During this month of August, we have had rain and cold windy days and the fire is still burning providing beautiful cosy warmth. But soon all the wood and the fire will be put away for another year and it will be time to uncover the air-conditioner in readiness for the heat that will come.
There are gentle signs of spring in the garden with a few buds appearing and new life in the form of fresh green leaves. The birds have found their voice and the bees are buzzing about getting their fill of nectar and pollen. At the moment the ground is still too cold for planting seedlings but this will soon change as the days begin to warm. Out back in the patch the beds have all been prepped and ready to go, and I can barely wait to get those veggies growing for another season.
And as another season draws to a close, the new one brings with it new life and hope.
Are you looking forward to spring?
