I have to admit that this past week has been a hard one for me.
There have been many things which has made it so, but a huge factor would have to be the weather.
(Am I the only one he gets ``down`` when it`s continually miserable.....)
We had a very heavy frost a few mornings which left everything looking like this:
My 8 foot sunflowers all wilted up and fell over.
The colors seem gone from everywhere.
The garden nothing but a soggy, droopy mess.
I KNOW one should not base happiness on surroundings, but I so wanted at least my Sunflowers to take me into the fall, waving their big yellow, lazy heads at me from the garden.
I have been feeling like this,
Could we only get a good day of warm sun, blue sky, fluffy clouds (if any)....just for ONE day a week....
A thought hit me as I sadly looked out at the garden I have yet to harvest....if there is anything to harvest at all.....
To everything there is a Season.
A time to sow...and a time to reap.
A time for bad weather, (and as though it feels it will never come again)....a time for good weather.
Seasons come and go. There is a time for everything under the sun.
Seasons aren`t supposed to stay.
For a few minutes last week somewhere in between the frosty gray mornings- and windy, pelting rain evening.....we were able to capture color.
A ``season`` of color.
Not quite sure how long a season will last...but I guess you grab the moment of one as it passes by.
Wishing you a Happy Week ahead, regardless of what season you may be in.
There is a time for everything.
