Out of the Ground, Into the Ground--Endings and Beginnings

Autumn is about endings...the endings of the warm season, gardens, foliage, light. But too, it is about beginnings.

A wagon load of purple cone flower
Dug up by a neighbor, a gift of purple coneflowers from her overgrown garden. An ending, but think of the beauty in my garden next summer.

Seeds from a buttercup squash

Baked up a delicious buttercup squash, in the oven. A gift from the Farmer's Market. And now the seeds are drying, to be planted in the spring..another beginning.

Bulbs from Holland
A gift in the mail....bulbs to go into the ground at the end of the season, for delightful signs of beginnings of a new season.

The Wheel of the Year turns.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, Robin. You have some beautiful photos here and I, like you, see autumn as a season of beginnings too. x

Thank you, Robin, for the wonderful reminder that new life always follows apparent death! I'm now itching to place an order to Holland myself!:) What a lovely (and tempting!!)picture of the bulbs you received! All of the photos are great, in fact.
