It’s September And Where Have All The Flowers Gone?
Spring is long gone now and Summer is coming to an end here in Northeastern Pennsylvania. And most of flowers we so enjoyed during the past few months are gone too. Some, like the lyrics in the Pete Seeger, were picked by young girls but many developed into fruits, seeds or nuts, and for them on my afternoon hike today.
The beautiful apple blossoms that were so delicate and fragrant in May are now delicious ripe apples bending the limbs of their trees with their weight. And I know they are delicious, since i ate a few.
And the grape flowers are now ripe bunches of groups pictured above.
A lot of other seeds, fruits and nuts are to be found everywhere you look this time of year. But there are still some flowers providing us with their beauty and fragrance like this beautiful rose i came across on my walk.
So enjoy the flowers that are still in bloom, or the fruits of those that bloomed earlier in the Spring and Summer, because we will soon get our first frosts and they all will be gone. Here is a link to some more photographs I took on my hike this afternoon. https://keepyoureyespeeled.net/photographs-5/nggallery/blog-photos/end-of-summer-hike-september-3-2015
