Todays Flowers #68

These purple mums were in three bushel baskets in front of our house for Autumn. Luckily, I took this picture before the cold weather came. This coming week, all three plants need to be tossed in the garage. I am sad to see such lovely flowers go. Instead, I should look forward to the next season which is usually a cold, snowy winter. Sometimes, winter can look like fairy land.

  6. You've reminded me that I need to toss the dead ones that linger in front of our house, too. It always makes me sad when we have to get rid of them - almost like it's an admission that summer truly is over.

    We may have known it, logically, for months. But emotionally, it doesn't hit until the flower and plant remnants get thrown away.

  16. Wonderful shades of lavender with a touch of magenta!
    It is always hard to say good-bye to such beauty when the season turns to winter.
