My 11 year old said it best... "The trees are naked" (excepting the beech and oak trees, which are typically among the last to shed their autumnal cloaks). Ernie Brake of Brake Landscaping & Lawn Care (North Sutton, NH) and of Kezar Lake Running Club fame, encourages land and home owners to use leaf and grass clippings for perennial beds and lawn covers. Not only does this practice feed the perennials, it's also healthy for the soil (and, a GREAT reason to procrastinate a portion of that fall clean-up!)

The fashion designer Alexander McQueen’s Fall/Winter 2007 collection In Memory of Elizabeth How, 1692 was based on research into his ancestor Elizabeth How, one of the first women to be condemned and hanged as a witch in July 1692. McQueen’s work reclaims How’s power and memory from the false accusation that led to her unjust execution. He also mined historic symbols of witchcraft, paganism, religious persecution, and magic as potent inspiration for his fashion design.

A Contemplation

A few summers ago Sally planted a trumpet vine in our planters by our front door. This year, we barely noticed the cluster of leaves rising up... until the white trumpet flowers began to blossom in early fall. How could this be? We had neither planted nor nourished... yet there were two plants, one on either side of the door, beneath the planters which once held their former generation.

Rising once again... the seeds carried on from a plant we had already forgotten.

Then we remembered.

I followed the stem back to the ground, as I knew the planters were set on concrete and tar... and there, in a place that one would hardly consider a place that lends itself to life in this way, a tiny crack between pavement and concrete. Enough to provide the tiniest opportunity to the most... extraordinary plant.

Stubborness? Determination?

Life astonishes me every day in its wonder, and in its magic

As Khalil Gibran once wrote so eloquently,

the epitome of "Life longing for itself."
