STILL Hanging On
Temperatures are dropping. Heaters are on. Jackets and coats have started making their way into the closet. The weather app says it's 30 degrees outside and I dare not walk out to testify.
Trees all around are changing their look for the season. Adorning their red-orange-yellow attires to get dressed for Fall but things in my little patio garden are STILL the same. The greens are STILL green and the flowers are STILL blooming.
Not for long, I know! Sigh!! And it kinda breaks my heart to think of seeing my plants wither in the cold, harsh weather but while they are STILL hanging on, I decided to grab the camera and the coat, put on my socks and slip on my Dearfoams; and click to capture the glory of this fall bloom, before it's gone to be replaced by gloom.
The thought of losing these beauties that I have loved all through these months, is terrible but then, there is the snow flakes dance performance to look forward to and the holidays and the comfort of sneaking into the blanket and the nose turning red with cold and the hot cuppas to sip on.
That is what the circle of life is all about- Making way for the other. Isn't it?
