I was working on a blog post last week and noticed a butterfly in the garden. I didn’t get outside fast enough to get a picture of it but is did notice that there were Cosmos still blooming that might provide some food for butterflies.
There was also some color left from summer: cockscomb (one being held by a dragon ornament in the garden)
The next morning I photographed another part of the yard. The red yucca seed pods are splitting. I hadn’t noticed how charred their seeds look when I’d photographed them on previous visits.
There is a mound of mums near a rock in the garden – a patch of orange on a cloudy morning.
