(The last of my Sweet Peas...)



Today it is surprising how tenacious I am...
In spite of my obvious fragile nature.
I scoffed at last night's frost...
And today show off for the sun.
See me? Can you really see me?
All alight in my fuchsia blaze...
Look quick.
For soon I will be taken...
As the summer flickers...and fades.

:) beautiful!

you know, i have an errant iris that is just now starting to bloom, defying the cold with her purple blooms :)

luckily, we have avoided the frost thus far and my tomatoes still smile perky, tee hee

This year I planted magnolias, fuschia and a small rose bush... my sweet peas were planted too late in the season and never grew. Better luck next year :-)

Your sweet peas are lovely!!

Fuschia blaze indeed! And what stunning words. "Rage against the dying of the light..." nature truly does that during autumn, interesting.

Thank you for seeing the mountain inside me. It's in you too!

it still looks so green and vibrant, even in the background, it's hard to believe fall is coming!

Gorgeous picture...beautiful little sweet peas...a nice way to say farewell to the summer months.
I can't believe how fast it went by!
But so looking forward to fall...my favourite time of the year.

Sweet little post.
