Signs of autumn

mornings are cool and dewy again, optimistic, orange and red marigolds nestled with pink zinnias and gomphrena, the mint trails with one last blooming, the delicata squash have all been harvested, the last of the green beans are picked, we are beginning to gather the first leaves of arugula, spinach, and radishes from the fall garden, peppers are abundant, green tomatoes hang on the vine and we wonder if they will ripen, ash seeds cover the stairs, a few yellow leaves fall, squirrels busily bury walnuts, windows are open and the skies are bright blue, night arrives at 7:30.


  1. evocative. really wonderful, heather. enjoy it.

  2. this blog makes me wish i had a garden. lovely photo and words. it's like a poem.

  3. Beautiful shot and complimentary writing. Night at 7:30 takes some getting used to though.
