Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.

Wordless Wednesday

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  1. Fall is here! There is a beauty in all the dried flowers and grasses that this season brings. Also, love the nutty smell of fall.

    • It’s been beautiful these past couple of days, sunshine and blue skies and big white puffy clouds. But before that it was freezing (literally) cold and rainy. Some of my gardens are still chugging along, but tis one is drying out. I don’t mind…pretty stuff either way.

    • This was my favorite zinnia, it never opened flat, stayed cupped and in bloom for weeks. I’m glad I got this shot, we had all sorts of wind, and there were no petals left on it a couple hours later. Once again I have to thank Katie for making me be out there in the first place yesterday morning so that I noticed it.

  7. Wow, beautiful! Good angle on the flower, nice choice of subject. I love photos of plants beyond their prime: The colorful flower is spent, but now it has its own beauty in its shape, and as well it speaks to it making seeds for future generations.

    • It has been my favorite zinnia for several weeks, a fushia color (which I didn’t notice this time until I looked at the image on my laptop), the petals never flattened down, it stayed cupped, but beautiful, it’s whole flowering life. I’m glad I got this image, we had wind yesterday and a couple hours after I took this I was out (with Katie of course) and there were no petals left.
