Mid-November

It's interesting that so many different ones were blossoming during October.
Comment from October's post.

Yeah... Middle Georgia is actually considered part of the sub-tropical south. We had our first frost last week, and there's still plenty of colour in the garden. I walked around with a camera today, in an attempt to record the mid-November garden...



To have butterflies, you need caterpillars.
Here's a coupla gulf frits.

The butterflies they eventually become.

Beautiful pictures. The kitty looks very happy! YUM! My poor kitties would probably love to be out catching grasshoppers, too.

The cat is positively photogenic.

I'm sure that there's enough grasshoppers for your cats too. Maybe you could catch them at mid-leap.
Dunno how people get that shot...
