After the Equinox

26 September 2020 — Oh, it is fall.

Plants in the Dude Chilling Park allotment gardens show why I once called this “the ragged season” …

and a near-by sunflower droops his head in submission.

While humans pile on more clothing, plants start shedding.

Leaves & petals wither & fall away …

seed pods as well.

But some blossoms are still glorious …

and win expert approval.

The Double-Bee Cluster of Appreciation.

    Love these photos, Penny. So beautiful.They look like Vancouver!

  2. The Shedding Season is a good name. 🙂

  3. Great pics, I love the double bee! 😮

  4. I love the chaos of early fall and the sweet surrender of those final blooms that you have captures, it’s so poignant. But I guess you’ll be finding “final” blooms for at least another month on your rambles, right? Thanks for the walk!

    • yes, around here fall is a very long process – by the time it’s really-truly over, spring is shaking itself awake, so no real ‘winter’ at all
