the dirt on next summer

on every summer.  that is the compost pile.  it is an assist to nature’s way of reusing what some of us would throw away.  waste not.  the leaves and garden scraps do not go out in the trash.  they go into the compost and eventually back into the garden.  soil is an organic fabric that should be constantly renewed.  when it is renewed soil is enriched.  and the fabric is a deep and complex brocade.  like the upturned bird bath covered in snow and resembling a mushroom –  what we so often see as waste and rot is only half of the story.  yes things come apart.  and what has come apart is part of the building blocks of what is to come.  seven images…
