October is here and the garden has taken on a new look. Most of the flowering is done, seed pods now cling where flowers once danced.
Still a few resilient blooms remain…
This one tarrying daisy sways, lovely in her perfection, undaunted that she stands alone.
A small burst of purple on the clamatis vine, a gentle reminder of what was.
“We should enjoy this summer, flower by flower, as if it were to be the last one we’ll see.” ~ André Gide
