The bees were very busy around this large bush covered in small white flowers.
Humming away, they were industriously putting the finishing touches on their winter food stores.
Nature was very thoughtful to provide this late blooming source of late September nourishment.
I found this pretty flower bed in a park in Kelowna in early October.
Very ordinary flowers but lovely and fresh.
The ordinary things are often the best things.

A lovely plant with beautifully contrasting colours.
More hydrangeas, but I do like them …
… mountain hydrangeas are the least common hydrangea. These have much smaller flowers but the plants are extremely hardy and will survive harsh winters and climates.
And very pretty!
I found these beautifully unusual hydrangeas, blue and cream.
And on the same plant, a much more uniform blue, but with hints of lighter blue on some of the petals.
Hydrangeas are such lovely, interesting plants. 🙂
I loved this little red poppy when I saw it.
Vancouver is experiencing a drought right now and many of the plants are suffering, but this one was holding up well.
Happy mid-week. 🙂
These hibuscus are waning now, but are still pretty.
Happy Friday. 🙂
I found this wild lavender plant while out for a ramble.
It was scraggly and unkempt looking and growing next to a sage bush, but I could discern its familiar scent well before I saw it. Despite the heat and the smoke, it’s thriving in its little niche.
Happy Thursday. 🙂
