Clear and cold, though still no first frost. In the garden, the lily-of-the-valley berries have dulled over like the hearts of dead moles.

This will be the last report from the morning porch until October 23.

  1. “lily-of-the-valley berries have dulled over like the hearts of dead moles.” Stunning. The little mole of a poem begins to stir at these words. Thank you.


  2. oh phew !
    I was going to write, “BUT I LIKE the reports!!”
    but now I only have to make it 10 days without thanks!


  3. Thanks wrensong and Elisa both for your kind words. Part of me wishes I never had to leave the hollow, but it’s good to get out of my comfort zone once in a while, I think. (Just enjoyed the hell out of a five-km nature walk next to the Stockholm airport while waiting for my flight to Berlin.)
