Beginning of the End

The fireweed is easily one of my favorite flowers, but it's appearance is bittersweet. It just started popping up this week in bloom, and while the landscapes are being transformed into pink patches, it also means summer is almost at an end. Stories say when the last bud reaches the top of the stalk, winter is 6 weeks away. Pretty sure that's the saying!
