Change is afoot

The sun is staying lower in the sky now, the days are getting shorter and shorter and growth in the garden has slowed down or stopped. The garden is constantly changing throughout the year but in the fall the changes seem to be the most dramatic and a little bittersweet. These last brilliant colors signal the end of the season but also the time to start preparing for the next one.

Not just in the garden, but in all aspects of our lives, seasons come and go; we thrive, we languish, we grow, we carry on. A garden is a place to witness the effects of time and to learn to accept them. Compost from the plants that have died will nurture new growth in the spring, and so the cycle continues.
