White Picket Garden Gates + Autumn Hydrangeas



When you arise in the morning,
think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive
to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love
then make the day count!

Is there a shift in the seasons yet where you are? I can already tell fall is trying to sneak away. Autumn is never long enough for me. I hope winter can hold off at least until all of the flowers have a chance to fade! Im still enjoying it all!

I thought before fall gets too away from us, Id share a few end of season images from my yard. I sometimes forget what Ive shared here and what I havent. I always intend to share so much more, but its not easy to keep up with everything I intend to do! Anyone else relate?

Im in so love with the beautiful hue of these hydrangeas right now. They start out pure white in summer, but the fading pink/coral/orange color they are now seems so perfect as a grand finale to fall! I love seeing the color on the other side of the white picket garden gates, too.

You can see the hydrangeas from last year when they were white (at the beginning of summer) in this post about our deck here.

The more seasons we live in this house, the more I notice Im able to be observant of smaller details. I recognize even subtle changes in the leaves and blooms and how they change week to week, season over season. I start to appreciate how each plant changes and has grown from the year before.

Theres something so peaceful and refreshing in observing how a garden grows and evolves. I love experiencing familiar seasonal changes and rhythms in a home, especially in fall.

Those changes year over year and season over season are the special things you miss out on when you move every few years. Or even when youre always rushing on to the next season or project.

Its fun to look forward to whats new, of course, but slowing down to just be present in and appreciate the here and now is my favorite.

I still prefer to hold a real book in my hand, but $1.99 is a great deal!

We all want to feel that our home is our haven, but, in between the messes and everyday life, it can be hard to get to that point. InDwelling, Melissa Michaels shares how to create a haven in your home, body, and spirit in a way that is both doable and uplifting, with words of encouragement and the sure knowledge of having experienced this difficulty firsthand.
