Leaves
These aren't flowers, of course. But they are the color that is on offer in this part of Connecticut right now. We had frosty temperatures sent shivers up our few remaining flowers. Won't be long before the color season is over.

  22. That first one has such an unusual perspective. It almost looks like a large canvas sitting above the ground. Frost warning here last night too. The plants which go outside to enjoy the summer air came back indoors until spring.. sigh!
