The orange trumpet vine along my backyard fence (also shown here and here) has one last bloom remaining at the very top. All the others have turned into big, heavy seed pods hanging down above the grass. Hummingbirds love these flowers, and I took a quick picture with my phone camera on a gorgeously blue morning, to mark the end of the season.

  1. Wonderful shot 🙂 The blue of the sky is STUNNING!

    • Thanks much! To be honest, I felt self-conscious about posting it at first because so many bloggers take better photos and it’s a bit out of focus. But then I told myself there’s no need to be a perfectionist about it!

  2. Hanging on to make a statement of perseverance! I love the beginnings of Autumn!
    Thank you for sharing with Nurturing Thursday! <3

  3. That is a beautiful end-of-season flower! Thank you for the wish of something beautiful this week, so welcome 🙂

  4. Hi Meg, gorgeous flower, I’m trying to capture the last beauties of summer around here too. Have a great weekend!
