Worker Bee........


The newest dahlia bloom is having a bee visit it.  The bugs are sure enjoying the larger bloom so seeing this small honey bee was a great opportunity for me to get the picture.

Fall Reds.................



As I press leaves in books, I find that they don't keep this color.  They mature into a darker red color as they age in the pages of a book. The nicest orange red patterns leave and they all equal out as the same red color.

Late Bloomer.............



I bought two roses late in the season and both are now budded and will try to bloom one more time if the weather holds out.

The Sentry.........



The new corner in my backyard fence was a big change for Barney and he didn't quite know what to do with it.  Now it is his major spot  to watch people and dogs for by the spot.  He discovered it as a useful place to be while I spent time painting on the south side of the house. He stays out with me all the time that I am out there working so he was able to really check the corner out while a distant neighbor walks by with hare two very large dogs.  He  loves to see them and bark at them once they go by.

Red Maple........


It is a young tree that behaves differently every year.  This year the east side has changed color and the west side is still green.  I do think the red is a better richer color than in the past years.  We have one tree in town on main street that is pure bright orange and I think it is the only one like it in town.  I hope to get a shot of soon.

Blue...........


Creeping bluebell puts out one more stem of blooms.  All other plants are died back but this one seems to want to pretend that it is spring.

Sunny Saturday........


The Stella is putting out a couple of stalks of buds for one last time.  I am sure they will get frosted and frozen before it gets through opening up all the buds that are on the plant.
