Queen Anne's Lace abounds in upstate New York.
This delicate wildflower, along with beautiful blue chicory
grows along the roads and in every field.
...another one of August's simple yet glorious gifts.
People are beginning to speak about back to school ...
That troubles me.
I am not ready for summer to end...
...and you know what?
I had a revelation this afternoon.
Summer is not going to end anytime soon for me.
Because...well, I'm not going back to school this fall.
And...finally...my kids are not either!
So...no more talk about the fading away of summer days!
Mr. Flea and I have reached the time of life
where summer time truly seems endless!
And now, for all you Moms who are getting anxious
and already a bit frazzled at the prospect of back to school...
...take a breath.
Your gift is having your children with you...
...at this very moment in time.
Soon enough they will be grown and off on their own.
It happens when you're not looking.
It happens fast.
Hope you are enjoying your summer...
...even if you're already thinking back to school thoughts!
gee, I'm so philosophical today!
