Dormancy is necessary, as much a part of the cycle as growth. We've seen what a sleepless culture has done to our society, to our patience, to our resistance to stress, anxiety, and depression. And though we'd be wise to value rest far more than we do, we can't allow ourselves to ignore the inevitable nibbles of restlessness.

We can't ignore the lengthening days, the muscles of our legs and feet firing in readiness for a season of activity--not mindless or habitual busyness. That distinction is important. There is no growth with exhaustion, with nagging obligation. If we're doing this right, if we're honoring the physical, mental, spiritual signals calling us to move, calling us back to the earth, then we need answer to no one. We need not say yes when our deep, soft spirit says no. 
We are here to breed compassionate hearts, but not at the risk of our own wellbeing. Risk that, and we risk pitching headlong into dormancy, lingering there as one season follows another. •  #dormantseason #path #signsofspring #littlestoriesofmylife #quietearthyoga #satyaoftheday

This Dioscorea elephantipes is dormant during our summer and grows during our winter which would correspond to its native rainy season. #goldleafplants

Beyond food, plants provide #nesting material for a variety of #wildlife as they segue into the dormant season. "Messy" #wintergardens are healthy, valuable gardens!

Park Pride's #Pollinators in Parks program in p'ship with the Atlanta Botanical Garden with funding support by Team Depot.

A messy, #untidygarden provides #food, #shelter, and #warmth for an array of #smallcreatures during the #winter. The @parkpride #PollinatorGarden program required construction next to an active #communitygarden. ... and within 24 hours the garden was covered in 6 - 8 inches of snow!

The dormant season is the best time for pruning most trees with a few exceptions // However, don’t run to your saws just yet because a correct cut is more important than correct timing // Pictured is a decent illustration of what to be on the look-out for the wound to properly heal.  Picture 2 is a live oak that has been improperly cut, leaving a stub that will give way to suckering growth and perhaps even internal rot // Don’t Be “that guy” 💚

Simple #pollinatorgarden #flowers remind us to appreciate the chill within the #dormantseason; it is necessary for #rebirth within the warmth of spring.

A reminder to Self to appreciate Atlanta's recent COLD spell - it is perfect and in Divine order!

The peaceful #ChattahoocheeRiver is the perfect setting for the #Ignatius House #Jesuit #Retreat Center.

A week ago today I completed my first silent retreat at the #IgnatiusHouse #JesuitRetreatCenter Atlanta - what an #empowering experience! The retreat was the perfect preparation for my Sarasota visit to support my Mother in her tremendous grief, sorrow & heartache related to her Beloved's departure.

An "untidy, messy" #wintergarden is a #healthyhome, full of life, for #pollinators. Remember to "#leavetheleaves," along with sticks, gone-to-seed flowers, and other remnants of the vibrant summer garden. Let the #circleoflife continue! ... and 36 hours later the garden was covered in six inches of snow!

The #dormantseason is a powerful time for #creation and #rebirthing, especially for those who are well prepared.

Editing the Grove Park #PollinatorGarden photos in its dormant state inspired me to edit a busy pollinator!

Whew, I have a plethora of pollinator photos awaiting edits from Nov & early Dec neighborhood photo shoots - my tripod was with me so most are "A" quality shots. Through the winter I will indulge in some warm weather editing!!! #pollinators #pollinatorheros #bee #carpenterbee #fallbees #nativebees #autumn #insects #heartconnection #nature #naturewalk #naturephotography #macro #macrophotography #urban #urbangarden #urbanbees #floweringplant #wildlife #urbanwildlife #wildlifephotography #neighborhood #Buckhead #BuckheadAtlanta #hollyelmore #hollyelmoreimages

Though no longer providing #nutrition for #pollinators, the dominant swamp sunflower continues valuable contributions within the #pollinatorgarden #ecosystem and beyond.

