September Greetings!

“I love best to have each thing in its season, doing without it at all other times.”

 Henry David Thoreau

As much as I long for the gifts of my garden in the silent, white, winter months, like Thoreau, I, too, prefer to have each thing in its season.  For if I had bright flowers growing outside my door every day of the year I would not have the joy of finding acorns nestled in the grass at the foot of the oak that grows in the field.  Nor would I see hoar frost lacing the branches of the old crab apple trees.  And I would have to forfeit the smell of leaves mouldering along the edge of the woods and rose hips brightening in the thicket.  I would have to do without pumpkins and cornstalks and a hearty fire crackling on the grate.  And that just wouldn’t do...

"As long as this exists…and I may live to see it, this sunshine, the cloudless skies, while this lasts, I cannot be unhappy…  As long as this exists, and it certainly always will, I know that then there will always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be. And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.”

“The Diary of a Young Girl,” Anne Frank
