|These pink roses might seem to belong to spring or summer|
|Cyclamen emerge amongst autumn leaves|
|Yellow - an expected color for autumn flowers|

My Garden Update
Some species of insect that loves tomatoes also feasted on the skin of my pomegranates this year. Better luck next year, perhaps?
The leaves on my dogwood trees never turn such a vibrant red but where I live we don't usually have a cold snap before the leaves have dropped. (Crape myrtle tree on the left, dogwoods center and right.)