I found the scene somewhat #eerie and it spoke loudly to me. Love how the plant worked the capture so minimal edits required, no cropping, no color adjustments - only some distraction removal.  IG took a chunk of the photo bottom off; image looks much, much better in full size.

And so we say goodbye to November and the season’s colours. Nature returns to a deep slumber in readiness for her rebirth. Sometimes I wish we could do the same! .

Some types of ornamental grass have these fluffy puffs for flowers. I wish they bloomed before fall because it seems I'm always cutting them back right after they start to flower. Some clients, like this one, prefer a fall cut to leaving them up all winter because they look messy after a good snowstorm. The season is officially over for this Miscanthus 'Morning Light'. Till next year! #byefornow #goodnight #sleeptight #seeyounextyear #dormantseason #ornamentalgrasses #fluffypuff #flowers #miscanthus #morninglight #hemlocks #forest #avonmountain #connecticut #smartyplants

**Last Chance to Apply Dormant Spray!**
Dormant Spray / Horticultural Oil & Liquid Copper Fungicide.

Until recently, many trees and shrubs have been tucked away for their winter sleep. The great thing about the winter hibernation is that most of the bugs are taking a nap as well. But rest assured, they will be back in spring if you do not prevent them now.

Dormant spray is one of the most effective ways to prevent problems this next year. A combination spray of Horticultural Spray Oil to suffocate the bugs, and a copper or sulfur spray to eliminate the fungus, will stop those over-wintering pests where they are sleeping allowing you to enjoy a pest free spring. So if you had aphids or white flies bugging you last summer, and with our recent rains the mildew fungus is sure to be among us this spring, apply the dormant spray now before it’s too late.

Remember to apply after any frost in the morning and before sunset in the evening. It's already getting too warm to apply in the mid-heat of the day. We hope to have 1-2 more weeks of application time.
Any specific questions? Come on down and speak with our resident experts on what is best for your yard.

Common Goldeneye -
photographing you should have a soundtrack of an 80's video game. You constantly drop out of sight with no clues given where you will return, and if I try too hard the whistle of your wings is my ultimate defeat. This comedy echos my life events as I try to just get that shot- 
At the end of the day we still have the "smile" in the big picture (btw bird, your butt is prettier than those creepy eyes anyway)

We now have our straw for this years garden season...... now the long wait! Back to my seed catalogue browsing! Notice the lack of the white stuff? January is going to end on the warm side......Wonder what February will have in store for our Maritime provinces??

Don't forget about your trees this winter!  Here are 6 reasons to prune your trees during the dormant season.  #pruning #dormantseason #treecare #maintenance #diseasemanagement #weatherprep #improvedhealth

Now is the time to #prune trees to ensure healthy trees in the spring. Yearly pruning during the first few years after planting will often help the tree to become established and to develop a structure that is both strong and aesthetically pleasing. 
There is no standard method of pruning, but certain rules and procedures should be followed. First, start at the top of the tree and work down. This makes it easier to shape the tree and saves time in clearing the tree of pruned branches that have become lodged. Make clean cuts as close to the remaining branch as possible. Dead branches should be cut back to a living crotch so that healthy tissue surrounds the final cut.

Look to #muextension for specific details on pruning all types of trees and shrubs. #MUEXT101 #Mizzou #dormantseason

Today I'm thankful for: 21 blooms and counting on this beautiful Orchid. After months of dormancy and wondering if it would bloom again, it's bigger and more beautiful than it was before. ••• I was thinking how much this can represent our lives. How often does it feel like we're in a season of dormancy; waiting, resting, and in all appearances, looking rather dead. These seasons are hard, long, and sometimes lonely, but they're not the end of the journey. We have a choice today: we can believe we've reached the end, and have nothing left to offer; or, we can believe that God is growing our roots, taking us deeper, to be stronger and more magnificently beautiful when our time comes to bloom again. #thingsimthankfulfor #attitudeofgratitude #gratitudeisadiscipline #orchids #dormantseason #getaftergrateful
