tattered late august wildflowers, pondside

Took a walk around my absolute favorite marsh pond to spy on some wildflowers and bees in the golden morning sun. How I love to go for walks in the mornings, especially with this perfect weather we’ve been having here in the northeast! I’m feeling a bit sentimental about all the late summer colors, along with the tattered wildflower petals (a bit more ragged than usual this year from all the rain and stormy winds) and bumblebees with wings worse for wear. But in that sentimentality is a wee spark of excitement for crisp weather and all the other splendor that comes with the season.
