Today's Flowers: museum and doctors

It was interesting to me to see that the planters outside one of my doctor's office buildings had completely different flowers than the last time I was there.
I suspect the others got hit by our early summer drought and were replaced. Now we have more than enough rain so these should last until a hard frost.
The pool in the NC art museum garden had a water lily blooming.
I almost missed it because there was only 1 or maybe 2 blooms.
The NCMA has a ton of yellow rose bushes but they are mostly finished blooming.
There is still a lot of yellow but there are more petals on the ground than on the bush.
One more shot because I couldn't decide which to use.

It's amazing because flowers are still blooming even if it's fall already same as here in my area too. Great shots!

Glad you've got lots of rain now, Carver! We're still experiencing drought here in Houston. Praying for rain! :)

The waterlilies here have finished blooming so it was nice to see some still blooming there.

Love all of them, but the water lily is my absolute favorite.
