I can’t complain about the nice Southern California weather, but it is getting harder to find flowers in bloom. In fact, yesterday, the park’s gardener was in the midst of cutting down the rose bushes to “winterize” them; I just took photos of them other day: California Roses.
I did find these plumbago flowers, which look like they’re at the end of their season; captured with my 300mm DSLR lens for Cee’s photo challenge – Flower of the Day (FOTD). I thought these flowers had an interesting pattern, even the parts that were not quite flowering. I tried to go macro, and I am also using them for Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge (CMMC) – Close-Up or Macro.
