Sneak peeks of past lovely weddings by Stephanie ⤸
“I prefer winter and Fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape-the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn’t show. “
“Let us love winter, for it is the spring of genius.“
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 for their yearly game of who is the last to float, scatter and fall to the frozen earth . Branches thin into emaciated scarecrow-like appendages who long for a fine blanket of snow as the last leaves finally grow weary and let go and become the ‘crunch’ beneath our boots – 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 winter days of our extraordinary, ordinary lives with fresh cuttings of the most magnificent flora Mother Nature has to offer this season.
