Flowers during late fall and winter months are always quite intriguing. As much as I love the surprise late and early blooms, the expiring, nearly colorless leftover flowers are my favorite.
While walking by a patch of dead grass and flower bed that had seen better days, this bloom grabbed all my attention. The brown colors, crisp petals and fine details are fantastic. And to be honest, I struggled to remember what this beauty looked like during prime time.
It's always easy to stay inside during cold months. Each year I challenge myself to throw on a jacket, boots and head outside to see what may be waiting. Brown and nearly expired beauty tends to be around every corner.
