July premieres spring’s fulfilled promise in verdure and halcyon days…come to think, in so many ways.
The brook returns to laziness after spring’s tumult. Cicadas practice for August’s chorus.
Crickets make music in the fields. A gentle drowsiness settles over the woods, zephyrs gossip in the leaves.
Pitter patter crescendoes to heavy rain, maybe to be followed by bright sun and drip, drip, drip.
Lightening bugs, mosquitos, deer flies and ticks…all part of the scene.
Take a walk on the “wild” side, along a forest path, skirt a field, get outside.
Think about adopting a Bow Open Spaces path this fall with the mission of keeping it free from deadfall and inviting for all to use.
More on that later in a subsequent post!
