Autumn Splendor Out My Window
Most of the perennials have had their moment and the last of the annuals are ready to cash it in. But autumn is still a brilliant and beautiful season in the St. Clare Healing Garden. Fiery red burning bushes, jewel-tone mums, autumn joy sedums, and tall, plum-colored native grasses bring color and texture to the fall gardenscape. I'm blessed to say that that is the view from my office window. Even when I'm deep into a project, it's hard not to turn my chair to the window for just a glimpse of the beauty each season presents in the Healing Garden. Just a moment of looking out into the garden grounds me and reminds me of the striking and subtle rhythms of life and where I fit into them.
