Promises



The Kousa dogwood fruits look an awful lot like the representations of the Covid virus. Still, they're beautiful and they represent a hope for the future and more dogwood trees.


The seed pods of the Siberian iris have a quiet elegance.


The hollyhocks are super achievers--each flower stalk is covered with seed capsules, each containing many seeds.


The Black-eyed Susans will feed birds and probably chipmunks but there'll be plenty of seeds for propagating.

As we ease into Fall, it's nice to see the promises Nature makes for Spring.

Photos of plants in their later stages appeal to me as much or more than in full bloom.

The only ones I see these days are four-o'clock seeds. They reseed abundantly. Our regular dogwoods have little red berries, nothing as exotic as yours! And someone forgot to pull out all the day lilies' spikes and I noticed the remains from flowers might be seeds. Never saw that before!

Lovely sentiment to accompany your photos.

I love that idea: the promises of spring inherent in these signals from nature in the fall. Beautiful pictures.
