Autumn is a time of frantic industriousness....a rush of preparation for winter.
Here we've been lucky enough to have had a wonderful season
and everything has flourished in abundance, especially the weeds!
In the garden my cosmos, which I have grown for the very first time, are attracting the bees.
Their buzzing is incessant and their busyness admirable.
But busyness can sometimes mask what's important...
lull us into thinking we are doing what we should be when we're not.
Time to take a breath, smell the flowers, listen to the hum,
feel the chill in the air and the pull of something more urgent,
that just maybe we are letting slip by, or choosing to ignore.
