While working on various projects around the Red Dog Estate, I noticed that this flower was blooming in a heart shape. This has happened several times this past summer.
This Fall is the first time that this Chrysanthemum has bloomed since it was planted several years ago. I almost pulled it out when I noticed that it actually had buds. I patiently waited several weeks to see what would happen. The Bees have been enjoying the blooms. The Hummingbird feeder is close by which is very popular with many birds in the neighborhood. At one point there were five Hummingbirds squabbling over ownership. The one below sits in the Modesto Ash tree watching the activity.
I started using an iPhone several months ago and I was surprised that the zoom captured a decent image of this Hummingbird.
