Late August

Oh how the time is moving. So quickly. So slowly. Somehow simultaneously. We are in the depths of the season, with many crops ready to harvest,and  more weeds to pull than ever. Persistemce. The days are growing shorter, and fall is beginning to show her presence in the most subtle of ways. In the last few weeks I have begun to notice many crickets and grasshoppers that weren’t with us before. They have been making beautiful music at night. The flowers we planted on the summer solstice are in full bloom. The occasional heron flight over head, the raven songs, the deer calls at night. These are how I will remember August.
