and I loved watching the large lovely flakes
softly float across and down onto the ground.
it never accumulated and it melted away quickly,
and even though the days have gotten much colder,
I still have a tomato vine, growing and crawling
wildly along the green house fence.
Ripe tomatoes along with green ones, still hanging on in
I gathered a good bunch for the day's lunch
The lantana, even though it is still green, knows that winter is
coming and now has it's green pods that soon will turn black.
I have no idea why they produce these.........they do not sprout
from these pods..........or perhaps, I am just not successful at
getting them to sprout that way
Yet, among the remaining green........the end of summer and
the time for everything to go into slumber, is starting to show up.
The oak tree out back has gone from vibrant orange
to a darker red........it's leaves are starting to fall.
The pomegranate tree leaves have all turned yellow and gold
So I finally bid farewell to summer
and enjoy the glow of the fireplace
as well as the cheery Christmas tree in the window.
Christmas is almost here.........
and I am ready for a table full of family.
How about you? Do you have a blanket of snow
in your yard? Is any plant still hanging on your gardens?
I would love to hear!
