Wonderful assortment, and all very well-photographed. The Mexican Sunflower is especially nice - great detail and wonderful background!

The flax does not look oversaturated to me...

I assume you are referring to the bokeh behind the California Sunflower (#1), and not the Mexican daisy (#10)? I especially like it, too. Easy to mix the names, as a sunflower is nothing more than a largeer daisy.

We have a lot of Nasturtiums - you can't get rid of them - they seed readily and hybridize freely, so there is an endless variety. The first one is an original pattern, the second one is one of the hybrids.
