Do you know why the caged rose sings?

Why does the caged rose sing?

 

 

This week as the roses are making one last glorious stand against the imminent winter,  I have been running around the yard cheering them on.   Today’s bright chill and tonight’s impending freeze threatens to squeeze the life right out of them.  A surrendered rose is such a sad (though still beautiful) sight.  But tonight we gather close tonight around the fire.

Nickel “You Can Call Me Flower if You Want to” Kitty

Flowers: Free from God.

Farm time has been sparse this month.  More busy-away-things have been crammed into the days than the days can well hold.  Maybe more on that later. Or maybe not.

For now one must settle for fleeting glimpses of seasonal delights…

…like caterpillars in their Halloween costumes feasting on parsley,
