September


September's light creates longer shadows.
The sun turns a deeper shade of gold.
The blue skies are intoxicating.
The earth is abundant with beauty.
Cool nights and warm days.
Let the goodness of September fill our hearts with gratitude.

Summer Glory


It's a joy to travel around my small, little town
and be surprised by the beauty of a patient gardener. 
Happy August!

The Seventh Month


July is suddenly coming to a close.
The days are shorter, 
The sun is strong.
The fawns are doubling in size. 
The garden is bountiful.
After a month of soaking rain,
the streams are gushing.
The baby birds have left their nests.
The fireflies are dancing with the moon.
All is good with the Earth.

When Winter Becomes Spring


When the leaves burst, the flowers bloom, the birds sing.
Color fills our world.
Happy May!

Sunday Morning

Contrary to previous years, 
It's been quiet in the Winter department this year.
The sky, trees and lawns are mostly grey.
Occasionally,
 a  Bluebird or a Cardinal will flutter by 
and make my heart happy. 
I'm grateful for the beautiful morning sunrise,
and the spectacular Winter sunsets.
The quiet of the woods,
the flicker of a candle,
the outrageous work of dedicated souls 
protecting our rights of the Constitution 
is what makes today a good one.

This was our front yard a few years back
On a snowy October morning.

Should The Fox Come Again To My Cabin In The Snow

Then,  the winter will have fallen all in white
and the hill will be rising to the north,
the night also rising and leaving,
dawn light just coming in, the fire out.

Down the hill running will come that flame
among the dancing skeletons of the ash trees.
I will leave the door open for him.

Happy New Year!

As the days become longer....
may your sun shine brighter,
may your clouds be fluffier, 
may your winds be gentle, 
and, 
may your hearts be content. 
Welcome, 2017!

Time

Time.
I need more.
It's mid-December.
I've been away from Petals and Boots since 
the end of October.
Where has the time gone?
When I search other blogs that aren't updated I wonder why.
Now I know.
so, as the month closes into a cold Winter season,
I hope I can find more time.
And I hope you come back to visit.
Thank you.

Happy October!

A little family life chapter closed yesterday. 
On to new beginnings for Mom.
You can sell the belongings, but you cannot sell the memories.

Almost October


The Summer of 2016 whizzed by. 
Seems like overnight the leaves turned golden,
the light dims earlier, 
the deer hides are darker,
 Earth has embraced Autumn.

Summer Is Flying By





I used to post on my blog daily.
Now, it's weeks before I write.
I think between Facebook, Instagram,
and life, my little blog gets
lost in the shuffle.
I've thought about stopping it all together, 
but I don't want to quit.
I hope somebody will stop by,
have a look, 
and feel better that they did.
The photos in this post are from July,
a month I will long remember.
Enjoy August, and thank you for stopping by!

And Now..., Today...

We have Summer!
I'm looking forward to the splendor of 
 long sunny days,
abundant bird songs,
 blue skies with puffy clouds,
fresh picked berries,
early morning sunrise,
fresh cut flowers,
Long motorcycle voyages,
But mostly....a short visit with
Sweet Harper,
and time spent in the ocean!
Happy Summer!
