Wednesday, October 12

Fall has finally come to Oklahoma, and the weather is divine. The forecast from Intellicast this morning was for scattered thunderstorms. Intellicast blew it. We had brilliant blue skies, a nice breeze and warm sunshine. Just perfect for a day at Swan Lake and Linnaeus Teaching Gardens. It was hard to pick just twelve keepers this month, but I did it. Here's what I saw, and forgive me if I don't know the names of the flowers.

A Swan at Swan Lake - 10:48 a.m.

Purple flowers in beautiful light - 11:02 a.m.

Orange flowers - 11:05 a.m.

Maybe Milkweed (?) - 11:07 a.m.

More purple and orange flowers - 11:26 a.m.

Another swan at Swan Lake - 11:33 a.m.

Barrel Cactus at Linnaeus Teaching Gardens - 11:45 a.m.

Purple and green looking good together - 11:59 a.m.

There's a Monarch Butterfly in this picture - 12:00 p.m.

I don't have a clue what these are, but they were
really striking against the green grass - 12:02 p.m.

This picture just made me smile - 12:03 p.m.

Water Lily - 12:08 p.m.

I know I bombarded you with flowers this month, but I'm hoping they'll tide you (and me) over during the darker months to come. I do best when the sun shines, so I'll be coming back here often to remind myself of this beautiful fall day. Hope to see you next month.

Oh, the flowers! I know what you mean - hold on to the warmer temps a little longer. Your photos are beautiful, as they are every month.

Thanks for sharing them!

This was such a fun day, and you have posted a beautiful set. Looking forward to tomorrow in the Tall Grass as well. You're fun to shoot with, Sunny. Sure am glad you moved west...
