A few weeks ago, just before the weather started to turn towards Fall, I decided to drag one of my favorite photo props, my wicker and bamboo bike, out to the backyard for a handful of photos while enjoying the last few days of warm weather. To brighten things up amidst all the green, I added a few flowers with an Autumnish feel…pink, orange and red zinnias, as well as some big ole sunflowers.
As much as I love the change of seasons, I sure am going to miss all the beautiful foliage and flowers. They’re so perfect for photographs. Starting with this bunch of flowers, I’m once again making visits to the florist to buy flowers, rather than photographing the nature found in my own yard.
Hope you’re all having a good week so far!
Chat later ♥ Tricia

Those flowers are gorgeous – and the bike is certainly a fabulous photo prop!
Thanks for the comment about my little tart pans. Isn't it funny how we can obsess about some little thing we see in blog land. That's how I felt when I first saw your little antropology bowls!
Stunning! Really stunning! All your shots are a real feast for the eyes, Tricia! Amazing colors and I love your wicker and bamboo bike! 🙂
