I really needed a memory of summer that was iconic, where I could feel the heat, see the sun and appreciate all the activities that we can do when the weather is milder. Here was one photograph that summed that up for me. It was a bunch of these lovely sunflowers (= sun), in a jar on a farm stand step (= activities) in the shade so they didn’t wilt (= heat). Despite that, we can see that the sun has crept around to start shining on these, so one side is lit nicely. As I was putting on my heavy coat, boots and scarf to go for a short walk up the road, I remembered days like those, when you walk straight out of the cool house into the heat of the day, wearing light shoes and a tee-shirt. Those days when it’s too hot to wear a watch! These will return, so all I have to do is remember to appreciate the freshness of the winter, and days when the temperature is so low that the moisture in the air is like tiny diamonds, sparkling everywhere. With that strict reminder to myself to think positively of the beauty of this day, I take another little glance at this reminder of that lovely summer day. And know that the summer will return. I hope you all enjoy both thoughts today, friends. Flower a Day #480 View all posts on the Home page.
