Fall Flowers

My wife planted wildflowers last spring. First they didn’t sprout and I thought they were all duds. Then, for the longest time, they looked like a bunch of weeds.

“It’s just weeds,” I told her, ready to rip them of the ground.

“They’re flowers,” she replied.

“No, seriously, let’s make a bet.”

I lost the bet but it wasn’t until late August or early September before the flowers really arrived. It’s late October now and here’s what they look like.
