I went out and about to find more fall colors
and, instead, I stumbled upon these pretty-in-pink crysanthemums.
What a pleasant surprise!
These flowers always remind me of comedian Phylis Diller’s
crazy hats and hairdos.

Funny how a simple flower
can instantly trigger a thought of someone or someplace.
Violets always make me think of my Nana, whose name is Vi.
Lilacs remind me of my dad because, despite liking the smell of them,
he always sneezed around the ones in our backyard when we were little!
And carnations catapult me back to awkward high school dances.

So…which flowers remind you of people, places or the past?
I’d love to hear!
