flowers who are confused- thankful

For the last several days there has been a peony sitting in a vase on the windowsill, just today she has finally faded. She was not aware that it is November. Her entire family of plants outside continue to bloom, even her purple cousins in the front yard. The roses recovered nicely from their early frosts and have buds preparing to open as I write. The marigolds are blissfully unaware of the fact that they probably should have given up the ghost a month ago, even the impatiens are still going strong in a few places. Bless them for not knowing that it is fall, time for them to drop their leaves and fall asleep for the winter. Bless them for making autumn even more beautiful than usual.
