“Morning is an important time of day, because how you spend your morning can often tell you what kind of day you are going to have.”
― Lemony Snicket
Dawn broke forth bright and very cool this past weekend. That’s the nature of September around here. Glorious, warm days spent basking in the last few weeks of summer, hoping for a mild and extended fall.
It’s been a hot and dry summer here in southern Ontario, a bit too dry for plants, which are showing signs of heat stress. But, I hate to say goodbye to such a wonderful summer, spent hiking, canoeing, and gardening. Yet, the gradual change of seasons brings pleasant surprises, like the soft sunshine, creating tiny jewels in the tamarack branches, greeting me as I rounded a corner during my morning walk, bringing a smile to my face.
