at last.

so it begins. 
slowly. 
inconspicuously. 
in soft tiny buds. 
a new season of growth.

A lovely photo.

We are into autumn now - the weather has cooled somewhat (at least overnight) and the deciduous trees are just beginning to turn. The Japanese anemones are in bud with a few flowers. The bergenias are flowering early (they usually flower in winter). The nerines put on a good show about a week ago but it's over now.

it's as though the land itself exhales slowly, expands...after all those cold months of tensed muscles, layers of swaddling. beautiful, chris!

Isn't it wonderful? All around me things are getting green. I love it.

I saw a few buds this week and thought the same thing. At last!

...then we got a snowstorm.

I linked this over at Kate's Library in my "Friday Five". Have a great weekend!

I have pussy willows on my dining table right now ... I so look forward to their arrival each year ... two robins in the yard earlier this week ... and birds singing when I went out to lunch today. My heart and soul are smiling!
