Gorgeous photos! I don't know the names of all the flowers... What are the names of the last yellow and the light purple in the middle? Very beautiful indeed. Wishing you bright and sunny autumn days!

Wow, what a feast of flowers, and some must be native for I haven't seen them around here. The caterpillars are stunning too!

It's always a joy to view your pictures. Lovely assortment of flowers. We are preparing a "butterfly" garden - host plants for Monarchs as it is spring here in Georgia. Hope you enjoy the rest of the week.
