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.

I never thought I’d EVER look forward to mud, but this year may just be the exception. 🙂 Can’t wait to see some of those spring blooms here.

Very carefully chosen and sited snowdrops–that is the key.
