I just learned that “aphid” is the plural of “aphis” from Jungle Jim at Scenic Nursery. “Aphids” is apparently incorrect, although it is so widespread I bet at least some dictionaries include it as acceptable.
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.
