so long little friends...

I do so dislike the farewells of this time of year.
When the decision is made to not cover the plants -
to let the frost come.
good byes are said in the first morning light
when their passing is mixed with magic
with sparkle
with frosty glitter

Farewell all my little friends.
I will miss you so...

Do you cry too?

Near the end of August I am pretty fed up with watering my flowers so by this time of the year they're all looking a little worse for wear & tear. It makes it much easier to give them the heave-ho. No crying, just a lot of grumbling about raking leaves. And putting the lawn furniture away. And clearing out the garage so the car will fit. Evidently I'm quite a grumbler.

Oh Barb...of course.
And do so make me smile.


Jani said... a baby! I'm getting too old for this "frozen tundra" stuff, and I haven't found a suitable substitute for my screen porch reading spot in the winter.

Yes I cry :-{ I appreciate my snapdragons for holding in there well into now, even the odd head pops up to say hello.

I love flowers, I love green, and I like the first few snows but then... it tend to go one far too long here in New England.

Would love to have you pop over and say hi!

Jani....I know you cry too.
Lorraine -- welcome & yes, I will stop over with a "hi".
