Took A Walk up the Street, Again

I’ve mentioned this before, but a couple of blocks up the street from me is a house whose side yard borders the sidewalk.  This is probably the fifth or sixth time I have taken pictures of the flowers in the that yard the past couple of years.  The vast majority of flowers in this skinny 20 foot long garden are zinnias, but there are also a few coneflowers, and this season there were also a few cosmoses for the first time.

 

I’m pretty sure this skipper is on a zinnia since that’s the vast majority of flowers in the garden, but I can’t see the sepal so I’m not positive.

 

This is one of those “I don’t knows” that I see so many of.

 

Another “I don’t know”.  Wild guess would be dogwood.

 

This, I’m sure, is a zinnia.

 

As is this.

 

And this.

 

A shot of a skipper on a zinnia to bookend the first photo in this post.

 

Thank you for stopping by.
