Today's Flowers: Blooms, berries, seeds and leaves

My hydrangea bushes didn't flower very well this summer but I did have a few blooms that are changing colors as they fade into fall.


I photographed a lot of flowers in different stages during lunch break walks in Durham, NC this week.


We had some perfect days during the week.


Not too hot, not too cold, just right . . .


I am enjoying being able to walk most days.


I don't handle heat very well so summer is my least favorite time to walk.


This past summer was a mild one so I was able to get out more than most summers.


I'm still glad to be heading into cool weather.


The last shot is obviously not flowers but fall leaves are starting to be a bright spot although we have a way to go for peak season.

A nice collection of photos! I love the colors in your hydrandgea. I don't enjoy extreme heat either but this summer wasn't too bad. Hope you are enjoying the autumn!

Another great series of photos Carver. I am not good in heat or humidity but you're right, it hasn't been that bad this summer. I am still loving the Fall weather though. Thank you for sharing and wishing you a very happy weekend.

Such beautiful Fall colors. I'm getting afraid we might not see much red. it's been so warm here I'm afraid they won't turn before they fall. So thank you for showing yours!

Hydrangeas are pretty at all stages.

Lots of pretty flowers still to be seen on your walk. I look wistfully at the pretty lavender asters because all my asters died a couple of years ago and the ones I bought last fall, blooming, didn't come back this year. I grew some from seed so I hope they bloom next year.

My hydrangeas took a real hit from the winter. They came back, but no flowers, and they're my summer favorite.

I agree, fall weather is so much nicer than summer weather for walks. I like your last photo the best. The color contrast is very pretty.

A wonderful time for walks (when not too wet) :-)
