Bloom Day, September

Sweet Autumn Clematis

There are moments in a garden. Small quiet places full of wonder and power. They are easy to miss-- gardens are one of the "macros" of our lives. We tend to drink them in large gulps, instead of sipping and tasting. Even gardeners, down in the dirt, with the plants in our faces, sometimes miss these moments as we plow through the worms or collect the harvest, or even just follow the task list, trying to get done before it rains.

Bloom Day is a day for moments. So here are my September moments. No tasks, no meals, no panoramas. Small, quiet places where color and scent take over.

  1. So many beautiful blooms providing a number of "small, quiet places." You have a lot still blooming for September, but the Sweet Autumn clematis has to be one of my favorites. Despite all the tasks to be done, the garden is one place where I take the time to simply enjoy and reflect. Happy Bloom Day!
