We're finally seeing some color on the trees. This is in the center of town, across from the grocery store I use. It was a very dull, cloudy day today when I shot this, and it's pouring outside right now. The colors look so much brighter when the sky is bright blue. The hues and textures of the different tree species really caught my eye even without the benefit of great lighting.
Refusing to give up despite the cooler temperatures and shorter daylight period, the red and yellow Dahlia continues to open up new blossoms.
The newest dahlia, in pink and yellow, continues its maturation process. This is the prettiest it has yet been.
Two red vases illumined in the early afternoon light today. The "flower power" paperweight below them is a white river rock I painted when I was 10 years old. The bright yellow Mustang I Matchbox is to the right. I've managed to find a properly painted white version, with blue stripes as per the original, so I'm leaving this little car yellow with black stripes.
