Let It Be

in other news...canadians go to the polls on october 14. the election was called either yesterday or earlier today, i don't know which. so for the next just a bit over a month we'll have something in common...way too much politics.

i'm hoping that the backlash happening to bush and his cronies will rebound on harper and he won't get in again (least of all on a majority government - which would be dreadful). he's such a bush toadie.

I meant to ask you... would you mind if we link to each other.
You'll still be on my read list.

Delightful! :)

There is something heartbreaking about that little leaf, its edges green, the rest of it orange and afire with the last life of Summer. Beautiful, Greg, like the rest of your garden and the sentiments you've shared through your garden.

It looks very satisfied. Full and expressive, having said what it came to say. Beautiful.

Treat yourself well today, dear gardener.

"At life's each call the heart must be prepared/ to take its leave and to commence afresh,/ courageously and with no hint of grief/ submit itself to other, newer ties./ A magic dwells in each beginning and/ protecting us it tells us how to live."

It's from H. Hesse. One of the most famous poems in German, I will try to find a better translation, I’s really great. Surely I’m not the only one who says honestly, his heart is with you.

Indeed, my friend. I'm ready for autumn, and some crisp, bracing air in my life. The rain has paused at the moment, but Hannah hangs heavy and damp on us. The change of season always triggers a desire for other changes with me. All the changes you have coming... again, 'let it be' indeed.

Hey guy. There is a blurb about you on my new blog post.

Sorry, I think I misunderstood your last comment. I do not know much about cultivating the Chilean Bellflower except that is likes shade and moist soil. I thought you were telling me you wanted to grow the blue morning glory..!?

Greg said...

Dykewife, I think we Americans are a little jealous of your shorter election cycle up there in the Great White North! Your elected officials must actually have some time to represent you!

Patsi, I'd love to do reciprocal links with you - be patient with me though, as my only internet connection at the moment is at work (sssh...). But I'll link you shortly!

Curt, that leaf was an amazing start to a pretty bittersweet day, but hopefully the last in a long line of those. As the season's turn, so do the pages in my story, he suggested mysteriously.

Martin, that's beautiful...and I loved the additional translation you sent along--I'll try to post it here sometime in the next day or so, as it's rather appropos.

Patrick, this tropical chick Hanna made my life pretty interesting today, or at least moist. I look forward to being hunkered down at the new digs (details shortly) with my kitty as she roars through later tonight!

HunkyG, thanks so much for the Award! (I've never gotten one with the word "Stud" in the title...heh!)

As for that comment, I think I was pondering just how lovely the red and white Chilean bellflowers would be rambling amongst some of those classic blue morning glories. I'm always pondering new patriotic flower arrangements for our summer holidays!

Those morning glorys just don't want to stop growing! More pinks on the way. It's neat how the blue morning glorys have taken on this "star" formation inside on its petals. And how apropo that the stars from the flag are behind them. :-)

Those Morning Glories are truly beautiful. I will look into planting them next spring.
