Gone to Seed
This year I’ve done a terrible job with my flower beds. Few flowers got deadheaded and the weeds and grass are running rampant. The only places that got a little attention this year were the veggie gardens.
Now, as the days grow shorter and the flowers spent, I’ve discovered the upside to my inattention: the beauty of the seeds.
The peonies were the first to charm me, and I began to notice the beauty of seeds in other places.

A peony that has all but fully opened to release its seeds.
