The next generation...

You know, I usually think of Fall as time when everything is shutting down for the Winter. Annuals are dying and many perennials are going into hibernation.

I'm only partially right about that, though. Many plants are also preparing for the next generation.


This is not only a season of ending but of beginning as well. Plants are dropping the seeds that will sprout in the Spring to bring next year's beauty.

Although most appear somewhat dreary, I love the great promise that lies within seeds.

Did you know that roses form seeds, too?

{'Ballerina' rose hips}

Most seeds I just let handle their futures themselves.

{Wild Aster}

These Morning Glory seeds, however, I have collected to share with a couple of friends.

Have a beautiful day!

I was thinking about your blue morning glories yesterday, and smiling. :)
