Welcome to austinagrodolce … My family and I garden with more intention and enthusiasm than allocated budget or overall design plan. It shows. Wildlife populations don't seem to notice our lack of cohesive design, they just like the native plants here. It seems by growing local we've thrown out a welcome mat. Occasionally, we're surprised at who (and what) shows up.

October makes promises

I woke to a flash of light.  I held still, straining to hear what came after.  I fell back into sleep only to be stirred by the insistent drumming of water.

It was more than the absence of heat that drew me out.  A chill hangs in this shimmering morning, and with it a promise of changes to come.

A poem's fragment wrapped around me echoing my hand around my coffee.

"......It won't stay with you, but you'll remember that it felt like nothing else you've felt or something you've felt that also didn't last. ........."

Cat - thank you - that means a lot coming from you (I believe your blog demonstrates you truly have the soul of a poet).
