Monkshood ...

... and here I thought all the flowers were finished blooming! I was out with the dog in the rain this morning and found this Monkshood [Aconitum] blooming in a back corner. I was happy to see it because the buildings and backroad shots needed a rest.

Many thanks for dropping by.

Beautiful. We noticed the same with our Monkshood 10 days ago. I haven't seen how damaged it appears from our first hard frost last night.
