Blossom Fall

The garden constantly reminds me that nothing stays the same. Many of the wonderful blossoms I pictured in my last post are now on the ground, blown off by the rain and wind of the last few days. I felt some sadness when I looked from the window this morning and saw the change, although the confetti on the lawn has its own beauty.

  1. I love the blossom at this time of year and the petals, even when they’ve fallen to the ground, are so pretty.
