Saying Good-bye to the Flowers
If you've been reading my blog for awhile, I'm sure you have discovered that I love flowers! In early spring I start looking for the first little buds; those buds turn to blossoms and provide color and fragrance after the barrenness of winter. Each autumn I dread the night of the first hard frost. And all the next day I mourn the loss of bud and blossom. Last night was our first hard frost. Even after the sun was up for an hour or so this morning, the thermometer on the back porch read 25 degrees F. So, today in memory of the flowers, I am posting pictures that I've taken during the past week or so --- appreciating the last of the summer blossoms. Winter will soon be here.
