Today's Flowers: Orange You Lovely

Here are a few blossoms from the gardens of Harkness Memorial Park, where Della and I passed several languid, lovely hours a few weekends ago. As the cold air and wind have come our way, we have thought of hot chocolate and snow and warm blankets on early nights. Time moves swiftly.

    Great captures of both the blooms. I have a soft spot for single-petalled dahlias ever since I learnt that they attract more pollinators. The park must have been really beautiful.

  23. I love flowers. I love that they always come back. They leave for a little while, but with their departure is a promise that they won't forget to come back in the spring.
