These flowers are just so grand to me - huge pink flowerheads growing on such long stalks - everything about them seems over-the-top.. This particular one was found at Zilker Botanical Gardens in Austin, TX, along with about 100 others! It was growing in full sun and stood heads above the others. Really seemed to stretch out as far as it could to soak up as much of that radiant, glorious light as possible...
