It is late summer transitioning to fall, which means fewer blossoms on plants.
It makes one appreciate even more the beauty of every flower, their color, shape and texture.
For example the nasturtium in the photo above.
It literally glows in the afternoon light.
At our former home, nasturtiums seeded themselves throughout the front and back yards.
They covered every empty patch of dirt and wood chips between plants.
When we brought our potted plants to our new location, we weren't sure if there were nasturtium seed pods hidden in the various pots.
Sure enough, they are here, spreading their loveliness around the patio, much to the delight of the hummingbirds and bees, who feed on the nectar.
