Here already we got the cold and snow to the mountains ..
Bright colors. I love the zinnia and the worm is very rare;))
Good Tuesdays.
Un beso.

I am so surprised by all the butterflies that were out and about.
Never seen so many.
My sage bushes have been none stop blooming this year. Not that I am complaining.

cheers, parsnip

I like seeing these warm images. Here in Breckenridge, it's snowed the past 2 days. We have about 10" on the ground so far. No butterflies or flowers for me! Keep your photos coming!

Our autumns seem to get warmer every year.

Gorgeous…I particularly love the contrast of the Mexican Yellow on Plumbago … Thanks for capturing what I can only watch from a distance. :-)

I saw a Dainty Sulphur recently but didn't know what it ws until someone ID'ed it for me. Don't you have flowers all summer long and even some butterflies? We do up here.

I love your collage of yellow blooms. It is amazing how late everything is staying around this year.
