Brendas Photo Challenge:Photo Essay

The End Of Summer

With tattered flowers once held dear
Seasons change, the end of summer is near
While raking leaves, or plodding in the snow
We will wonder, where did summer go?

It's too bad we can't stop this change
Having flowers fold up to buds would be strange
Fighting humid days, and seeing record highs
We have lost our season, for now it sighs.

  6. Nice post and beautiful photos.
    The end of summuer, to me,is the end of everything. The sun will not warm my old bones.
    I will neither watch my flowers anymore nor eat the vegetables of my kitchengarden.
    I will be cold to be cold. Brrrr !
    Ups, I forget, on october I go in a country where the weather is always very nice and hot.
