Hey, the sky is clear, blue and warm. What up with that?
Long walk through the river valley, feeling the unfiltered sun on my shoulders. Ramped up squirrel activity in the bush, suggesting something cooler and whiter might be just around the corner, but for now, it’s summer.
Checked my journal for 2009 and 2008 and on August 24th of each year, coincidentally, I made note of the prevalence of yellow leaves in the river valley. Not this year. There are a few, here and there, but I think all the rain this summer slowed down the usual progression of the seasons. The fully nourished leaves aren’t so keen to split the scene.
