Hithere! Glad you enjoyed them. I take an agoraphobic friend some lunch once a week, so I've started taking my camera with me lately. What a wild show! I hope everyone who would like to could be inspired to go find some wild things.

Realized I forgot any 'overall view' pics...

Wonderful pictures! Fall is a good time for wildflowers.

Here are a couple of pics I took the other day. I just haven't put together a list of names yet.

Not sure which Solidago this is with Callicarpa americana

Christine, life's too short for me to sort Solidagos, that's for sure. LOVE your pic, couldn't be more perfect if arranged by a pro florist. Don't those 2 make excellent companions!? You're right, there was a lull for a few weeks, then some rain, and POW, a whole new crop of wild fall beauties.

TY, Josephine! As long as you have time to capture (stop and smell?) some, the actual posting can happen any time, right?

Great wildflowers from Texas.
I think the white aster is known as a Heath Aster.

I sure do love seeing the gallardias!

and even more so the monarch butterflies! I haven't seen a single one here this entire year so far... it sure would be nice to see one!

Thanks, Josephine. Smiling I'm going to make a point to look for them! We've been getting some rain (much welcome rain) the last few days - it's raining now, a nice soaking rain but tomorrow it is supposed to clear up.

Saw these Monday... (and found some milkweed seeds!)

They were "almost blue" little cuties, Asters probably?
