Flowers from the past season

We are not desperate yet, but soon will be. The flowers in the pictures will be much missed. That is why I want to post this montage with the first flowers I photographed this past season. I don't know if it was only my personal impression, but it seems this year the spectrum of flowers planted in the Lansing area was quite reduced. The Spring was late, and when it came it only lasted for a week. The magnolias which are coming up early and linger for a few weeks, last season did not last for more than a couple of days. It was not even a full week.

However, the flowers that stayed with us during the Summer and Fall were very colorful and they gave a nice look to the city.

Here are some of the ones I stopped to photograph. I still have plenty.

When you say 'you stopped to photograph' does that mean these are not from your garden? I liked that red rose in full bloom. I too had one like that but now that plant does not yield the way it did. I can say my garden of the good old days did have great things. I am hellbent on bringing back what it once was.

No, it is not my garden.

Those are so pretty especially the roses. Roses (any color) are my favorite flowers. All those flowers above brings a smile to my face.

It was in a garden I am passing by every day I go out. I have plenty of roses.

Magnolias drop a lot of them. Thank you!

What a wonderful array of colors, textures and variety of blooms. Shared to social media to spread the joy.

A very pretty collection of flowers you have there. Sorry they will be gone soon.

I'm afraid we will see less and less color in the next few months. I don't have much color left in my garden, either. I wish you had named more of the plants.
