My annual search for European Spindle found this interesting conjoined pair with one berry, looking like a butterfly of sorts.

Escape to Autumn © Lynn Wiles 2020
I took yesterday off to do some errands and then see autumn and be by water. Mission accomplished. We are not quite at peak season yet, but getting there.

Euphorbia Up Close © Lynn Wiles 2020
I don’t like living in an urban heat island in the summer, but it is nice this time of year when we experience frost later than the outlying areas and the garden is still in bloom. Meanwhile, I had to go through seven revisions with the new and old wordpress editors to get this to look consistent with the other posts on this site. sigh.

These decidedly purple flowers are from a butterfly bush called Buzz Sky Blue. I find that most flowers called blue are actually purple. Hmmm.

Curly Stamens © Lynn Wiles 2020
One lone chicory flower in the grass after the season has passed. Love the curly stamens, hairy petal edges and pollen waiting for the bees.
