blue mist, cows, halo of stamens

When you look long enough at the dense blue flowers of the ceonothus in bloom just now in people's gardens, a blue mist seems to grow round the shrub almost like steam.

Cows grazing in a field all face in the same direction.

The slight yellow poppies which I put in a vase a few days ago have shed their petals and leave a halo of gold-tipped stamens clustered round the green ovary.
