In denial

It’s a good word; rolls off the tongue nicely. I like saying it. Deciduous.

Anyway, it’s that time of year of course, and most of the trees have been losing their leaves. But I think one of my shrubs is in denial.

It’s flowers have died off and are slowly falling off.

Haven’t you heard? Winter is coming…
