I said goodbye to the garden this afternoon. The sky is a clear blue, there is a chill in the air and frost/freeze warnings are in effect for tonight. I walked back to the house with a huge bowl of colorful Swiss chard, a bucket of flowers for an arrangement and my dear friend Barbara’s poem “Journey into Autumn” on my mind.. She lived her life in the mountains of Virginia and her poem celebrates the beauty that is nature’s journey through this part of the never-ending cycle.
Freezing temperatures don’t mark the end of the journey into Autumn. There is still lots of color and beautiful Autumn days to enjoy!
