A Year on Clear Lake-Aug 26, 2013

A Mid-Summer’s Gift–August 26, 2013

A lovely walk today. It’s still overcast, though not raining, just sputtering. The temperatures are cool–for this time of the year. It’s pleasant, not too much humidity, though we are assured it will not last. And so, we enjoy it for what it is, a midsummer’s gift.

Speaking of gifts, we have delighted in the light rain of the last few days. It has done its magic. The peninsula is alive with activity, as it always is when we have rain–from baby mockingbirds to tiny yellow moths and pretty purple wildflowers to yellow crowns, and even the deer.  Lovely, lovely day. A gift in every way.

Green Thought: “I’m a person of the mountains and the open paddocks and the big empty sky, that’s me, and I knew if I spent too long away from all that I’d die; I don’t know what of, I just knew I’d die.”
John Marsden, A Killing Frost
