Autumn Flowers–Pure Magic

Fall flowers 3 - Snapdragons

Bright splashes of colour peeking through the browns of fall – pure magic indeed. I’m not referring to flowers that are meant to bloom specifically for autumn. Things like Chrysanthemums, colourful Michaelmas Daisies and Autumn Crocuses. I’m talking about the hardy summer blooming flowers that just won’t give up on the chance to flash showy colours as the cold nights of fall descend.

    Such lovely quotes. Until we have our first frost, we can continue to enjoy our summer flowers sharing space with the brilliant autumn leaves.

    How beautiful and somewhat surprising to me! I love each of the quotes, but in particular, Fitzgerald. It reminds me that autumn is an opportunity! Lovely post. 🙂

    • Thanks, Debra. It’s interesting to reflect on a favourite season. I admit to having a hard time deciding. Spring is glorious with all the new life and potential. Summer is so lush and bursting with life and colour. But fall – fall is amazing. That feeling that we are holding our breath, waiting. Winter has never been my favourite but it has it’s wonder moments, too.

I would really love to hear what you think about this post . . .
