Back to flowers

Since the first killing frost has hit, the flowers are memories of summer past. This is a dahlia, first time I've had them bloom in my garden. I liked the flower and now need to protect the roots from freezing to see if I can get it to bloom again next year.

spider sat down beside her

It's October - time to be spooky. When I took in my house plants for the fall this spider came along with the staghorn fern. When I discovered her I gently but quickly removed her and her web to the outside, where I took some pictures. Whew! She is well camouflaged and quite big about a quarter in size.

painted ladies

Painted Lady butterflies are migrating through Denver area mid September. I have seen a lot of them about on my flowers. They are in the previous mandala and this cross.

butterfly in black and white

The photo club I belong to has competitions in color and black and white, so this is butterfly in black and white. Some pictures lend themselves to this others not so much.

Patterns, Patterns, patterns - the scalloped edges of the butterfly wings were wonderful repeated patterns.
