Most of us are experiencing the beginning of the fall season
Perhaps with some regret
That summer is officially "over"
Except for those who live "down under"
Who have the summer to look forward to.
(Does that seem wierd or what??)
Here in the Cariboo,
We don't have seasons
Not in the traditional sense
We have "Colours"
Green, Yellow, White, & Brown
Our aspen trees will soon be brilliant yellow gold
Then we will have white (and blue, since much of our winter skies are brilliant blue)
Next comes the season of hope & renewal.........brown.
Brown you say?
When four feet of snow melts in 3 weeks, everything, everywhere, is mud.
Double that if you have a dog. Or little kids. Or big kids who haven't yet learned to take their shoes off at the door. Or a husband who looks at the bottoms of his boots and says to himself....."they're not too bad", and traipses to the sink for a glass of water....
And finally, the lovely emerald green of summer
I wouldn't have it any other way!!
I messed up the flickr credits, but here they are anyways...
