Change of Season and the End of Birthday Month

This is the flash of red at the bottom of my garden. These blossoms herald the end of summer and the start of autumn and coincide with shortening days and chilly mornings. Today marks the last day of summer and the end of birthday month. When the boys were little we would take our annual holiday in March just to recover from the all the birthdays. I just love autumn and I find myself about this time each year scrutinizing the Japanese maple for signs of change. I'm lucky to live in one of the few places in Australia that has the seasons in all their glory. I know some of my antipodean friends are probably looking forward to spring after what has been a long cold winter, if the newspapers are to be believed. So what's your favourite season? Does it change the the focus of your work?

It is so interesting to here from someone in an opposite cycle. It's a gentle reminder that there is something inspirational in all the seasons!

What an interesting garden you must have. I'd love to see more pictures of it!
