Fright Wig

The North Wind blew throughout the night
And gave the milkweed quite a fright.

Thanks to dmmgmfm for the nudge. OK. This one's for you :0) Haven't felt very creative or communicative lately. Guess it's just a 'fall, 'thing - a bit of the old body 'misbehaving' thing.

I took the picture last fall and the little rhyme just popped right out.

Nice picture. Milkweed can be very pretty.

Oh, looks like my hair-do some mornings. Thanks for bringing me my morning chuckle.

Cathy said...

Ohhh, that's funny, Cuppa. I'd never guess that from your pretty picture, but yes, morning in the mirror can be pretty unkind :0)

Thanks, AC - I'm posting another one tomorrow from my film camera taken years ago.

Isn't the wind in late summer a delight! Who knows what fortunate meadow will receive these offerings.

Cathy said...

Ah,Bonita - fortunate, indeed. How long has it been since you felt the silky down of these plants? It's been year for me, but the memory lingers.

Thank you very much! I absolutely adore your photos. Now I need to update my blog. I've been at my dad's in the mountains, only dial-up there, so no posting for me! We had a couple of good adventures; I'll post some pictures later tonight.
