WELCOME SWEET SEPTEMBER! (Garden Bloggers' Muse Day) ~ 'INTRICATE AND LOVELY' (Hydrangea macrophylla)
"A dead hydrangea is as intricate and lovely as one in bloom."
~ Toni Morrison
I have loved flowers that fade,
Within those magic tents,
Rich hues have marriage had made,
With sweet memoried scents.
(Robert Seymour Bridges)
But now in September the garden has cooled,
and with it my possessiveness.
The sun warms my back instead of beating on my head ...
The harvest has dwindled,
and I have grown apart from
the intense midsummer relationship
that brought it on.
