|This morning's rose|
I'm going to try and write a quick post for my Tuesday offering, since I've got to leave soon for an acupuncture treatment. I saw this lovely creature on the way home from my morning walk, which started at the Cornwall Rose Garden. There aren't many looking as beautiful as this one; many have reached their peak and are dropping petals. If you look closely, you can see some dew still on these pretty petals, after a cool morning, not frosty but close.
This is my favorite weather of the year. After heat and humidity making the environment uncomfortable, everything has changed around here to perfection. Soon we will enter into what we call Indian Summer, where the leaves change to riotous colors and the nights get colder. Soon I will bring out my winter covers for even better sleep.
I did see on the news how awful it is right now in California, and I commiserate for those of you trying to find comfort when the overnight temperatures are warmer than it should be during the heat of the day. But as all things do, it will pass. One thing about the weather is that is doesn't stay static but dynamically changes from day to day.
Well, this will have to do for today, since I've getting ready to make a dash out the door to head to my appointment. After that, I've got another appointment for a massage, and I'll just have to grin and bear it (not!).
