A Few Words

I took the camera out for a few moments today to snap some of the trees that are flowering. We are nearing the autumn… and its amazing how many plants are flowering at the end of the summer.  I also had to try out my new Logo/Copyright. My sister makes me one every year. Actually, I have a couple…. I’ll use a different one next time….

I don’t know the name of either tree with the purple/pink flowers. The are very interesting, though.

…belong to this tree. I’m thinking it doesn’t have too many pests.

The flowers look very much like Vinca flowers. Very simple four petal flowers.

These little blue flowers are about 1/2 inch across and become the small yellow seed pods in the next picture.yellow-pods

Next birds and bath time…

What an interesting spiky trunk. Wow. I am glad to see some of your recent photos. I can't say that I mind the mild (but wet) winter we've had -- and that we are headed to spring, not autumn. Any sewing going on?

I wonder if the first one is related to Hibiscus. Both flowers are pretty, and a bonus for late summer blooms.
