Hey, I was here first

I am trying to come back (kind of) after a year from hell: my husband’s illness, the death of our beloved cat Jessica, horrible vacation in Bermuda, etc. Time to come back to the beautiful world of BP. I still managed to photograph some flowers in my neighborhood. This is an October dahlia with 2 visitors competing for the last drops of nectar.
