Everyday Lovelies

I didn't bother trying to look up this flower, since I'm fairly confident this is just a roadside patch of naturalized perennials. The little reddish discs really caught my eye, though.
I rode my bike about a mile to a little park in the middle of the harbor to watch the fireworks. It was a decent enough show. I had to dodge ground fireworks that people were putting off all along the sides of the streets as I happily whizzed by the cars waiting their turn to get out. It made me think of a mine field:

Cannon to right of them,

Cannon to left of them,

Cannon behind them

Volley'd and thunder'd;

Think about Independence.
