Flower Friday - Still Blooming!

It's Flower Friday, and we still have plenty blooming!

The wild Blanket Flowers are having a party.

The "Variable Checkerspot" butterflies are happy about it! This one hunkered down on a Blanket Flower on a very windy afternoon.

And a pretty beetle also loves the Blanket Flowers.

I think that Shyla might like them too!
Thanks to the gang at LLB for hosting the Flower Friday blog hop!
