A week ago these beauties were radiant, full of colour and energy. They proudly stood in my neighbour’s garden. They gallantly moved to the rhythm of the wind.
Little attention was paid to them, by their owners, passers by and me.
I am glad I discovered them before the first breezes announcing “Jack Frost” arrived. They are now gone. Below zero evenings were more than they could stand. Now I will have to wait until next year to see their rebirth, growth and bloom. I promise I will pay them their deserved attention and some of my photos will be devoted to them.
