Frantic Blooming

“There was something frantic in their blooming, as if they knew that frost was near and then the bitter cold.  They’d lived through all the heat and noise and stench of summertime, and now each widely opened flower was like a triumphant cry:  “We will, we will make seed before we die!” –  Harriette Arnow

  1. I love the quote!
    For some reason the images are not showing up.
    Either way, i loved the quotes on this one and Queen Anne’s lace!
    Best regards,

  2. Nancy, can you see that silver on the photo or is it just me? Mine have been doing that, too. Lovely colors.

    Hi Sandy — no, I don’t see any silver in the photo. It might be your monitor settings? Yes, I do love the brights of autumn!

  3. Nancy, Where do you get these fantastic quotes! I know where you get the fantastic photos! gail

    Some of them I remember, Gail, from things I’ve read. (I read a lot. :) Most times, I just Google until I find a quote/poem/excerpt that seems appropriate. They’re out there if you’re willing to spend the time looking, though it can be time consuming. Sometimes I’ll come upon a site that takes me far away from what I’m really looking for.

  4. The quote! I love the quote! You have the most beautiful photos and words to go with them.
