I've finally started seeing some hummingbirds and butterflies but they've been too quick for me to capture with my camera.
The fairy asters (shot above) bloomed early this year, they're usually a fall flowers here.
The echinacea is looking pretty ragged (above) but hanging tough. I got up close and personal with the crepe myrtle bloom below.
Rose of Sharon is a very heat resistant flower.
It's nice to have some flowers since so many have turned brown this summer.
The bees are appreciative of the few flowers to feed on.
Today's Flowers will be returning in two weeks.
