Reflections on the changing seasons, and harvesting the gifts.
What a beautiful beach photo. I am loving all the flowers and seeds this season brings.
I have so enjoyed catching up with the onset of autumn in New Zealand with all the unusual plants that you have whilst we are opening up into spring. Your thoughts and action on the tragedies in Christchurch and now Japan so well encapsulate how I have been feeling but could not put so eloquently. I love the beach picture and the trio in the centre. Beautiful.
'Making the most of it' was certainly the theme for Wednesday here in Central Otago too. We lay in the sun for a while (perhaps the last salute to the summer past), and even as the sun drenched and warmed us, our large old walnut tree gave us a background soundscape as the ripening nuts fell regularly, swishing through the tree foliage and thumping onto the ground or clunking onto the tin roof of our garden shed - nature's percussion. It was beautiful, and set my mind to planning all manner of walnut recipes! Ruth P
Thank you Marilyn, Anne and Ruth. I love the image of the walnuts falling.
