Life moves pretty fast

Day 24: “Life moves pretty fast, if you don’t stop and take a look around once in a while you might miss it.”

Fall is my favorite season.  I welcome that comfy clothes transition from barely there, to “do not care” (about the hair on my legs).   Leaves transform from chlorine green to the most beautiful shades of red/orange/yellow, I have ever seen.  Bonfires at night are a big delight.  And the world just seems to quiet down as the long days are fleeting.  My gardening days are done and the plants fall happily into hibernation.  Months of sleep and reflection are upon me. Life feels calm.

Fast forward to spring.  A fresh start approaches.  Days become longer.  Buds on plants arrive.  The garden begins to show signs of rebirth.  Even when the cold temperatures remain, spring reveals its resilience in the form of snowdrops, crocus, and the early bird daffodils of the season.  As I backed my car out of the garage this morning, I glanced to the left and saw a beauty before me!  I snapped a quick pic, and made a promise to myself to walk about the gardens this evening. A sense of awe and wonderment arose, as I took in all of the signs that my spring garden had sprung!  Ahhh and cheers to new beginnings and fresh starts. I am ready for it!

  1. Autumn is also my favorite season. I am not a fan of spring due to its false starts and demands for joy and renewal. Too much! However, the quiet beauty of quiet rebirth cannot be denied. Thanks for sharing!
