Summer blooms

I am constantly amazed at the complexity and variety of architecture in flowers. The summer is fully on at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and today I loved seeing the Filipendula border exploding with sprays of tiny flowers. The Chinese ground orchid (Bletilla striata) and the Campanula takesimana were also wonderful to behold, each so distinctive in their forms, but all examples of the wondrous ways evolution has finessed these flowers to one single end – to encourage pollination.
