    Oh yes…..I can just see him! Beautiful colour and comp here Chrissy, I love these Coneflowers but we don’t really see much of them here, think I’m going to have to hunt me some down… LOL:-))

  • Thank you, Lynda! I didn’t see the little spider until I uploaded the pictures, ….surprise!!! Most of the flowers around here are pretty blemished as this one was spotted up a bit, but still pretty in my eyes. As always, I appreciate your kind comments!

    Beautiful work Chris!!! Love it… with the teeeeny spider.. it was COLD here overnite… Is your garden almost done? you prob have a longer growing season than we do… I love shooting at Garden Centers.. xxxxx :))))) Fav my friend…

  • It is getting colder here, too, a front has moved in and put a little bite in the air, but we will be back to moderate temps in a few days. Most of the flowers are pretty far gone around here, this was taken up in the mountains. Thank you for visiting and for the fave,too! I hope all is well in your part of the country….
