Our crape myrtles begin blooming during summer an continue to do so through the fall. I photographed a few of their very first blossoms a couple of days ago. The flowers are gorgeous.
The sunflowers planted in our garden are doing well. None of them have opened yet, but they will do so soon. Although the colorful red sunflower in this photo still immature, it is already beautiful.
I found this beetle exploring a blackberry flower when I was out taking photos. From this angle it looks like he’s smelling the blossom.
Yesterday afternoon I captured one of my best clover shots ever. Half of its pedals were dead, but the other half were still standing strong. Clovers are beautiful flowers, but you can’t really see their beauty until you look at them up close.
I captured this dandelion growing in the shade of our backyard hedge. It looks so bright and radiant with that beautiful yellow in contrast with the dark shade of the hedge. That blurred yellow spot in the background is a second dandelion.
As I was walking around the lawn yesterday, I discovered this beautiful wildflower growing near our pine trees. I’ve never seen a flower like this before. Its shape closely resembles a star!
Our honey suckle vine is now producing brilliant red flowers. The ruby throat humming birds and the bees love them. The bunch in the photo above will open soon.
