PAINTING STUDIO Update Published on Windows Live by Stephen Craig Rowe


 
     In the light of the August moon there is a feeling of a season’s change that is as personal as an internal clock.  Something within one, just knows that summer is drawing to a close and clouds part to show a star to those who need to see a light in heaven under the August moon.
     The heat of August has dried some lawns and the trees have lost some of the lush green of summer.  I keep watering the little garden and recently gave it bump up with some bloom booster in order to provide some late roses for those who pass this way to enjoy.  For some a day without roses is rather like a meal without wine.  That bit of color, texture and touch of nature tends to compliment the experience of being as the shadows grow longer in the light of August.
     There but for a moment all of the trials, tribulations and woes of the world are as far away as they can be when one is in the garden, on a walk in the light, touching a bit of color, parting the clouds in dreams to see and catch stars, wonder at the terrible beauty of the universe and define ones place within and without the All.
     Indeed life is a gift and a blessing.
     As ever be well,  Stephen Craig Rowe

    Hi Stephen, Space is always made deeper when in passing through your garden I am left to ponder again: roses and wine and textures in color and rhythm in word and time.

    I hope you get a few more roses. I just gleaned all my potted plants today saving seeds and then dead heading all the rest. Then gave them there last boost of fertillizer. I hope by covering them and keeping them under the eaves of the house I can keep them going thru September. WE had our 1st frost a couple nights ago. Have a great week Hugs Carrie

    Such a beautiful rose, it keeps drawing me back, looking for the stars between the parting clouds. Ever a favourite time. Have a good week. Polly.

    Autumn is beautiful and cozy, and I adore all the holidays. But summer certainly has it’s blessings too and those blessings are missed come Autumn’s cool days and even cooler nights ….the weather is invigorating!

    Beautiful roses-wonderful post. Something so bittersweet about this time of the year. The grass, trees, flowers all die back-but somehow we know they’ll be back next spring-really amazing when you think about it.Tipperwww.blindpigandtheacorn.com
