Today's Flowers: Walking around the block in my neighborhood

There's still a lot in bloom in my neighborhood so I decided to shoot some of the flowers as I walked around with my camera in hand.

Photobucket

The first shot looks more like spring to me even though I took the photo on the first day of October. The second shot has a more seasonal feel and is what I associate with early fall. However, the grass is mighty green for this time of year.

I love the color of the pretty flower. I Hope the greens will not fade. I haven't seen autumn yet:).
Great captures!
Have a great week ahead.

Two lovely photographs. The second shows a really well put-together garden. They definitely must have the green thumb. Thanks for sharing and have a great week.

Love that first one Carver - lovely light!
I like the second for the dappled shadows.
Sad to say my lawn is very dull already.

That particular Camellia usually flowers in the autumn to provide a memory of spring.

Lovely neighborhood, and the house is cute. I see a hint of autumn, the orange flowers!

I love those blossoms!
And that house looks really cozy!

It does like spring, doesn't it? Usually, you can tell a fall photo because the quality of the light is different - the way that fall casts shadows and the way the light has a golden glow. That photo doesn't . . . interesting!

Is this your house? Very lovely.

pretty little garden!

Carver said...

Thanks to everyone for visiting and to answer questions, no, that's not my house. I live around the corner on a hill lot which I like because it's bigger and I have huge trees in the front (shade garden) and then more of a sun garden in the back.
