Despite day time temperatures in the high 70 to low 80 degree range in the southern Rocky Mountains, there are fewer hours of daylight. Change is in the air. The birds feel it. Humans feel it. The autumnal equinox is upon us tomorrow. Flowers show their final beauty by fading into fall. Buds are still appearing on rose bushes around town, although the blooms are smaller, and the hollyhocks continue to put forth blooms, just to insure their species will continue into coming years. With gnarled leaves, and colors slightly less saturated, the flowers display a new and lovely delicacy.
