Pretty Maids

Even though the heat and humidity are their peak right now, there is a change in the light and color.
The humming birds are in a feeding frenzy, and there are butterflies and dragon flies everywhere, they  know fall is waiting in the wings.

The garden is looking sad, a few peppers and zinnias (old maids) are standing defiantly while everything else has wilted and died.  It always seems that the zinnias get brighter and stronger and more beautiful toward the end of summer.  They refuse to
go out with a whimper.  They are truly pretty maids in a row.
