Sunday Stroll Invitation

"The leaves fall patiently
Nothing remembers or grieves
The river takes to the sea
The yellow drift of leaves."
- Sara Teasdale

Our creek is flowing again, hurrying past the flower garden on the creek bank. The water fills the empty spaces between the reeds and stalks and wild flowers that have grown thick in the dry months of summer. The rushing water stirs the shallows as it flows, until the edges of the marsh are fragrant with the mellow aroma of autumn decay and the sharp sweet scent of wild mint rising up into the chilly October air.

If you have time this week for a Sunday Stroll, and if your weather allows, please post about about it on your blog and then come back here with a comment and a link to your post. You may use the Sunday Stroll button at the top of this post on your post or side bar if you would like. I will add participant names to this post so other strollers can walk through your garden too. I'll check back as often as I can and try to keep the list updated.

Look who's strolling today:
Margaret at Periodic Pearls
Cloudhands at Uncarved Block
Me here at the Quiet Country House
Two late arrivals, too nice to miss!

Thank you, Ruth! I'm behind on posting blog awards! Maybe this will inspire me to post about a couple others also. Thanks for thinking of me!

Did I forget to post here. Well, I did post a blog. I was so fluster by also being tapped by Ruth as Over the Top that I guess I got all giddy and forgot to let you know. So------
