SPEAKING OF YELLOW
Michelle said I should share pics of my new and improved garden, so here you go.
The tree with the yellow leaves is a sugar maple (and the inspiration for the "November" poem posted last Sunday).
The Bird Girl is a favorite of mine... and she is the inspiration for another poem, one entitled "Suicide Ghazal." I'll post that one next Sunday.
The little tree that's shaped like a goblet and has a smattering of red leaves is my new dogwood. Can't wait to see how it all looks in spring!
"Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing."
