Oh my goodness...what incredible beauty!! What's sad is I'm envious...our yard was a virtual desert this summer with the drought. But, I got to enjoy your sensational colors.

Nice collection. I like the theme here with photos 2 and 6 being my favourite within that subject.

Beautiful last gasp! Its really cool that many of those flowers are in the Autumn color pallette! Just so perfect for this kind of in-between time. (At least it is for me, I'm not quite ready for Autumn yet!)
