Last bloomers

It’s an absolutely beautiful October day. I decided to photograph the last flowers blooming in the yard. A lot of insects got into the photo shoot.

    these photographs are just JOY!!!!!! so so Fine. Thank You so much for them….the Borage in particular, which didn’t happen this year and is
    just the most extraordinary plant….and could it be a katydid?

      It could be a katydid. I found a much larger one in the kitchen recently. I couldn’t get a good look at it. I have loads of borage every year. It self-seeds and grows into huge clumps.
