A Kiss Before Dying...

BetterPhoto.com Editor's Pick   A Kiss Before Dying...
A Kiss Before Dying...

----
The last Canna blossom, delicate and undersized, bends to give a “good night kiss” to her offspring (seed pods) in the Autumn of her demise.
---
Photographed at Sayen Gardens in Hamilton Square, New Jersey in October. I have not gone to check on the Gardens since Sandy's devastating blow.

Nice story on this, Michelle. We all forget flowers lead the same life story as us. Very well done!

Lovely shot Michelle and the way you put it so eloquently, a little bit sad, even if it is just a flower.

A beautiful reminder that all is impermanent, that only change is constant and in every moment there is wondrous beauty to behold! Fine example here, Michelle!
