I was out in the office garden taking some pictures of all the beautiful flowers in full bloom a few days ago. Looking back at the photos I noticed this lone Fireweed photo-bombing the Delphiniums. The flowers on the Fireweed plant bloom from the bottom of the plant up, and the saying goes that once the flowers reach the top there are only 6 weeks left till winter. I certainly hope this isn't true because this is only the end of July, and if I do the math I don't like the answer! Maybe that little Fireweed is there to remind me to pay attention and take time to enjoy this beautiful, short-lived season while being mindful that changing seasons are inevitable and should be welcomed...even winter.
