Although autumn is quickly approaching with its neutral color palette, there are still pink, white, and purple flowers adorning the prairie, such as this echinacea/purple coneflower.  Soon there will be brightly colored leaves, but for now, we’ll enjoy the last of the summer flowers.

    Beautifully Written… Great Post ❤

    There are still plenty of colours to catch here too, and the leaves are beginning to change colours aswell. I enjoy autumn for that reason, and I think there is beauty in flowers different stages of withering. Your image is a great example of that!

    • I agree, Lena. I take lots of photos of withered and dead flowers and plants. Here only a few leaves on bushes are starting to change colors, so I’m reveling in the summer beauty while I can. I love autumn as well and winter, too. They’re all beautiful in their own ways.

    There’s something special about the flowers that last until the frost. I agree that each season is beautiful.

    Love your coneflower. Nice editing, too.

  9. This week, little birds, like magnets, were drawn to these flowers in my garden!

    Nice photo and editing, Janet.

    • Thanks, Allan. I’m starting to use Pixlr on my iPad (can’t stand to attempt editing on my little phone). I know I can use it on my laptop, but haven’t gotten around to figuring out how yet. 🙂 Story of my editing life.

        I hear you. There always seems to be a new “latest, greatest” editing app that is better than anything else out there.

        I have found that it is easier for me to find one and get comfortable with it, before moving on. Most of the time the features are similar in use, but with different titles.

  11. The colours are stunning. I’m sure someone told me (when a teenager) never to wear pink and red together – they forgot to tell Mother Nature! I love the aged treatment you gave the image.

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
