Today's Flowers: One Among Many
These are blooming by the score along the road at the bottom of the hill. (I am hoping Digital Flowers will stop by with the name!) They are beautiful, and they endure. These blossoms survived our bizarre little blast furnace of a heat wave two weeks ago, and they thrived through last week's cool spell. (Welcome to New England, where we promise nothing if not incontinuity in the weather. We call it being flexible. It means you never put your clothes away at the end of a season. As soon as you do, you find you need them.)
Walking along, I found I had to photograph this not-so-subtle reminder that nothing lasts forever. Oh well. Right now is more than enough. Make a wish and blow the fuzz away--and walk on!
