22 Mar Autumn is coming
That last flush of autumn blooms are happening. Plants in the garden are sensing that a new season is coming and are going out with a bang. They are putting the last bit of effort in, dressing up and showing their colours, getting ready to shed their leaves and retreat back to the inside.
Over the weekend we experienced wind that we haven’t had for a long time. My iceberg roses blew all their petals off, like a guest throwing confetti at a wedding. White petals now decorate our lawn area.
The trees will soon change in colour and the beautiful Dahlias will come to an end.
As autumn rain is here today, i can see the earth soaking it in, feeling refreshed. The new seedlings planted around the garden and veggie patch, being touched by the rain is a relief.
My family are farmers, so our lives revolve around the weather and seasons. With having no break/ holiday over the summer period, or really the whole of last year, our household is feeling it. Thank fully the Easter school holiday break is upon us, and i do hope we get to recharge. There are beautiful weddings to create for, and many other balls to juggle.
THERE IS NOTHING IN NATURE THAT BLOOMS ALL YEAR ROUND- SO DONT EXPECT YOURSELF TO DO SO.
On this rainy morning, coffee in hand, i picked a few buckets of Dahlias and roses, enjoyed seeing puddles and came to the realisation that its time for a break. And thats ok. Thats what seasons are for.
