In The Chilly Hours And Minutes

It's not uncommon for me to be about before dawn, so when daylight savings time kicked in yesterday, it already seemed late before the sun was even up. Just before daylight, the stillness drew me into the garden, where the flowers' beauty seemed even more pronounced against the black sky.

At the very top are trumpet vine buds, wending their way along the trellis above the front porch. And freesia blossoms, seemingly all the more fragrant in the dark.

Formerly robust daisy blossoms were going to seed.

And gallardia seeds that seem gray and dull in the daylight shown silver in the flash.
