Today's Flowers: photo walking in the neighborhood

I walked to a park in my neighborhood this Saturday and photographed the flowers on my way as well as the ones in the park.

The shot above was taken in the park and the shot below was taken in the neighborhood on the way there.

The next shot was one I took in the park of the zinnias which are doing fairly well.

Below is another shot of one of my neighbor's flowers. The light pink flowers in the front part of the shot are on a variety of azaleas which blooms twice a year, first in early spring and then in late summer and fall. I'm not sure what the flowers up against the house are although they look like a variety of bush roses.

The last shot is back at the park and you can see that the flowers on the right have gone to seed, one of the indicators that summer is slowly but surely ending.

Thank you for the walk! You have a beautiful neighborhood! And yes, here the summer is slowly ending too.

Carletta said...

Your park looks like it must be so pretty. :)
The one house sure has lots going on in the front yard. Certainly a lot to see along the meandering sidewalk.
Enjoy your walks Carver as summer is indeed waning and cold weather will be upon us.
Have a wonderful Sunday!

I've noticed the shrub roses all over Des Moines are going great guns all of a sudden. It's nice - they're so pretty. Looks like your neck of the woods is having the same explosion!
