I'm having trouble remembering the name of that first flower, probably because I can't remember exactly what the flower itself looks like. I love the seed pods from this plant, though. I have bunches of them in old, glass bottles on my kitchen hearth. I also love how you desaturated that photo, leaving just enough of the color. All of these are beautiful.
Jenni -- The first flower is a really nasty weed--velvetweed! It's a beautiful flower and the leaves are velvety soft. Unfortunately, it also takes over, has deep roots, and becomes a problem harder to deal with than the economy. And even though my neighbors will think I've gone daffy, I have to admit I kinda like the damn thing.
