I had been seeing the signs for a couple of weeks. A little turned leaf there, a hint of chill in the air. Then I found it underfoot, on my early morning walk.
I came home to notice the new fall crop of lettuce had crested the lip of the wagon. Time to harvest some greens for a salad, maybe a sandwich. This crop won’t last long.
The last of the chard was also pushing out their most beautiful leaves thus far.
The grasses were dancing in Autumn’s light.
And the Autumn Joy sedum was in full bloom.
I walked along the path of the front garden, noticing the grasses were still holding on to the early morning rain and the Japanese Maple began dropping its seed pods on the path.
The Persecaria had pushed out its fall color.
A walk around Greenlake offered evidence of a change of season.
As did the shopping village in the University District.
Fall has come and we in the Northwest must pay attention, for in this part of the world it moves fast. The rains come too quickly to wash away Autumn’s beauty. And so, I want to bear witness to it all, documenting as much as I can. To be here, in this moment… it is an honor.
Bless you all for stopping by. I hope that where ever you are in the world, you are enjoying all the mother nature has to offer. You are a witness.
