Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished

Life in the Bloom household has been so madly busy this week that I really feel the need to go for a walk in the sunshine & enjoy a little peace amongst some flowers. Since this day is all but over & darkness has descended, it will have to be a virtual walk! Care to join me? Let's walk down here ...
I took these photos a couple of weeks ago in my local Botanic Gardens. Being late Autumn, there are not a lot of blooms to be found. But I did stumble upon a dahlia patch.
Giant, spiky ones ...
Cute pom-pom, button ones ...
Serene & simple ones, tinged faintly with pink ...
Ooooh, and a bee's bottom!
The camellia's are unfurling their plump buds ...
... to reveal a golden boss of stamens.
I have no clue what this little pink beauty is, but she sure is pretty!
And then around the corner is a beautiful collection of salvias. These are for you Annie!
Soothing blues and purples ...
... and a seldom seen yellow.
"Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves". ~ John Muir
Ahhh, that's better. Everything seems better after a turn about a garden, virtual or not! Peace descends. The night is quiet ... before the chaos that will be morning!
