Sweet Decay

For all that lives, is subject to that law:

All things decay in time, and to their end do draw.

– Edmund Spenser

I love the way colours of hollyhocks deepen into blue when the bloom withers.

The current Daily Prompt: Connect the Dots, is to open the nearest book at page 82, and work the third full sentence on the page into a post. The nearest book was the Oxford Book of English Verse edited by Helen Gardner, and the quote from The Faerie Queen.
