Oh my god, I can’t believe it is happening. Transitioning slowly, it didn’t immediately occur to me. Until after dinner one evening I looked up at the trees overhead. Where once a curtain of green foliage had obstructed the sky-view, now the outline of individual leaves were apparent.
Yes it was happening, summer had reached its peak. In response to natures call, all that is green had diminished their leaf regeneration. Not only the trees, but the lush undergrowth had also answered the call. Once hidden beneath a sea of green, dead branches peaked out adding a new dimension to the blanket of green.
Spurred into picking up the pace, I have prioritized the outdoor projects that just have to be done before winter, and those that can wait until next spring.
