… purples, pinks, whites and especially greens. In fact, most any colour you can think of.
While those of you in cooler climes enjoy the brilliant colouring of leaves to mark the change of seasons, my garden continues to produce riotous colour in flowers and foliage year round.
Winter is a subtler visitor in the sub tropics; colour still abounds but growth slows, deciduous plants like my gingers die off, to gather strength for the spring.
I feel this shift too. Recent wet weather and chilly mornings, set off my nesting instincts. No, I’m not thinking in terms of egg-laying, more a case of hunkering down for a rest. I can feel the sap slowing in my veins. Perhaps, I have a case of winter blues?
That’s why I will take a break from posting for a couple of weeks; to rest and renew, to refill my creativity well.
Like water, we are truest to our nature in repose.
In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer. Albert Camus
