Last Flowers of Summer
As the days shorten, the air cools and leaves begin to turn - I've found two late bloomers to share with you.
We drove up to Linville, NC to a native plants nursery high in the hills. While walking through their greenhouses I spotted two spots of color. They were very brave in their stance - given that it gets a lot cooler up there than it does here. I love the idea that these two plants wanted to share their color just a little while longer.
"Flowers... are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world". - Ralph Waldo Emerson
