A Stroll in the Garden

“Perfumes are the feelings of flowers.”
– Heinrich Heine

 

“He who is born with a silver spoon in his mouth is generally considered a fortunate person, but his good fortune is small compared to that of the happy mortal who enters this world with a passion for flowers in his soul.”
– Celia Thaxter

The fate of the flowers…

The following photos were taken with my phone camera while I stood in my yard on September 28, 2019.

Winter chased Autumn with a vengeance.

    • Thank you, Margaret! I am blessed to live here in spite of such changeable weather! You cannot tell from these photos but there is a river that runs between the mountains that you see, and the mountain that I live on.
