Winds Of Change

I have tried and failed miserably at shots like this one..However, yesterday I tried again. This time I was happy with the end result. I know it's not my usual shot but I like it and I really like the dreamy bokeh here.........

 

"Carl Linnaeus named the genus after Asclepius, the Greek god of healing, because of the many folk-medicinal uses for the milkweed plants."

 

"As of 2007, milkweed is grown commercially as a hypoallergenic filling for pillows." (I didn't know this did you?)

 

This year September 22nd is the Autumn equinox which means it is the first day of Autumn. For many people, Fall means nicer weather, Thanksgiving, Halloween, and spending time with family. Happy Fall Everyone!

 

HBW Enjoy!! (something a little different for the first day of fall ;)
