I saw my first leaf fall the other night on a walk with my dog. It’s not the first time I noticed this right after the beginning of summer, just a few weeks after the longest day of the year. Just one of life’s paradox’s.
The flowers are opening a good month ahead of the “norm” of the last 12 years that I’ve been in these parts.
The wine berries are almost over, and the raspberries have been gone for several weeks. They were huge.
My butterfly bushes are gigantic, my 4 o’clock’s smell more intense than I can ever remember, and the skies seem bluer than I can recall. I want to enjoy what is in front of me, drink it in. Love what is. Find the source behind all that I see, smell, notice these days. I wonder if you are feeling this too? Well, I hope you are having a summer where your senses are taking in the beauty of the magnificant color and delight that comes through the flowers and nature!
