My yard is split into rooms/gardens….the first one (as you drive in) is what I call the
corral garden, then moving around the wood pile and the picket fence is the bird station feeding area, next the sidewalk garden (which I am going change next spring–I’m tired of weeding it),
followed by the East Gardens
Then moving to the west of the house is the large sundial garden full of, now frozen, 4 O’clocks,and then hidden between the tile house and the mechanics shed is a little spot of tranquility.
It’s a delightful little place; perfect for silence and solitude, sometimes something hard to come by…but here they are within reach
While I was sitting in the gentle dying of the day, Sunday, I looked up at the remaining leaves of the Apricot tree and saw a little bird-shaped leaf
Tilting my head back a little further I saw a heart-shaped leaf. The dwindling sunlight was the most beautiful apricot shading into orange I had not seen for awhile.
It was so beautiful I used it for my headers yesterday. If you look closely you can see the heart just above the bird…
Quietness, stillness, rest— this space is fill with solitude, gentle softly falling leaves and the silence of Autumn trembling on the edge of winter.
A beautiful place of peace!
From my world to your heart,
