Today's Flowers: Wildflowers doing well as we near autumn

Photobucket

While walking on a trail near my house this Saturday, I was pleased at how well the wildflowers are doing.

This has been a good year for late summer and early fall flowers where I live. I think it's because we have had such a wet year.

Some years at the end of summer, in North Carolina where I live, everything is looking brown and parched. Above average rainfall this year has given a boost to many of the wildflowers.

The woods on the trail we walked on were filled with such a nice variety of flowers. The cooler mornings are giving me a boost and I'll have to try and walk regularly on the trails like I used to.

Even if I don't have the energy for a brisk walk, I can at least go on photo walks. Walk a few steps, take a photo, walk a few more steps . . . . The last shot is from my back yard. The fairy asters are bursting into bloom all over the place at my house.
