Season of Harvest.

Some relish the crisp air, the change of colors on the leaves and are happy but me?  Well, I often look ahead to bitter cold, often enough snow to make going anywhere miserable…and cold, did I say cold?  I’m a solar powered person I don’t like short days either.  Judging my options here makes things clear:  enjoy the day or be depressed…I chose to enjoy the season…there’s fruit for each one really…spiritually for sure.  Our peppers are showing real progress againDSC02741.  They don’t seem depressed at winter’s distant approach…these produce their own heat even if the days are cooling downDSC02742.  There’s a lesson to be learned here.  Attitude from within can make what’s going on without a lot more tolerableDSC02743.  The flowers aren’t any less bright todayDSC02744.  No, they are blessed for today…openly showing their joyDSC02747.  The pods behind our fence insist on living day by dayDSC02748.  Thistles take it a step further…protecting their blooms with an ‘I dare you’ attitudeDSC02749.  I like what there is to learn out there.  The still small voice is speaking to anyone willing to listenDSC02750.  Bloom today for tomorrow will take care of itselfDSC02751.

    1. I don't know how your cold and snow compares to ours...my first experience -40 below zero with a couple feet of snow sort of did me in ;)

  3. Beautiful plants. Your so right. Though I'm in no rush for the winter season, it is so much better to enjoy the fall. The beautiful colors the Lord will paint with are a sight for the eyes to see.

  4. You are what you think as Wayne Dyer says. Attitude makes or breaks. Your choice.
    I wish you a wonderful Fall.

    1. These peppers have had some sun without a doubt...they have done surprisingly well in spite of my usually black thumb. Getting out is good...now if it weren't for people and their annoying dogs I'd be set for life.
