Great detial in this shot! Are they fading away already? They are at their peak here at the least those that have been planted around the city.

@bluechameleon: It kind of depends on what you mean by peak. The outer yellow flower petals have dried and faded away. However, the inner flowers that develop over the individual seeds are still present (Here). Eventually, these will dry and fall off revealing the "seeds". So, I guess you could say that these flowers have "peaked". Thanks for your comment Sharon!
