Reflection's Flora and Fauna
A collection of my photos of flora and fauna, and maybe now and then,
something else that catches my attention and just will not let go.
Maybe even with little verbage, which is pretty hard for this gal.

Hot Pinks and Purples, but, What am I?


From Son # 1's yard, perennial.  Believe it may be Amethyst Dream Bachelor's Button.  I found some at the nursery the other day, and bought it.  We have this new area in the yard where a bush died.  It will become part of what I am thinking of calling my Red Hatter's garden.  Yep, red and purples!

This is one of my favorite flowers. I have heard them called bachelor's buttons and cornflower but am not sure. Very nice photo!
