late August
perennial gardens

all that has been achieved
colors of flowers
past for a time

plants green and rain
all that is present

and will renew
and return
another time

Poem today

The ferns are beautiful in the late afternoon light.

With all the work Karl has done in the yard, the view is more open. This week, he had to remove a lot of garlic mustard, which is invasive. Those weeds have to be thrown out in bags. Not a compost pile.
