I went outside walking around the back and took the time to smell the roses, the blooms are different at this time of year. They look a little faded, yet still beautiful in a delicate antique fashion. Roses are so pretty; fresh, slightly faded or pressed, I can linger in a rose garden for hours. It’s interesting that for a flower that conjures up words such as delicate and precious, the roses can be quite hardy, blooming deep into autumn. I aim to enjoy my roses for as long as they allow me these remaining weeks of nice weather.
For many of us the seasons are changing, bouncing unpredictably between cold and warm. Are you glad to be moving into a new season, or wishing for one more week of the old?
I am enjoying our resurgence of the warm weather. Having experienced a small chilly snap last week, I decided that I wasn’t quite ready for permanent cold weather. I need more time to mentally and physically acclimate to temperatures that are below 55 degrees . I am not ready to let go of 65 degrees yet, though having the fall foliage displayed in all of its magnificence on a daily basis is incredible and a gift.
I wonder what it would be like to live in a change free environment. I think of it as a warm place, I never wonder what it would be like to live permanently cold because I already know that I would move away, I wouldn’t stay for long. In the case of permanent warm weather, I don’t know if I would miss the changing seasons, at least for the short term.
Island living with palm trees, blue skies and tranquil waters with balmy temperatures in the low 80’s would be quite lovely, at Christmastime I would decorate the palm trees somehow to add some yuletide cheer. Christmas spirit is much more than the surrounding environment, no snow shouldn’t mean no Christmas feeling. Sunshine practically everyday, I wonder if that would ever get old?
For now I will be taking in as much nice weather as possible and hopefully it will last for another few weeks. 🙂
