The summer is speeding by as it always does, with never as much time as it held when we were children. Where is all that time to sit in the sun, to read for hours on end and to wonder and play with no goal or end in sight.? Ah well...
Last night I went for a walk and this is what I saw:
A heron big flying onto the small top branches of a giant fir tree and sitting there in hopeful quiet.
Three white geese following their owner noisily around their yard with a chicken closing the parade.
A young man searching for ripe blackberries to feed his old golden retriever on their walk.
A father pulling his 2 daughters in a wagon while the older girl (4 years) explained thunder clouds to her sister.
A black and white wood duck with a bright red eye-patch splashing and playing in a pond.
Oh summer evening walking!
Have a great day and take time to enjoy the summer moments. You will want to harvest them and store them for the winter.
