In the cycle of garden growth we become focused on the appearance of buds and their progress to full flower. Soon though, a process of natural attrition begins with winged and crawling creatures leaving a pattern of their teeth marks across leaves and petals, even consuming whole flowers overnight.
The wind and sun extract moisture, growth stops, and edges brown and crinkle. Petals and leaves twist and crumble. Seed pods form, mature into containers, then open spilling spreading contents. This process of tearing and rubbing away, shriveling and desiccating, with its own beauty, creates the possibilities for renewal.
