It happened last weekend.
The inevitable, as surely as night follows day follows night.
A cloudless sky allowed the cold to penetrate the Fairegarden and gather around the blooming things.
Some flowers will bounce back as the warmth returns.
Some will continue to stand tall, slightly withered but still beautiful.
Some were just beginning to reach their full potential, cut down much too soon.
Some have provided many months of happy color and bright stamens for visiting pollinators.
Adieu, mon chéri, parting is such sweet sorrow.
Some we were not ready to release.
And for some, the touch of frost only enhanced their appearance.
