Summers Beauty...

I love Summer and all of it's splendor, but have to admit that Fall is probably my favorite time of year. I love the crisp mornings and the smell of the leaves as they compost and feed the Earth for next Springs growth. I love that the black flies and mosquitoes are minimal and that the sheep are content with the coolness that is approaching now. It's as though we all breathe deeper of life in the Fall....we know that winter will bring a time of gathering closer. I have to say that the "dog days" of summer are a bit much for me. The flowers that are part of our summer are exquisite, but I long for autumn breezes with the Sun dipping a little lower. I will miss the longer days of summer and will probably do some complaining about it when we change the clocks, but when winter does round the corner, I will be ready....snuggled up to the woodstove. I will then be looking forward to Spring and the new life of lambs and flowers and tiny veggies sprouting at my kitchen window. I so love New England and all of her seasons! I am content with where I am.....

  1. I love the fall and Virginia for those very same reasons--I can feel the change in the air here too.
