This is a begonia I photographed at the botanical gardens in Ft. Bragg, CA.
This is a close-up shot of a dahlia.
This is a cactus blossom from the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens. They bloom for a short time every summer. I felt fortunate to be there when this was flowering.
Dahlias again. Taken at the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens.
These colorful flowers grace the roadsides on the coast of Northern California in late summer.
Insects can be as interesting and colorful of flowers. Here we have both.
