October Flowers

As I prepare myself for roughly four months of grey, dreary outdoor shots, here are a ridiculous number of flower shots from the Overland Park Arboretum and Lake Lenexa while there is still color outside.

What do you think?  Do you have a favorite below?

October Flower Photo #1.  Some sort of black-eyed susan type of flower at the Arboretum.

October Flower Photo #2.  I don’t know what these tiny, white and pink flowers are called, but they are everywhere in the woods right now and are absolutely beautiful.  In a weird way that I can’t really articulate, they remind me a bit of the edelweiss flower that grows in the Alps, but not fuzzy and with a pink center.

 

October Flower Photo #3.  A prickly pear cactus at Lake Lenexa.

October Flower Photo #4.  One of those yellow ladybug-looking bugs on some goldenrod by Lake Lenexa.

October Flower Photo #5.  A red berry growing by Lake Lenexa.  In trying to identify these berries, I only found others who had shot them and stated that they couldn’t determine what they were.

October Flower Photo #6.  Yellow flowers just in front of Lake Lenexa.
