Blooms in the fall garden, like a quiet moment after feverish excitement, are noticed and felt.
Walking peaceful paths, alone but not alone, rejuvenates. Robins cover the callicarpa and winterberry bushes. Berries seem more profuse this year. Some say it’s a sign of a harsh winter. We hope not.
Shorter days at season’s end make dahlia and rose blossoms iridescent and precious.
