Cuckoo

The world is complicated, and sometimes things are not as they should be.

Today is the last day of September. Yesterday, we picked apples and pears, we enjoyed the brilliance of the changing leaves, we gloried in a chairlift ride up Hunter Mountain on a perfect fall day.

And I took pictures of some of the flowers around in the yard:

Flowering Quince

Dandelion

Rose

Mountain Bluet


Why yes, they aren't supposed to be blooming now, in the fall, on the verge of October. It's supposed to be in the spring that cuckoo-buds of yellow hue do paint the meadows with delight...

But aren't they lovely?

They are, especially the flowering quince. I don't see that often.

I don't think I've ever seen flowering quince before. It's gorgeous -- wonder if it would do well in my area of the country.
