night held tight
in the morning’s frost
while the bloom asserted day

Amazing to see frost. It’s yet another reminder of how large our country is, and how things differ from one section to another. And it’s a beautiful photo. I once saw snow on lilacs — there’s something about flowers covered with frost or snow that’s strangely heart-warming.
Lovely image, C. It expresses well this transitional time.
I always tend to feel sorry for the lingering flowers that suffer the embrace of early winter. Lovely capture…all the same 🙂
So beautiful and fleeting…
Wonderful colors and details.
This is amazing!
Black-eyed Susans are so tough … I saw some in perfect bloom just last week. Nice photo!
A fave…such fine textures and hues
Love this image!
it’s always amazing to see which plants/flowers can survive a frost…I have some calendula and French hollyhocks that are tough as nails. Seasonal fence-sitters?
seasonal fence sitters – what a GREAT phrase!

Wow, we seem drawn to similar images, however I have no talent for applying the lovely words to them that you do! I want to send them to my sister, a master gardener (and bird watcher) but I am still new enough I’m not sure how or even IF that is allowed. I see a button that says reblog. I think I’ll try that.
Thanks again and thanks for the visit to my blog.
