A Sort of Wordless Wednesday: Fading Beauty


 
The Aster tataricus sways gently in the Autumn breeze.  Was it just last week that she was covered with pollinators of every shape and size!  I am going to miss you when your gone dear autumn.

  2. There is something bittersweet about the fading beauty of blooms. And yet, there is an allure that is hard to describe. Fascinating photos!

  4. Oh yes, this is the time of year when every fading bloom is to be cherished, knowing there will be no more to replace them any time soon.

  5. I will miss your garden too once the flowers fade. We've been flirting with freezing temperatures the last few days, and so few flowers are left. I'm already anxious for spring, and winter isn't even here yet!

  7. Fading here as well, but sure to see them next year. I did see a bee in the foxglove today. That was a surprise since we may have snow tomorrow.

  9. Been amazed at how much was still blooming this week. Cold front just blew in today, but will warm up again next week. Roses, alyssum (amazing alyssum and honey fragrance), mums, Encore azaleas, gaillardia and salvia greggii.

  10. You've just made me think twice about the expression "faded beauty." Is there a phrase for this that doesn't suggest that it was more beautiful before? I wonder.

  11. Nice capture. Some of my plants are being slowly lulled to sleep.

  12. Gail you always have the most amazing golden light in your pictures. The impression of motion in the petals just adds to the loveliness of the image.
