FOUNTAIN CREEK, AT THE EDGE OF FALL

Its been about 2 weeks since I last visited Fountain Creek.  The banks that were lush and green not too long ago are now covered with a blanket of dry leaves.

The cattails have shed their dark velvet coats and reach out for the breeze to catch its fluff and carry it away to distant lands.

The milkweed grew weary of waiting on the monarchs to show and went to seed without them.  There was no sign at all that the butterflies had visited the patch this year, not even an old chrysalis.

The milk weed has an essence about it.   It takes me back to my childhood, and I recall a time looking at milkweeds from a young boys perspective.   How the years have passed, like the spring and summer milk weed.    mark
