A Moment In Time

IMG_1469A moment in time…that’s all we have.  A garden is such a close reflection of life.  For a while, mine seemed to be holding back on autumn.  Now suddenly, it’s here with a flurry of orange leaves scattered on the lawn, our last apples about to fall and the quince waiting to be picked.  The days have changed so fast from azure sunny skies right up until the beginning of October; but now the mornings are frosty and just a few flowers dot the borders.  Summer is a memory and there’s talk that next week might bring snow.
