etherial milkweed silk and seeds
robust vibrant life,
animated, growing, strong,
one day yields to death,
withering in transition
to be faithfully reborn.

My response to The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge: Transition.



Yesterday it snowed again here in the western edge of the Hudson Valley, New York. Perhaps soon we’ll have some spring color like these blooms display. I photographed them a few years ago at the New York Botanical Gardens in the Bronx.

The NYBG presents a spectacular orchid show every year. This year the show began in February and runs until April 19th.

This post is my response to the One Word Photo Challenge: Mauve. Thank you Jennifer for the challenge!
