🐾 Maybe the reason I love animals so much, is because the only time they have broken my heart is when theirs has stopped beating.

Autumn's whisper

Each flower is a soul blossoming out to nature.
- Gerard De Nerval


Anais Nin said, "A leaf fluttered in through the window this morning, as if supported by the rays of the sun, a bird settled on the fire escape, joy in the task of coffee, joy accompanied me as I walked." That's how I felt as I walked through my garden this morning. We had beautiful rain last night and everything was sparkling and clean.

Autumn has begun to whisper to all the trees and flowers, reminding them ever so gently with a little nudge here and a word of encouragement there, that time is getting short and that they must hurry with their last blossoms. I've potted some of my Nasturtiums to take them inside so that I can enjoy them a bit longer, keep the feeling of summer a bit closer. It's also time to bring my Bonsai and any other frost-tender plants inside, so I'm enjoying getting the Flower Room ready for their arrival.



  1. Lovely photo, Maree. It's so strange to read of you preparing for fall and winter, while we are all willing Spring to arrive soon. here.

    1. Hi Kathryn! Yes, I know, and I agree - strange but lovely to read warm summer posts when it's freezing here (and vice versa!)
