Tuesday Fall Bulb Blooming

 
Colchicum 
This fall bulb bloomer puts on a fast show.  I don't know if it is the heat of the day or the cooler nights that prevents this pretty delicate bloomer from sticking around till October.  This image is my featured TUESDAY BLOOM for the week.

A few of my favorite foliage this week in the collage above. 




 To sum up today nothing says it better then this photo of my dear Calico  Betty.   I snapped this shot as she napped on my bedroom deck this afternoon during the warmest point of the day.  Seems the 80* sunny afternoon didn't bother sweet Betty as much as me crawling on my belly to get this shot of her with my macro lens. 

Good Day Friends!

Odette I had a low fever while snapping those photos. They were right outside my bedroom deck so I didn't have to put too much energy into that posting. Wordless Wednesday today - I am feel a little better. NO fever thank God!

Thank you all for your kind words. :-) Keep sharing your wonderful blooms!
