As much as it is sad to see the end of summer and then harvest season, there is something satisfying to me about putting the gardens to bed for the winter. After a slow day at my shop, the physical labor in the garden was just what I needed on that Sunday after work.
It was a comfortable autumn evening, and my hubby came down to help me pull up plants, tomato cages, and bean poles. Our farm birds love to help as well! They come down to see what we are doing, and they get excited about what might come out of the ground with the roots of those plants!
I’ll miss the fresh vegetables but I enjoy what changes each season brings on the farm. It’s the cycle of life….the dead plants go into the compost pile which will help to enrich and grow next year’s garden.
As I walked up the hill towards the house, with the sun disappearing behind the trees, I couldn’t help but draw parallels to other parts of life, like this blog ending. While it’s the end of Wag ‘n Woof Pets, the seeds were planted here and will bring the beginning and life to our new website and blog.
Both Luke and our farm birds will carry on what was started here. It will be different, but the things we learned from our rainbow crew will carry on.
Life will go on while I am transitioning things; Luke and I will have our autumn walks, and the older and young birds will be eventually fully integrated (we’re almost there). I’ll be saving up our stories while we’re off making our changes.
I want to say thank you to all of our angel canine and feline crew for the stories they gave me to share…..and also to the angels that went before I even started the blog; their stories will live on in our archives at the new blog as well. Maggie, Shelby, Katie, Don Juan, and many more….their memories all live on as we move on to something new.
For this last Nature Friday for us we thought we’d share a few more autumn photos from around the farm:
Wish us luck with our move and we’ll see you at our new place soon! ♥
