Pastels, As Promised
Almost reminiscent of Spring, I have been finding small pockets of fresh blooms despite the late season. What a treat! The contrast, in a long view, is pretty strong as so much is going to seed or already dry and dead. But I decided to ignore that part of the view and focus on these fresh, tender blossoms for a few moments of denial that the weather is changing now, and changing quickly.
The optimism of nature: the odds are very good that few of these plants will have time to set seed before frosts overcome them. So this wave of blossoms is for our pleasure and to provide a bit of food for the bees and the bugs.
