Each season has its particular joys. Before summer ends, I want to make time to …
Hang laundry on the clothesline and crawl between clean sheets that smell of sun & wind.
Pause to watch the flickering lights of fireflies when I let my dog Codi out before bed.
Breathe in the smell of freshly mown grass.
Revel in the many shades of green starting with deciduous leaves, grasses and ferns.
Savor corn on the cob, ripe heirloom tomatoes, juicy peaches, sweet cherries, fresh basil.
Listen to the gentle summer rain on the roof.
Delight in all the flowers starting with orange daylilies, mammoth sunflowers, Shasta daisies, and black-eyed Susans.
What about you? What do you want to enjoy before summer ends? I’d love to hear.
The Like a Wildflower kitchen towels were inspired by a painting by the local artist Donna Estabrooks that caught my eye at the café where I like to write. The painting is titled “May your life be like a wildflower.”
