Ontario, Canada

Visiting grandboys.
A walk around the neighborhood.
Day before Halloween.

Flowers above were growing in the drainage area next to the road
Orange flower was hard to photograph,
camera kept focusing on background.
It resembled a statice flower.

I saw a variety of hydrangeas.
They looked pretty even after the flowers die.
*  *  *

Geraniums – saw them at multiple houses.
One lady told me she already took cuttings for next year’s flowers.
*  *  *

Lychnis and pink Candytuft.
I’ve never seen Candytuft in pink.
An older woman told me she brought the seeds from Germany,
many years ago.  It freely reseeds now.

It was a well-kept yard that we found the mushrooms.
