Fall Flowers

Oh man! It is fall.  Lots of people love fall because of Pumpkin Spice Lattes and boots with scarves and vests. Some love it for the hay bales and jack-o-lanterns.  Others for the apple butter and plaid blankets.

I love those things too.  I sure do.  But I also love fall for another reason.

I love the attitude of my fall flowers.  There are only one or two, but mostly one, of them at a time.  And I respect their I’m-doing-this-because-it-is-beautiful-and-right-so-there approach to the world.  You bloom, flowers!fall flowers 4
