    Just knowing those exist make me happy.

    That’s beautiful, and it really does look like an alien landscape. (Not that I actually know)

    Bestiality isn’t enough for Darwinists, now they’re breeding plants.

    Me fail English? That’s unpossible.

    Echinops are just cool. But it’s hard to grow in my area; too humid. I had a landscape client who really wanted that particular blue color (it’s usually enhanced in garden catalogs) for her garden. I was willing to try it but warned her. It didn’t make it through the summer.

    They look like viruses on stems.

    Those look like the photographic negative of our Earth flowers…

    Thistles are truly great, but Globe Thistles are the best of all.

    Seriously, man, if you have access to a starship, it’s time to share.

    I’ve got those in my garden. They’re pretty cool.

    Quite lovely, but the color looks a bit off as if it was shot through a filter to enhance the color. Reminds me of something out of Dr. Seuss.

    Reminds me of some of the scenery out of Rice Boy.

    My grandmother has those in her garden. Didn’t know they were special.

    They’re not special – just nice.

    Planet Photoshop perhaps?

    The flowers are real but that colour is not in nature.

    That color, and other intense blues, certainly do exist in nature. Try anchusa, some petunias, gentians, lobelia, etc. I personally like the blues of Himalayan poppies and good ol’ roadside chicory.

    The color looks real enough to me. The angle and lighting help enhance it, though. Echinops pictures.

    I… want to photoshop Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion flopping blissfully into that field.

    No, the colors are real. That’s what those things look like just before sunset. Trust me, I’ve got those plants in my garden.

    It’s reeeaally hard for me to see this as not altered in some way. The shininess and crispness of them looks out of place compared to the grass/trees, and it’s very unreal looking. almost like they were digitally rendered 3D objects pasted over the background or something.

    Though upon clicking the picture and seeing the full image it’s a bit more believable.

    But damn, if those really haven’t been altered past good photography, I need me some. Even if they look like they would die instantly.

    They really are lovely plants; in winter birds perch on the stems to eat the seeds. They never get all the seeds though, and you’ll have these beauties coming up everywhere the following year. Just be sure to pull the unwanted ones before they get big.
