INSPIRATION: The Seasons

In the part of the world where I live, we have four distinct seasons. Each has it’s own mood and characteristics.

Spring is cool, rainy and lush with its new growth after the long harsh winter. Summer is green and typically dryer than Spring, except for this year, as there has been an abundance of rain. In Autumn, plants and trees are slowing down their growth process and preparing for dormancy. Winter is cold and barren, yet beautiful in it’s starkness. And in the past few years it has been purty-darn snowy.

Right now, Summer is beginning to fade into Autumn. Soon the garden centers will be filled with mums, cornstalks, pumpkins and gourds to welcome the next season. Summer wildflowers are being replaced with goldenrod, wild asters and chicory. A few of the black tupelo trees are beginning to show the colors they will bear for the next few months. And the warm lazy days of summer are giving way to cooler days and nights.

I look forward to the change of seasons. From Spring’s rebirth to Summer’s abundance, to the vibrance of Autumn and the beauty of Winter…each season brings a renewed fascination for me.

    We have four distinct seasons here by Lake Michigan in Wisconsin too. I try and picture some moments in poetry.

    Thank You Ellen, some of the trees are just now starting to show their colors. Nature is a poem…she always has wonderful things to say.
