Pixel Prose Challenge–Autumn’s Last Blush

Amanda, from Unique Art Chic sponsors a weekly challenge that evokes so many feelings from me each time I see her work.  Her awe-inspiring photography along with her prose never fails to amaze me!  You must see what she did this week by clicking here.

My contribution this week suggests that even here the polar vortex is spreading fingers of cold downward toward us in the Florida Panhandle.  This week found my Parlor Maple still blooming, while frost painted the roofs sparkly white.

Parlor Maple Autumn

Many thanks to Amanda for sponsoring this fabulous weekly challenge.

Thanks for visiting me on this Sunday.  I always enjoy seeing each and every one of you!

About Colleen M. Chesebro

Colleen M. Chesebro is an American Novelist & Poet who loves writing paranormal fantasy and magical realism, cross-genre fiction, syllabic poetry, and creative nonfiction. She loves all things magical which may mean that she could be experiencing her second childhood—or not. That part of her life hasn’t been fully decided yet. A few years ago, a mystical experience led her to renew her passion for writing and storytelling. These days she resides in the fantasy realm of the Faery Writer where she writes the magical poetry and stories that the fairy nymphs whisper to her in her dreams. Colleen won the “Little and Laugh” Flash Fiction Contest sponsored by the Carrot Ranch Literary Community on November 2017, and in 2018, she won first place for the “Twisted Travel” category. Colleen lives in Arizona with her husband. When she is not writing, Colleen enjoys spending time with her husband. She also loves gardening, reading, and crocheting old-fashioned doilies into works of art. Learn more about Colleen on colleenchesebro.com.

  2. Beautiful photo and words!

  3. Colleen, I am humbled and honoured by your lovely comments. Thank you so much for entering each week, I always look forward to seeing your posts.
    Your haiku is magical, nature is definitely the most skilled artist – but you have captured it! 🙂 <3

  4. I’ve never seen it before. Gorgeous. Thanks!

  5. I like this plant and makes a delightful whimsical picture.

  6. I love this Colleen. That flower reminds me of a bush my parents had in their garden when I was growing up. Always enjoyed reading near these flowers.

  7. That’s beautiful, Colleen! 🙂 I hope that the polar vortex doesn’t wreak havoc on the citrus crop this year.

    • Me too! Oranges have been expensive here lately! I see that by Friday we will be cold as all blazes again. Tuesday it will be 75 degrees F. and we are off to spend a few hours on the beach. We have a deserted stretch we visit. Should be spectacular.
