Aging beautifully

The African violets on my windowsill have stopped setting out new flowers and are concentrating on making seed pods, leaving their petals to corrode and fade. And even the age spots turned out to be beautiful, when I stopped to really look at them.

A hint of yellow in a cave of purple petals.

The green hairy bulbs, with their tall brown stalks, are the growing seed pods.

Deep purple, fading to baby pink.

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
