October Blooms

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

Scenes From a Dog Walk

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.”
