This is a David inspired post. He commented on my post about what brown does for me:
"Everywhere I look this time of year there are seeds, the fruits of the summer. They hold the next generation, awaiting the warmth of spring. Some are very photogenic."
And he is right. I like to believe that gardens have bones which are especially visible this time of year. I took great glory in spending a great deal of time on Sunday sitting in my own garden, studying it's skeleton, wondering what kind of meat will be added to the bones come Spring.
About Annie: Someone mentioned to me that I haven't photographed Annie much lately. Fact is, I have. But because she is never still, my photos are always of Annie as a blur, blob, or smear. I swear she wags her tail while sleeping:)
This weekend she discovered the Choose n Cut Christmas tree farm over yonder ridge on her own. I was at the ASU football game while she was happily helping families pick out their seasonal greenery. Unfortunately, she scared a little boy and the owner of the farm had to chain her up. Like the good neighbor he is, he called me. As I cleared the rhodo tunnel that separates our property, the first thing I saw was her tail, wagging as Choose n Cut visitors walked by. She loves the farm and so I'm sure she'll be delighted to return when we walk over there this weekend to purchase our tree. Maybe, just maybe, I'll get photos of her.
