Baby, You're A Firework

"Fun weed balls!"

The drawings are wonderful as usual. But I think this might be my very favorite example of Amy Jean Porter's "Writings in a Hurry" yet.

"Bursty flickery fade-fade-fade…"

Now that's I've read through the whole post it is lovely. But the first lilly triggered a PTSD reaction in me, i.e. OH GOD IT'S A GEORGIA O`KEEFE EXHIBIT WHERE DO I RUN TO??
Going to college in the 70's left its scars, I tell you.

I looove this post. Every 4th of July my daughter and I cut a bouquet that's supposed to evoke fireworks. We always pick red bee balms, white Shasta daisies, and blue(ish) butterfly bush, filled in with whatever else might seem patriotic and firework-y.
