While we are in the midst of the dog days of August, it is easy to get discouraged when I look out into my garden. Now, that doesn’t mean that my garden looks bad….actually just the opposite. Many of my plants are in full bloom with lush, green growth. It is the lush, green growth that discourages me because my plants are calling to me to come outside and prune them.
Well, what is wrong with that? Well, it is still rather hot outside and I am so much more comfortable indoors with my best summer friend – my air conditioner. But, I promise I will soon venture outdoors again.
Meanwhile, there are many things this August that bring me joy….
I am grateful for the joys that August has brought, but I am looking forward to what the fall is bringing….
