It was, as I have said, a fine autumnal day; the sky was clear and serene, and nature wore that rich and golden livery which we always associate with the idea of abundance. The forests had put on their sober brown and yellow, while some trees of the tenderer kind had been nipped by the frosts into brilliant dyes of orange, purple, and scarlet.... As Ichabod jogged slowly on his way, his eye... ranged with delight over the treasures of jolly autumn. ~Washington Irving, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"

In Search of my Mother's Garden, I Found My Own

"This very act of planting a seed in the earth
has in it to me something beautiful.
I always do it with a joy that is largely mixed with awe."
-Celia Thaxter-

Your garden is so peaceful. I can't believe your basil, and that wine barrel, filled with wildflowers with the foothills in the distance. Makes me heartsick for Amador County. I miss my peach tree!

I am so envious, in AZ at the moment everything is fried! And in CO, it's just a jungle, er, a forest I mean, but it IS lovely & green up there.

um I would like to sit in that lovely wicker chair and bask in the fun of watching all the critters and admiring the garden. It's just plain lovely, afterwards you can offer your home made cookies and some thing nice to drink and then we will blab on for hours until the prospector just gives up and turns in for the night. A good garden and cookies can do that you know.
