Westfield, NC (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: These dainty wildflowers, Commelina communis, naturalized in my garden, are enjoying a resurgence of blooming in the cooler, wetter autumn weather we've been having lately. Each petal is the size of a fingernail.

Thanks, Maxine! I like to shoot at dusk when the light is poor; it makes the colors so much deeper with less post-camera enhancement.

Thanks for your comments, Wanda; this is one of my favorite types of flowers. I've planted them wherever I've lived since I started college, nearly 50 years now.

Thanks for commenting, Jen! The clematis made a weak show, but the honeysuckles are going great guns -- I sometimes bring a sprig or two into the house, they smell so nice. We also have fruit trees and azaleas putting out a few blossoms.

Beautiful blue petals - mine have bloomed again too, along with the honeysuckle and early clematis. Any of your others having a second life this year?
