When I was walking home I saw
cabbages dusted with the frosty shades of damson plums …
and so many more things I didn’t photograph:
three little tabby cats,
and two large stone dogs;
walkers with their carriages and cell phones;
houses surrounded by gardens settling into the end of season;
red roses glowing
and the woods going dark at dusk.
These I did snap:
The zinnias I wrote about last year …
and the sphere warning where the sidewalk ended.
They were all so beautiful.
