Early mornings are a delightful 50 degrees and then in a few hours it begins to climb onward to 90. Living close to the woods brings the advantage of being slightly cooler and usually a delightful breeze.
Many hours for several days have been spent working outside. Flowers and herbs surroundings Woodhaven still have a lot of summer beauty.
The nature path in the woods is finished. I am so pleased. There have been weeks of raking, branches removed, root stubble's cut and path swept:). I can walk under the towering trees - deeper into the woods and have checked out an area that I remember last Fall. After a rain some of the wild ferns will be transplanted closer to my cottage. This path will be walked often at dawn and later in the day. Callie always my companion.
The quiet and peacefulness in the woods is almost breathtaking. The towering tree's a delight for One Woman to behold.
I smile when I think of my son viewing his mom's handiwork. I can remember his comment for me not to clear the woods. When he visits he will see it is just a path :) All of my children love to walk and hopefully they will help keep this path clear.
"I never found the companion that was so companionable as solitude. We are for the most part more lonely when we go abroad among men then when we stay in our chambers"
