Transitions, Continued




Perhaps I am fascinated by this because by now, normally, there would be no flowers outside, HERE. I know some of you live in warm climates or in places in the Southern hemisphere where it is warm at this time of year. But normally, here, it is cold. These pictures were taken this week.

The geranium is OUTside, on someone's porch.

The chrysanthemum is outside, I think right next door to the geranium. You can see a Christmas tree in the window.

This can't last forever--soon, there will be pictures of snow!!

I like your idea of transitions, more visible in this period of the year.
And let me quote the Guns N' Roses: "nothing last forever, even cold November rain"

Hi Mary,
Stunning shots indeed.
I am sure that winter will come to you as well sooner or later. - It came to us this week. At last-:)

I think it's fascinating how nature adapts to the light and the warmth. I noticed only last week that some of the trees had started to develope leaves again.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Best regards
Asta

That is unusual to have those flowers sitting outside this time of year!

It's been "relatively" cold here the past couple of days...like in the 50s and I think it will get down to 38 tonight...way too cold for me!

Hope all is well!

Snow is arriving here tonight, so says Environment Canada. Autumn was lovely while it lasted. :)

Thank you, all! I am sorry I am behind! It's finally been cold here, not that I've been in a hurry for it. We've been having some snow but not a lot yet.
