October is here and the garden has taken on a new look. Most of the flowering is done, seed pods now cling where flowers once danced.
Still a few resilient blooms remain…
This one tarrying daisy sways, lovely in her perfection, undaunted that she stands alone.
A small burst of purple on the clamatis vine, a gentle reminder of what was.
“We should enjoy this summer, flower by flower, as if it were to be the last one we’ll see.” ~ André Gide
Autumn has arrived. There is a new coolness to our morning walks, the landscape now tinted with yellow and orange.
This time of year we share the field with many geese.
Can I mom?
Go for it!
After Lacie’s walk it is Coco’s turn… more a study in meditation than anything else. My sweet old man turned 15 this past January. He is deaf and his vision is poor… but his enjoyment is 100%.
“Some of our greatest treasures we place in museums. Others we take for walks.”
