Of Autumn Flower Beds

I wonder. I wonder whether the flowers the gardeners are planting in our office building’s many flower beds feel short-changed.

The other plants, the ones that were planted in Spring had all Spring and Summer to grow and blossom.

Meanwhile, these few, dark jewel-toned pansies and mums are practically doomed. Their life expectancy will undoubtedly be short and their doom is all but certain.

The growing chill in the evening air soon turns into frigid morning frost–sealing their fate. That is…if they survive this week’s series of chilly, windy, and very wet days.
