image-015How wonderful to step outside this morning and really feel a little coolness in the air- can’t quite call it a chill yet, even though Scout was trembling a little by the time we stepped back inside after our walk.

My spiderlilies and Confederate roses are blooming, and I’m enjoying them while I can. It will be time to cut back the rosebush and give away the pieces, and the lilies will go back to sleep til next year.

The Fall

The abundant, redundant season.
Ushering in the winter, like an appetizer before the big meal.
Just a taste of what is to come.
Beautiful and temporary.

Leaves dying, revealing their true selves.
Falling, soft at first, then dry and fragile.
Beautiful and temporary.

Temperatures falling, days shortening,
Sunshine fading, slowly, readying the whole world for rest.
Beautiful and temporary.
