Late summer

The corn in the field on my way to work is tall. So are the weeds. Everything looks green. You can smell the green as you walk. But the browns are there too.


Plants going from bloom to seed. Leaves curling under. Squirrels collecting acorns. Wait. Acorns on the ground, that’s new.


Burdock, aster, jewelweed, perrenial sunflower. I am learning the plants around me again. Like meeting old friends in a new location. We, plants and humans, are preparing for fall. It’s coming. And I can’t wait to get some more knitting time too.
