12/18/10 – Featured in the GEMS GONE UNNOTICED Group.

I found this little knapweed (Centaurea nigra) flower in my grandson’s backyard. I thought the contrast with the dead maple leaves emphasized the change from Summer to Autumn.

Photo taken in October, 2010 with the macro lens of a Kodak EasyShare Z712 IS camera.

    Fall is definitely coming fast – such a pretty little flower!

  • Thanks, Shulie! I don’t mind Autumn coming fast. What I worry about is that it seems to be going fast too. It has been getting down to thirty degrees at night here.

  • Thank you so much, Deborah! This has been one of my favorites and it has languished, unnoticed, for months. It blesses me to see it featured.
