Surprise

I didn't find vibrant colours, as I had hoped for last week, nor did anything black and white inspire me, but I found a little surprise on my balcony!

Despite the cold temperatures and the lack of sunshine, this cornflower decided to bloom in November, which is really not typical for cornflowers (at least not in my corner of the world)... and so I thought this brave little warrior deserves some spotlight here...

Have a wonderful week everyone and perhaps a nice little surprise, too!

I'm assuming that our Bachelor Buttons are in the same family....they grow wild, but only during warm weather. My little Pincushion flower still has a bloom or two on it, but it was 17 degrees F this morning, so there isn't going to be much left above ground!

What a sweet little brave beautiful warrior you have!! Hope you enjoyed her while she lasted. My flowers have all disappeared due to the hard freezes we have had lately!!
