Michigan Flowers

I took a lot of flower photos when I was in Michigan last month and decided to put them together in their own post.
I don't have names for all the flowers, but maybe I'll add them as I find out what they are.

Black-Eyed Susans

Autumn Joy Sedum

Flowers from a dogwood. Not sure which species. Maybe Red-Osier?

I love the zoomed in details of this flower.

And they are followed by these berries.

This Monarch Butterfly had just hatched out of it's chrysalis.

Monarchs that hatch at this time of the year are the 4th generation. These are the butterflies that will migrate south over 2000 miles for the winter to either Mexico or southern California.

I like these dwarf zinnas. The colors are so vibrant!

Butterfly Bush

These hibiscus are often referred to as dinner-plate hibiscus due to the size of it's blooms. This one was huge!!

This one had very crepe-paper thin petals. Just beautiful.
