Saturday morning catch--Thanksgiving milkweeds
This fall the milkweeds finished dispensing seeds at least a month early, sadly enough. They're normally the single element of a November landscape worth much as a close-up, so these pics are several years old. But I'm still out of town, so I thought I'd put them up again, a reminder of ordinary Novembers.
I shot them, I remember, the day after Thanksgiving, just south of Sandy Hollow. Even though I know--I've hoed 'em--they're a royal pain in the butt and back when they infiltrate a field of soybeans, in cold prairie winds of early winter, they still seem somehow precious.
Maybe something like us.
