The longest days are now as the sun is directly overhead. Enjoy them.
This year, I marked the summer solstice by the 11th week of walks to the Franciscan Life Process Center through the summer woods.
I noticed the arrival of summer in the woods last week, as the wildflowers disappeared and flowering rosemary bushes replaced them, along with the flowering Japanese lilac tree by the center.
Yesterday, I could smell the fresh-cut grass for feeding. On a good year, there are three cuttings of grass for hay.
My favorite spireas also blossomed last week, and wild orange lilies joined them together with fireflies in the evening.
The seasons in the woods are refreshing, with fall being the most colorful. Follow me on my walks throughout the seasons.
Walking is my favorite activity if I need to take a break from writing or if I am looking for inspiration.
Nature has always inspired me.
