What Remains – Picture Fall, day 9

I couldn’t decide today which picture I liked better for today’s photo prompt – so I submitted both to the class’s photo gallery.  Will you tell me which one you would have picked?  We were instructed to find something that just isn’t willing to let go.  Kinda like me and my feelings about summer!  I had two pretty hangers-on left in my yard:

Picture Fall - day 9

A tiny bit of butterfly bush (surrounded by faded bloom bokeh) and…

Picture Fall - day 9

… a zinnia bud, still waiting to bloom.

Of course this prompt got me thinking a bit deeper than just the flowers in my backyard.  However, I couldn’t decide how I’d picture how not ready I will be in less than 3 years to let my older daughter go off to college!


  1. I like them both — too hard to pick just one! And yes, I can completely understand how you will not be ready to let go of your oldest. I will feel the same way!!!

    • Andrea, it just feels like the time is so fleeting. I know it is the natural order of things for the child to move away from the parent both physically and emotionally, but I’m having hard time just thinking about it!

  2. Tough call! They’re both beautiful….. I think I’d go with the butterfly bush 🙂

    • I couldn’t decide either. I like ’em both for different reasons.
      Thanks, Michaela.

  3. Love the zinnia bud. The pattern on it is exquisite.

  4. I can see why you had trouble deciding. I like them both but if forced to make a choice, I’ll have to pick the butterfly bush.

    • Its interesting – I think its been a fairly even split between the two.
