Succession of Wildflowers Coming to an end

Touch Me Nots dot the understory of the Indiana woods this morning; bright little flowers dangling in the darkness underneath leaf laden trees.

And joining the Touch Me Nots in their last hurrah of the season are tiny asters, the last flowers of the year that started out with Jack in the Pulpits and May Apples as spring progressed to summer and now into fall.

It's a cycle of time that is easy to miss in this world where our attention is attracted to other things; the parade of the wildflowers.
