These are Anemone flowers 'Bressingham Glow', blooming in my yard now...a signal that Fall is here. The little bee was a bonus!

    Beautiful!! I wish I had a "green thumb" instead of a black one. Plants hate me.

Beautiful vertical comp - this trio really sings "Autumn" - remember these growing in my mother's garden - and every autumn they heralded in the season. Wish I could get them to grow here in Central TX. Gorgeously presented - a beautiful shot.
