"AUTUMN CARRIES MORE GOLD IN ITS HAND THAN ANY OTHER SEASON." ~JIM BISHOP~
"THE DAYS MAY NOT BE SO BRIGHT AND BALMY-YET THE QUIET AND MELANCHOLY LINGER AROUND THEM IS FRAUGHT WITH GLORY. OVER EVERYTHING CONNECTED WITH AUTUMN THERE LINGERS SOME GOLDEN SPELL-SOME UNSEEN INFLUENCE THAT PENETRATES THE SOUL WITH ITS MYSTERIOUS POWER." ~NORTHERN ADVOCATE~
Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day here in Southern Maine. Snow was melting, birds were singing, mud appearing. ( yes, a welcomed sight) Winslow once again could hurdle snowbanks.
This morning, this was the view outside my kitchen window. Yesterday was just a tease reality set in. Oh, but there is hope. I am hopeful in an few short months this will be the view outside my window, my lovely clematis. This is before the Japanese Beetle strike!
