The Garden Sleeps

This is the time of year when our garden nods off; normally on walks there are always new things to see... but here at the tag end of summer, the garden is taking a short (and well-earned) siesta. Soon it will awaken with the cooling nights and (hopefully) soaking fall rains; the colchicums will raise their ghostly blooms from the soil, and everywhere the cyclamens will put up crisp new leaves... the garden will go down with all its guns blazing into the wintry sea.

That makes me want to sigh... :)
 
Nancy... It's bittersweet, that's for sure.
