Ironweed shows up in late summer. When the purple shows up, I know we are on the backside of summer. It is a butterfly magnet.

A little detail about this beautiful plant:

“Standing 4 to 6 feet tall at maturity, ironweed boasts a big garden presence when it begins blooming in late summer. That's because clusters of bright purple flowers decorate its tall stems for 6 weeks or more at the end of the growing season. Ironweed received its common name from its ironlike qualities: tough stems, tenacious growing habit, and flowers that give way to seed clusters the color of rust.” Source: Ironweed

If you live near a pond or river, and near some grassland, you should get out and see the beautiful colors ... to take a walk, and take your camera. Enjoy!

Flowers by Mother Nature

I wanted to share some of the flowers and foliage that we have seen this past few weeks. I love the colors that nature provides. If you take the time to observe, the colors will amaze you!

Bees in Heaven

So, lets say you are the bees in the 1st photo, and you see the site in photo 2. I can close my eyes and hear the conversation: You turn to your buddy (you can see him in the 1st photo, flying off to the left), and say something like, “I’m in flower heaven”. The bees have been so active this week. Life is good for these dudes.

A Rose, is a ..

On our last day in Utah, I took a morning walk to catch some exercise before our long flight east. This rose totally captured my attention. You can see the dew on the petals .. what a special treat.
