“The first is that some people are unaware of the seasons or the natural world at all. The second is that modern life has so blunted the edges of the seasons for most people that hey just slide by in a smooth, well-blended continuum. For myself, I find the seasons’ teeth bite deep. And even winter with freak flowers and blossoms appearing out of season like Christmas cards arriving in May, there is no way out of this one. We are staring November in the face and winter lies unavoidably ahead.”
Monty Don (The Ivington Diaries)
Yesterday was a beautiful day here in Maine, sunny, warm with a high of around 65. I was outside from sun up to sun down cleaning out the chicken coop, mulching and checking a few things off the endless list. There is snow in the forecast for today, winter will be her before I know it.
