You Capture: Flowers

Photobucket

At this time of year in southeastern Wisconsin, the flowers are dwindling. But I found some that are hanging on, hanging on for dear life, to the wonderful summer that is now past, hoping to be able to stick around for some of fall, which is now upon us.

My mom has these beautiful Japanese anemones in her front garden, and I just love them. It’s so nice to see the pink color amid the changing leaves and deeper colors of mums everywhere.

My mom also has the most amazing lavender plants that have just rebloomed. They smell amazing, and they attract giant bumblebees that buzz around happily, flitting from bloom to bloom.

These snapdragons aren’t supposed to be perennials, but they were planted either last year or the year before, and they’ve made it through our summer and are still there!

I love my shrub roses, mostly for the ease of care. I basically do nothing for them, except for some pruning. They’ve been around all summer, too.

And here’s another angle of my shrub roses, which earned the honor of “Photo of the Day” on The Maternal Lens. (I’m still patting myself on the back!)

Enjoy more shots of flowers from all different climates over at Beth’s.
