Some Flowers For November

Soon most of the plants will have shed their leaves.  Autumn will have accomplished its purpose.  I offer the following photos as a testament to the beautiful season which has passed.  I have always loved flowers, and I hope the photos reflect it.FO 3FO 4FO 5FO 6FO 7FO 9FO 10FO 15FO11FO 1

About Robert M. Weiss
From an early age, I've taken great pleasure in reading. Also, I learned to play my 78 player when I was quite young, and enjoyed listening to musicals and classical music. I remember sitting on the floor, and following the text and pictures of record readers, which were popular in the 1940s and 50s. My favorites were the Bozo and Disney albums. I also enjoyed watching the slow spinning of 16s as they spun out tales of adventure. I have always been attracted by rivers, and I love to sit on a boulder with my feet in the water, gazing into the mysteries of swirling currents. I especially like inner tubing on the Rogue River in Southern Oregon. Since my early youth, I've been interested in collecting minerals, which have taught me about the wonderful possibilities in colors and forms. Sometimes I try to imagine what the ancient Greeks must have felt when they began to discover physical laws in nature. I also remember that I had a special passion for numbers, and used to construct them out of stones. After teaching Russian for several years, I became a writer, interviewer, editor, and translator. I continue to delight in form, and am a problem solver at heart.

    The biggest pic, the vertical one, takes the cake. After all the fall pictures I’ve been seeing a lot in the blogosphere, it’s nice to take a rest and smell the flower. 😀

  2. Thanks for the appreciative comment, Rommel, and the clever response.
