These guys survived an ice storm that toppled great, big tree branches. And various wind storms, and rain, and etc. Weeds are tough ;-) These are wild asters in my yard in the morning sun. The ones in the background made great bokeh.

Lovely image, enhanced by the bokeh. A lot of space in the background, but that's an artistic choice.

Lovely colors, bokeh is very pretty, flowers are nicely delicate - I wish they were sharper, though. Voted earlier; back to comment.
