Bob!

Beauty, Bob. Just a nicely composed image of this lovely flower. I think the pattern shots works very well, yet it's still tight enough to see the details of the individual flower.

What a perfectly composed piece. Love the actual cascade of flowers. And the details are astounding. Beautiful droplets on the petals. Wonderful color and great contrast against the darker foliage. :)

I've seen these babies before but never knew what they were called. Nice capture and good presentation.
