There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature – the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after the winter.
– Rachel Carson (The Sense of Wonder)
We’re in the height of summer here in NE Ohio and I’m really enjoying it. The weather is warm, climbing into the mid 80’s on most days. The sun is strong, driving me indoors between noon and four. All these things bring the lush growth of the heat loving plants: peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, and zucchini.
Fall will come soon though, it seems each year the seasons get shorter – I suppose it’s because I’m getting older. One of the benefits of being a gardener is that you become keenly aware of the distinctness of each season, the good things, the challenging things. I certainly would not want to live anywhere without a variety of seasons!
What are you enjoying about the season you’re in wherever your garden happens to be?Filed under Quote | Comments (11)
