The magenta flowers are lovely in their own right, but the deep shadows make them more elegant and stylish. The bold floral colors are soon to depart for us up North - happily we can savor these fo a little while longer...

OH! I am so jealous! I used to have some autumn crocus but a squirrel dug them up and ate them. These are so pretty.
