While I was out on a walk with my boys we found some lovely yellow chrysanthemums in our neighborhood. As an added bonus there was a yellow jacket sitting on one of the flowers! He appeared a little worse for wear, as he is missing an antenna and made no effort to fly away even when I got in close.
I admit that this prompt had me stumped! Luckily my son loves to do puzzles, and while he was connecting the pieces, I made the connection to this prompt and got out my camera.
I also took these pictures while walking with my boys. There were tons of bees buzzing all over these little flowers! They were all very busy collecting nectar and pollen to get ready for the coming winter.
This week as I have walked my boys to school, I have been checking out all the pretty flowers that are blooming locally. My flower beds are usually bare in the Fall, so I have essentially been "shopping" for flowers I would like to plant. I loved these bright little flowers the moment I saw them. They are called Firewagon flowers and the only drawback is that they are annuals, so I would have to replant them every year.
Originally I planned to use my "bright" photo for this prompt. But then this afternoon we were planting some fall mums that we bought today and I spotted a teeny tiny ladybug crawling around on the stems. I had to run into the house and grab my camera so I could get a picture before he flew away!
