Spider Mums, Spider Mums

December 4, 2023

One of the rules for my photo diary project is I limit myself to one photo per day (because it grew out of a 365 group on Flickr). Once in a great while I decide a collage of several images counts as one photo but mostly I make those sometimes hard choices. But writing more thanks to Holidailies means those photos that didn’t get chosen to represent their day can have a moment (yes, it seems like I could also write more at other times of the year, but experience has shown that I generally do not manage to do so). Thus today I bring you three of the blossoms that graced the sideboard at Thanksgiving.

I know cut flowers aren’t great from an environmental standpoint, so I don’t buy them often. But they sure are pretty to look at, and that’s great for my mental environment. Life is full of tough choices and trade offs.
