This is my last Summer Ramblings, as fall starts next Wednesday.
But we who garden don't need to consult a calendar to know when fall has come. All we need to do is look outside. The shortening days are obvious. The angle of the sun is changing. Nature is sending forth the signals of change.
It is time to prepare mentally for winter. I love the season of growing, of plentiful produce at the markets. But, in six weeks or less, the first snows will be blowing in on the wings of winds that will chill us to the bone. Then nature will fall asleep, confident in a belief that spring will come again, one day.
Then, the cycle will begin again.
This is my 12th post for the #Septemberchallenge, hosted by Everyday Gyaan.
