  5. A wonderful take as we move into cooler weather - that and the header are a delightful splash to look at first thing in the morning!

  6. I love clematis while in bloom but it sure looks ugly when dying back for winter.

  15. You learned your lessons well. One of the first things they teach in a photography class is to shoot flowers at eye level, not looking down on them...

    Quite dramatic and great colors!
