Sudden fall

I was outside for just a few minutes today, taking some very sad pictures of the garden melting. The wind is blowing through the trees, shaking the browned leaves and making them sound like a stream flowing. The sounds of the trees letting these leaves go is nearly constant. All the maples are brown or bare with no difference between the Big Leafs and the Vines. It’s been a very sudden switch, less than 2 weeks ago these leaves were green without a hint of yellow. There’s a lot of talk around the severity of the winter to come with the very strage way the spring and summer behaved. We’re braced and ready with a snowplow in the garage just in case.

I cannot help but be a little envious of this. Despite that I will love that I can garden year round, etc., there is something so relentless about weather that promises continuous productivity if you desire it I miss that feeling of being shut down, out of my hands.

I don't know if that makes sense.

I know what you mean, that feeling of resting and coming back for spring is what keeps me coming back. The months between January and March to get excited to garden are crucial for me.

Although I wouldn't mind stealing some of your sun, if only to get some ripe tomatoes!
