I love seeing all of the flowers on my morning walks here in South Texas.

Not only are there many species that aren’t seen at our home in Canada, but to see flowers of any kind blooming in November is a treat.

The flower in my feature photo is Golden Arrow – a subtype in the Plumeria family.

The soft white blossoms against the deep green foliage is a striking contrast that catches my attention each time I walk past this shrub.

Photo Note: In the original photo, I hadn’t set my exposure dark enough so the green foliage was a bit washed out in the morning sun. This was a simple fix in Snapseed, using the Vignette tool to darken the outer edges and lighten the blossoms
