Something Beautiful is a self-imposed initiative to find a visual feast for each day of a year.
Like so many parts of the states, there has been an unusual amount of rain this summer. The landscape is uncharacteristically green in August. Nevertheless at the long end of the month, the garden still reflects the passage of time. Seeds sprout in spring. Grow in summer. The cycle begins to finish at this time. Harvest.
The fond memories come. Aaron Copland’s Shaker melody from Appalachian Spring. Beautiful spreads of vegetables at the 4-H fair. Scrubbed, shiny, rich food pyramid colors. Plump and proudly displayed. A glorious garden bounty—Un giardino di taglie glorioso.
