Change Of Season

Season changed by first light this morning. Frost took lingering nasturtiums, begonias and marigolds over night. We had enjoyed them a month and a week longer than the average first frost.

I expected to be sad with their leaving. I strolled the yard to see what remains.

But muted native grass sentries still stand after the strong winds of transition days.

Japanese maple, more protected than other trees with leaves around their base, still has leaves that now turn red.

Air could not be more cool and pure to breathe today; nor sky more blue.

We hope you get a chance to enjoy this new season day.
