Gulf Coast. Fall. Florida too. This is one reason why people move down here. Mild autumn and winters. Some flowers die or hibernate. Many do not.
You’ve seen these flowers earlier this year during spring. Here they are again in autumn. Apparently, they thrive in cooler weather, which a Gulf Coast summer is not.
I say this with no snark, but while you are cold and snowy in the north, we are mild and colorful. I freely admit that I like cold and snow. My poor spine does not.
That’s what happens as you age. If we wanted to stay somewhere along the Gulf Coast, we should probably move to someplace like Destin or Tampa, both of which are in Florida. For us it would probably be Tampa because we do like an urban environment.
There are a couple of other places too. I’m not talking. I don’t want to casta bad spell on those options.
Oh. More about the flowers. They appear to be growing on Elephant plants. I think that’s wrong. They are growing between them. They are their own flowering weed. I prefer wildflower.
The flowers are greatly enlarged in this picture. They are no bigger than my thumbnail.
Seeing. These yellow flowers called out to me from about 50 yards away. They are very bright. They are also brand new, which means that they haven’t faded.
It’s kind of the same old thing for me. See it. Photograph it. Develop it.
That comes with a lot of practice. Don’t be afraid to photograph everything.
When people look at me as if to say what are you doing, I usually say out loud, “don’t you wish you were taking pictures?”
Pictures are fun. Not work.
Stay safe. Stay mighty. Wear your mask. Keep your distance. Wash your hands. Look after each other. Enjoy all the flowers.
