Today's Flower's # 60

My friend Luiz from Brazil does the Today's Flowers Meme, check it out. Come and join with your flower photos. Sunday at 2 GMT is the post time.

We had our first frost this week but it didn't come near my flower beds. Here is another look at the Dahlias. This was an unusual looking bug on the flower.
This dark red one was putting out a lot of blossoms.
Here is a lighter red one that had a great flower.

You can see a lot of great flowers above.

They are beautiful Tom. Those beetles can be very destructive on flowers.

Your Dahlias are still very pretty FG! Enlarging the first one made a huge difference. The bee and the unexpected ant were great captures.
You are ahead of us. We haven't had frost yet thank goodness.
