Red Magnolia in March
I saw this rose outside the upstairs window and took a picture because I thought the sun shining through it was so nice. Unfortunately, a hard freeze is forecast for tonight.

Red Rose in October
Asclepias still blooming on October 28. This is one that we picked up at Powell Gardens.

This is a cute couple at this white Zinnia in the third week of October.
I liked this pink and white color combination and thought it made a nice picture.

Yellow Asclepias in September
A honeybee finds nectar at these yellow asclepias that we brought home Powell Gardens on our recent visit.
This butterfly likes the Scentropia flowers in mid September. The Scentropia blooms have a very nice fragrance -- maybe a perfect fragrance for a flower.
