…in Arizona aren’t the same as in other parts of the US. Yes, there are yellows and reds but not in the leaves generally, at least in the desert part of the state. But the beauty is real as you can see from these photos taken on my recent walk. I’m heading back to Illinois tomorrow (driving) so I’ll have a chance to see the “normal” colors of autumn (or fall as many of us call it.) I’ll get to see what October looks like in New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, and Illinois and then on the way back, November in the same states. Posting may be sporadic but the camera will be at work so eventually you’ll see what I see. In the meantime, be safe and have fun.

Not all flowers are large and showy or even found in the usual places. These little ones are a perfect example. Happy Friday!

As usual, I don’t know the name of this flower and despite the excellent signage at South Bay Botanic Garden, I didn’t see one for this flower. I’m sure one of you can tell me what it is, right? 🙂 Feel free to jump in with a name. But the light is as much the star of the show, making the two together more than the sum of their parts.

There are lots of flowers in this part of California and I see quite a few on my morning walks. Here’s one beauty that caught my attention.

There were quite a few of these in Wyoming this year and my PlantNet app identified them as Gunnison’s Mariposa Lily. I remember the name from the Black Canyon of the Gunnison in Colorado and Mariposa Gardens, the funeral home that handled my parents’ arrangements. But you can just call them beautiful.
