9/11. Somber reflections on transformative events of our lifetimes. This day was a big one. Thoughts & prayers to everyone who was touched my the massive losses of that day.
In our gardens, we lose a tree, a perennial, a shrub... every now and then. It is sad or disappointing and we do everything we can to insure 100% success but things happen. It's not the end of the world. We say "there's always next year", and I have to say that, by late July, I'm usually looking foreword to Spring (next year).
I LOVE fall, I really love fall. The temperatures are mild, the seed collecting is plentiful, the colors are magnificent and the "guests" are mostly gone (the mountains are OURS again)... but I still love spring more. Planting perennials, bulbs, shrubs and trees in fall is a hope and a prayer that these brown blobs or bare sticks will do, something... and in spring, there is real magic! Those brown blobs produce daffodil flowers and the bare twigs proliferate with leaves and blossoms and pure JOY!
