isn't that a sweet surprise? we were in the
mountains, where it is almost winter, and i
spied a pretty white flower blooming.

simply perfect

Judy said...

Pretty flowers, I don't believe I have ever seen these before.

maccandace said...

We're pondering fall here, too, and that's probably as close as we will get. Those flowers actually look a little familiar to me but I don't know what they are either.

a fall blossoming surprise! i've never seen these. they look like little stars.

Joan Elizabeth said...

Ah I see your surprise flower ... what an attractive plant.

Tracy said...

Sooo lovely... It has an almost lace-like quality! Do you know the name of this flower, Elk? I can't quite place it at a glance... I love white flowers--they just "pop" in the garden, and hence all the other colors around them. Happy Day, my friend :o) ((HUGS))

I love white flowers. T Hey look so crisp. I always wanted a moon garden - all white flowers. It is supposed to look lovely in the moon light.

These are so milky white I love that their name reflects this. I am surprised at the flowers I see hanging on around here, the cold weather has not frighten them away yet.

Mom, we have those flowers -all- over Mo. I've been watching Monarchs land on them for a few weeks now, wondering whether they were Milkweed or not. How fun to find them here on your page as well. : )
