Pause


Autumn unfolds quite slowly in my garden. The virginia creeper has lost nearly all its leaf. The big old sugar maple is turning a week or so later than usual. Over the road at the park the liquid ambers are colouring up nicely. Other than that everything seems to be holding it's breath, waiting so I am going to wait too and show some of the plants that don't need autumn to show interesting colour.

We planted this varigated maple in the space where a weeping maple expired during the drought. Thus far it's hanging in nicely.

Reflection:
Isaiah 40:31 (King James Version)
"But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."

  1. The variegation is gorgeous, Joan. It looks as though it is bubbling up out of the more complete leaf. You have a most delightful garden. Is it nicer now that you are there more often to wallow in it?

  2. At the moment I am still not getting out into it much ... the startup phase of the new job is quite intense ... however, it is lovely to be able to look out on it instead of city buildings, especially in the bright autumn weather we have been having over the past few days.
