It's that time of year again -- flowers are fading and being pulled out of flower beds while folks are beginning to plan for fall and winter weather. Seed pods of every variation appear and I'm fascinated with the flower/plant cycle. Gillian thinks I'm really weird because I love seed pods. I find them infinitely more interesting than the flower although not as pretty. Just more interesting.
We had enough rain in the month of September that there was actually a little moss on the poppy seed pods. It was cool.
The weather looked like this tonight. There may be snow in the higher elevations by morning. Arrgh!!! I'm not ready for snow. The fall is very subdued this year. Very little color.
So fall is here, ready or not. I love the season but have a sense of dread knowing that cold winter is close behind. I hope more color shows up on the mountains before it's all over.
