It’s been cool this week, the first real signs of autumn after several weeks of fine weather. Perhaps it’s confused the plants.Our peach trees started to sprout new leaves; half a dozen self-seeded tomato plants have emerged, looking strong and healthy. There’s another which has started growing amongst one of the three bamboo plants out the front.
So much is out of kilter in the economic and political world; like sparks from a failing electricity grid.
It’s good to connect with the drive for life amongst out of season plants. It invites slowing down to connect with what’s at work with these plants, to hear what they might have to say, what they may be wanting, where the balance may lie, what it may be seeking.
