when you forget to look






i admit i wanted fall i counted the days. last week i complained about the heat, begged the fall to come and stay....but while doing all this i forgot to look in the garden at all the foliage and blooms i had admired all summer long. ignored left to die while still living-yes perhaps i am overly dramatic about this whole thing but i rather think passionate!

I thing the flowers take on a different quality in the fall - instead of riotous abundance, there is a different kind of decadence, like those old master still-lifes of the decaying fruit. You can sense the edge of mortality.

Gorgeous shots, as always :)

yes, Stephnie said it so well, through flowers you can sense the edge of mortality, love them when the summer is leaving.

You keep posting pictures that catch my breath... You excel at still pics. You make these flowers look more beautiful and complete that any simple flower in a garden.

Simply beautiful. I have no flowers left in my garden, but am enjoying all the wildflowers that pop up roadside at this time of year.
