Judy, I have a hard time imagining how your climate is different than mine. My colchicums all bloomed and went by long before the first snow fell here. And either you’ve had quite a bit more thaw than we have, or you’ve got X-ray vision! I certainly wouldn’t be able to see anything blooming underneath a foot or more of snow, which is what we’ve got on the ground right now.

If winter is slumber and spring is birth, and summer is life, then autumn rounds out to be reflection. It’s a time of year when the leaves are down and the harvest is in and the perennials are gone. Mother Earth just closed up the drapes on another year and it’s time to reflect on what’s come before.
