A favorite flower for a a quiet Friday, these monkshood are just beginning to bloom, a last-minute flower creeping open just before the deadline. And that is probably why I love them so much, being a deadline girl myself.
They sit just outside my studio window, with a spectacular cacophony of fall color as their backdrop.
I am reminding myself to look up often, absorb some of this color before winter dons her old grey coat.
I am also ignoring the messy part of my garden, focusing on the good parts, the summer flowers still hanging on, these few autumn varieties just beginning their show.
Raindrops and silence this morning. Grey sky, warm tea, still air.
The only sound comes from autumn’s spectrum.
A gorgeous melody, indeed.
Wishing you a weekend filled with color.
