Photo Challenge #15 - ABSTRACT

I took a walk around my neighborhood, to take pictures for this week's challenge.

This one is a look into the world of the Russian Sage! This plant is in the corner of our yard and is beautiful at this time of year, with it's purple flowers! The honeybees love it too!
A close up of a sunflower, grown to feed the birds this coming winter. This flower has seen it's prime, but is still pretty in it's own way.
I caught my neighbor watering her yard, and she was glad to help me with this shot! I thought that the water droplets looked pretty cool with the tree leaves in the background!
This one was a last minute thought. Dusty has just finished painting out livingroom. He's painted 3 of the walls a mocha color. The 4th wall is painted this "burgandy texture"......I took a closeup picture of it and it looks kinda weird here. Guess sometime soon I'll have to post a picture of the whole wall so you can see how nice it really does look!! In the evenings, with the lighting low it looks like fabric on the wall! But anyway, I thought that the picture was interesting!!

Thanks for a fun challenge Lotti!! What's next girls?? I'm ready and waiting with camera in hand!! Have a great week!!
