Autumn ❂ Vibes

“Autumn shows us how beautiful it is to let things go”

“How beautifully leaves grow old. How full of light and color are their last days.

John Burrows

I feel lucky to be a Marylander. We’re fortunate to see the seasons bleed into one another while our landscape gradually shifts around us. Trees grow obese with succulent emerald leaves as wild weeds creep, hug and swallow their neighbors in an evergreen climbing ivy, that creates a jungle suburbia that line our rural roads.

The Summer sun yawns, tired and desperate to cling to the hot heavy air, but eventually succumbs, tucking herself into a deep sleep within the Maryland horizon. Sighing deeply, with the Earth breathing steadily around her, she saturates the grass in a quilt of evening dew. She wakes and spreads her yellow rays, which zigzag and pierce through openings in black-out curtains, shyly casting elongated geometrical shapes that creep up bedroom walls, beckoning us to rise and shine.

The air now grows drier, chillier, yet somehow sweeter. Burnt orange and mustard yellow leaves prepare to float in their traditional dance of scatter and fall. Before we know it, leaves will crunch beneath our boots and branches will thin into emaciated scarecrow-like arms who long for a fine blanket of snow. It’s always the time of the season.

Get outside and fill those lungs deep with that freshly chilled air. Try, try, try to focus on the now, while enjoying all the little beautiful things this season has to offer us; maybe then eventually the rest will fall into place.

Stephanie and her Secret Garden Flower Shop is here to enhance and revivify these autumn days of our extraordinary, ordinary lives with fresh cuttings of the most magnificent flora Mother Nature has to offer this season.
