Old Man Tree: August 1

It’s been a relatively mild and wet summer around here and that’s been nice for Old Man Tree, who did not enjoy last year’s drought conditions.  His tall and broad limbs have plenty of green leaves but even as I pause to admire them, I am aware that Mother Nature is slowly turning us toward the next season.

By September 1, my mind will be on the coming school year and Old Man Tree will be getting ready for Fall.  

Until then, we’ll together enjoy the sunny August days, sure that the passage of time need not be rushed along.
