Fall flowers are such a gift! In the springtime, you’ve been waiting all winter for signs of life from the Earth, and the first flowers are precious. I’m sure by next spring, I’ll be as eager for spring flowers as ever.

But in the fall, the bite of winter is in the air before it asserts itself in the temperature. The days get shorter so quickly, and there’s a feeling of gratitude for every warm moment, every ray of sun. And the fall flowers give us one last big dose of color and joy, like a farewell present. I love the uninhibited blooming of these mums, and the last-ditch efforts of my snapdragons, and especially the moxie of the lone geranium!
